Definition

A location-based recommendation is an information filtering service, which selectively returns items (e.g., venues, travel routes, friends, or social media) to a user with the consideration of relevant spatial information (e.g., current/historical locations) and the personal preferences. The recommended results typically include k items with the highest predicated scores, which are calculated based on: (1) a recommendation technique/model (such as content-based filtering, link analysis, or collaborative filtering) and (2) the spatial relevance (like Euclidean distance or network distances).

Historical Background

Location-based recommendation system is one of the key social applications in urban space (Zheng et al. 2014), which emerge from two lines of research: (1) location-based services and (2) recommendation services. The traditional location-based services answer spatial queries, such as k nearest neighbor...
