This book gives a general picture of research-driven activities related to location and map-based services. The interdisciplinary character of the topic leads to a variety of contributions with backgrounds from academia to business and from computer science to geodesy. While cartography is aiming at efficient communication of spatial information, the development and availability of technologies like mobile networking, mobile devices or short-range sensors lead to interesting new possibilities of achieving this aim. By trying to make use of the available technologies, a variety of related disciplines looks specifically at user-centered and context-aware system development, especially in wayfinding and navigation systems.The performance for edge extraction was measured during ten runs on a Google Nexus One with Android 2.2 OS. ... The experiment figured out that image processing algorithm can be developed on astate-of-the-arta smartphones nowadays, anbsp;...
