This book provides a general overview of research activities related to locati- based services. These activities have emerged over the last years, especially around issues of positioning, sensor fusion, spatial modelling, cartographic communi- tion as well as in the ? elds of ubiquitious cartography, geo-pervasive services, user-centered modelling and geo-wiki activities. The innovative and contemporary character of these topics has led to a great variety of interdisciplinary contributions, from academia to business, from computer science to geodesy. Topics cover an enormous range with heterogenous relationships to the main book issues. Whilst contemporary cartography aims at looking at new and ef? cient ways for com- nicating spatial information, the development and availability of technologies like mobile networking, mobile devices or short-range sensors lead to interesting new possibilities for achieving this aim. By trying to make use of available technologies, cartography and a variety of related disciplines look speci? cally at user-centered and context-aware system development, as well as new forms of supporting way? nding and navigation systems. The contributions are a selection of full reviewed papers submitted to the th 5 Conference on Location Based Services and TeleCartography in Salzburg November 2008, jointly organized by Salzburg Research and Vienna University of Technology, Research Group Cartography. The production of this book would not have been possible without the prof- sional and formidable work of Manuela Schmidt and Felix Ortag. The editors are grateful for their help as well as for the help of Sven Leitinger.
