What is LBS or location based services?

Applications that integrate the geographical location of a mobile device (its coordinates) with other information on services close to the place in order to provide added value to the user. Examples of LBS are map services, yellow pages, or car navigation systems.

Communication is carried out in real time through the device itself, which becomes a platform to consult, for example, tourist information, the capacity of a show that takes place nearby, how many establishments of a certain service exist on a street, or in which section of your route a bus is located.
