LBS is a slightly older idea than Mobile GIS, but both require ‘location aware’ users if they are to be successful. Implied here is a plea for new workers not only to look at Mobile GIS literature, but also that of LBS. In Chapter 3 (‘Location Privacy and Location-aware Computing’) Duckham and Kulik question the awareness of mobile technology’s enthusiasts of the onslaught on our privacy that Dynamic and Mobile GIS may bring. This may have negative 2 Dynamic and Mobile GIS: Investigating Changes in Space and Time effects on the uptake of Mobile GIS particularly if the vulnerability of users to location based ‘spam’, personal safety and other intrusions into our private lives is not considered.

Mobile map services and POI searching. (a) The system gives the user six map operations, namely, load map, zoom in, zoom out, scale, roam and extents—to show the whole map. (b) Shows the POI information: name, address, post code and telephone, etc. (c) Schematic map showing in mobile phone display (Note: all original dialogue is in Chinese). Urban disaster management. When urban disasters strike, the disaster events can, by means of mobile GIS, inform decision makers in a timely manner. With location information marked on the map of a hand-held device alarm messages can be sent to the emergency service and the shortest route can be computed and displayed, enhancing public security, by improving the efficiency of the emergency services.
