This book gives a general view of research-driven activities related to the location and map-based services. Such activities emerged in the last years especially concerning issues of positioning, spatial modelling, cartographic communication as well as in the fields of ubiquitous cartography, geo-pervasive services, user-centered modelling or geo-wiki activities. The innovative and contemporary character of the topics leads to a great variety of contributions in terms of interdisciplinarity, with such varying backgrounds as from academia to business, from computer science to geodesy, covering an enormous number of topics with a heterogenous relation to the conference's main topic. While contemporary cartography aims to look at new and efficient ways of communication in spatial information, the development and availability of technologies such as mobile networking, mobile devices or short-range sensors lead to interesting new possibilities of attaining this goal. By trying to make use of available technologies, cartographers and a variety of related disciplines look specifically at user-centered and context-aware system development as well as new forms of supporting wayfinding and navigation systems.
