The development of wireless communication systems available today for mobile environments and the evolution of smaller and more powerful mobile computing devices provide the prerequisites to access information anywhere at any time. More and more this technical feasibility either enhances mobile applications with location dependent services or even generates new types of services. Provision of location aware information has always to deal with some basic sub-tasks. The most important of them are the determination/tracking of the (geographic) user position and the provision and submission of the location-related information. Let's take a look at presented two current research projects of the INI-GraphicsNet, concerning location based services in indoor and outdoor environments along with a rough view especially on used tracking technologies.
