Recent research in mobile computing has shown that Location Based Services (LBS) is an emerging area in mobile applications. It refers that services provided to the user based on location. LBS become the most promising services of mobile computing besides voice and data services. It's growing in popularity due to the ubiquity of smart phone users. Apart from positioning, LBS is highly dynamic, so that traditional information management techniques are not well suited in LBS. To answer this challenge, the authors analyze the dynamic nature of the problems and then they propose a framework for data management in LBS, which includes a set of data management techniques to improve the services better with respect to dynamic access.
