This paper introduces the most significant concepts concerning location based computing. Location Based Services (LBS) is the ability to find the geographical location of the mobile device and provide services based on this location information. Location related services are described as next revolution on services and functionality in the mobile network. A very important issue of location-based services is the mobile positioning. That is the technique that makes possible to estimate the geographical position of a mobile device. Various types of mobile positioning techniques have been proposed for locating mobile devices. Generally, the positioning methods can be categorized into three groups: network based, handset based and hybrid methods. The location based or location-aware computing involves the automatic tailoring of information and services based on the current user's location. Due to technical progress in various fields, digital location information is available to software applications running on many different mobile computing platforms. Therefore, location-based computing has made possible applications with the capability to sense their location and modify their settings, user interface, and functions accordingly.
