What is LBS or location-based services?

Apps which integrate the geographical location of a mobile device (its co-ordinates) with other information on nearby services, so as to provide added value to users. Examples of LBS are mapping services, yellow pages, or navigation systems for vehicles.

Communication is carried out in real time through the device itself, which becomes a platform allowing you to view, for example, tourist information, the maximum capacity of a show that is being held in the area, how many establishments providing a particular service can be found in a particular street, or at what point along its route a particular bus finds itself.
