 Location-based service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A location-based service (or LBS) in a cellular telephone network is a service provided to the subscriber based on their current geographical location.
This is especially useful when dialing an emergency telephone number, such as enhanced 9-1-1 in North America, so that the operator can dispatch emergency police or firefighting services to the correct location.
This position can be known by user entry or a GPS receiver that she carries with her, but most often the term implies the use of a radiolocation function built into the cell network or handset that uses triangulation between the known geographic coordinates of the base stations through which the communication takes place.
