Seminar zum Thema "Lokalisierung" SS2006


Betreuer: Steve Hinske
Student: Ionut Iosifescu Enescu


The increased mobility of people and computers has created a growing demand for location information. In the first part, we present a review of the existing location models as basis for identifying, interpreting and describing location. A location model should specify not only an object own physical location but also the location of other objects as well as the spatial relationships between them. In the second part we present the practical usage of such models by providing real applications examples of hybrid location models and sidewalk network databases.
