location-based service, domain transformation


A two-domain approach involving position and location has been introduced to provide a formal description needed for optimal organization of information processing for utilization in Location-Based Services development and operation. This paper proposes the transformation that connects the two domains (position and location), outlines its formal description, and validates the concept using the Context-Matching method as a paradigm.
