The growth of mobile technology has made recording of user’s location possible. The systems that intent to use location in order to register user’s movement and to use the generated data for extracting useful knowledge define a new area of research that has technological as well as theoretical underpinnings. Many location based systems have been developed until now and some first directions and experiences have emerged. In this paper we focus on how some representative examples of these systems collect location information, what parameters use for tracking location and motion, how they model location, and thus tendencies appear on locating persons and objects.
