Location-Aware Web System

Amir Haghighat, Cristina Videira Lopes, Tony Givargis, Atri Mandal


We describe the Location-Aware Web System (LAWS), a location-aware system built on top of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). LAWS adds location-dependent virtual browsing experience to the users who are navigating in the physical space with any web browser-enabled roaming device (i.e.: PDA, Smartphone). The distinct characteristic about LAWS is its high degree of modularity and flexibility. By embedding the location information in HTTP requests, we can add location to the system while using existing browsers and existing web servers. This way, there is also, to some degree, independence between the overall system and the positioning system. LAWS can be used in a number of different environments using different positioning systems, and serving different purposes.
