Geospatial computing includes utilizing computing devices and sensors to acquire, process, analyze, manage, and visualize geospatial data, which users can then interact with via a large variety of smart geospatial applications. Geospatial computing is a computational-demanding task, in terms of computation power, data storage capacity, and memory space. Therefore, it has primarily been performed on non-mobile computers. Recent developments allow smartphones to meet many of the demanded requirements for geospatial computing. This book addresses the topic of geospatial computing in smartphones, including positioning, mobile Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and smart mobile applications. You are provided with aspects related to positioning methods, as well as solutions for geospatial data acquisition, processing, and visualization. This resource also covers various aspects of the application technologies, such as context detection and context intelligence.

With today’s consumers spending more time on their mobiles than on their PCs, new methods of empirical stochastic modeling have emerged that can provide marketers with detailed information about the products, content, and services their customers desire. Data Mining Mobile Devices defines the collection of machine-sensed environmental data pertaining to human social behavior. It explains how the integration of data mining and machine learning can enable the modeling of conversation context, proximity sensing, and geospatial location throughout large communities of mobile users. Examines the construction and leveraging of mobile sites Describes how to use mobile apps to gather key data about consumers’ behavior and preferences Discusses mobile mobs, which can be differentiated as distinct marketplaces—including Apple®, Google®, Facebook®, Amazon®, and Twitter® Provides detailed coverage of mobile analytics via clustering, text, and classification AI software and techniques Mobile devices serve as detailed diaries of a person, continuously and intimately broadcasting where, how, when, and what products, services, and content your consumers desire. The future is mobile—data mining starts and stops in consumers' pockets. Describing how to analyze Wi-Fi and GPS data from websites and apps, the book explains how to model mined data through the use of artificial intelligence software. It also discusses the monetization of mobile devices’ desires and preferences that can lead to the triangulated marketing of content, products, or services to billions of consumers—in a relevant, anonymous, and personal manner.

This brief considers the various stakeholders in today's mobile device ecosystem, and analyzes why widely-deployed hardware security primitives on mobile device platforms are inaccessible to application developers and end-users. Existing proposals are also evaluated for leveraging such primitives, and proves that they can indeed strengthen the security properties available to applications and users, without reducing the properties currently enjoyed by OEMs and network carriers. Finally, this brief makes recommendations for future research that may yield practical and deployable results.
