Location is a core concept in most pervasive systems-and one that's surprisingly hard to deal with flexibly. Using a location model supporting a range of expressive representations for spaces, spatial relationships, and positioning systems, the authors constructed LOC8, a programming framework for exploring location data's multifaceted representations and uses. With LOC8, developers can construct complex queries by combining basic queries and additional contextual information.
