Over 160 companies are in the report with analysis of leading applications.

The report provides profiles and case study analysis of products and services provided by leading companies such as American Movil, Apple, Brazil Telecom, Cobra Automotive, deCarta, Google, IBM, LocationLabs, NAVTEQ, Nokia, TCS, Telefonica, Qualcomm, Verizon, WaveMarket, and more. The report also considers the merits of location developers Placecast, Layar, Bloomberg, eBay, Junaio, Creativity Software, FourSquare, MECOMO, Thomson Reuters, WHERE, and more to determine usefulness in corporate and/or product strategy, marketing partnerships, and sales planning. Lead Analyst, Tina Whitfield, also identifies the top ten product categories and top five geographic markets for LBS applications.
