Abstract: 80% of the daily information is relative to location. Location-Based Service (LBS), as a technique providing location based information, bloomed in these decades and becomes a daily experience for the public in terms of search, maps, navigation, tracking, etc. It is now widely used in the outdoors, but seldom for indoors, which strongly contrasts with consumers' expectation for functionality anywhere anytime and the fact that up to 80% consumers' activities are taken place indoors. This paper describes the recent research on indoor location methods and mechanisms, as well as the latest technologies of indoor mapping. Experiments with were carried out, and the results were analyzed and compared comprehensively. Finally, outlooks of improvement for each approach were advanced.
