Introduction Acquiring context information is essential in achieving context-aware systems and applications. Since location is the most important context, many works have tried to identify the user’s location [11,21,22,36,37]. By acquiring a user’s location periodically, the system can provideman navigation and specify user’s significant location and “hub of activity” [13,32]. Furthermore, by acquiring the location of multiple users, the system can identify friends in the neighborhood or how crowded a specific location is [1].
