Mobile Application Implementing Location Based Services Framework with Google Cloud Platform Integration: SSRU Development Case

Shutchapol Chopvitayakun

Abstract—Finding a place in a new location where visitors have no experience and clueless about it. This seems like getting lost in a maze and there is no easy way to reach out destination. To solve this problem, Location Based Services (LBS) plays an important role in providing visitors with assistance, direction, guideline and other relevant information. With LBS, visitors will be given walking instructions to get to a desirable place correctly. Moreover, visitors are enabled to find out the best route to approach destination efficiently. Then, no one wastes time and gets lost. This work applied Location Based Services framework integrated with Google Maps Platform to develop a mobile application called SSRU Map, run on Android Operating System. This application provides a series of geolocation information and solution featured on the location of Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University (SSRU), Thailand. Each year, SSRU has thousand visitors come to this university with various purposes e.g. applicants for admission or seminar participants. SSRU geographical landscape is not a rectangular shape and it is not a grid layout either. That is why it is harder for visitors to locate a building they are looking for by themselves. This mobile application is devoted for the main campus of SSRU in Bangkok with its area around 2 square kilometers. Main features of this application cover all locations and routes of major and minor buildings on this campus. Besides navigation feature, it also provides each building information e.g. pictures of interior and exterior of each building, website information, and contact information. This application will serve thousand visitors every year while.
