Location-based Technologies and Privacy

The word bibliography displayed on a TVThis is part 2 of a bibliography of topics to review in depth. I took my main interests and narrowed them down to 3 specific applications of privacy theory. This one which is focused on the intersection of Location-base issues and privacy.

This list is incomplete due to me starting the bibliography late. It would benefit by searching references of these documents as well as evaluatingĀ sources that cite them.

The topics are not very closely attached to library science topics.
