For everything you have done for me, I thank you. I am also grateful to Thorsten Hampel who agreed to review this thesis. Furthermore, I would like to thank Irene Roger who provided the somuch needed humor and entertainment in what could have otherwise been a somewhat stressful work environment. My dear col- leagues asmembers of our little doctoral group Bernd Eßmann, Frank Go¨tz, TomaszMistrzyk, and Simon Oberthu¨r for their constructive thoughts and ideas. And of course all members of PC2 who became wonderful colleagues in recent time. I am not able to mention all students who supported me during this thesis, but I want to name a few who helped me to realize this work. All members of the project group “Location- based Services” contributed their generous help in the experimental phase of this research, thanks a lot! Also thank you to Georg Birkenheuer, Bernd Eßmann, Frank Go¨tz, Wilke Hagel- weide, Ludger Lecke and Florian Pepping for proofreading parts of this dissertation and their support.
