In this article, we describe issues related to the development of intelligent and human-centered LBS for indoor environments. We focus on the navigation service. Navigation is probably the most challenging LBS since it involves relatively complex algorithms and many cognitive processes (e.g., combining known paths for reaching unknown destinations, minimizing path length). With the proposed system, we try to incorporate intelligence to navigation services by enriching them with the semantics of users and navigation spaces. Such semantic information is represented and reasoned using state-of-the-art semantic Web technologies (Berners-Lee, Hendler, & Lassila, 2001).
