How to create a killer location based mobile application

Location-based services are more than just a trend, they are a set of tools that can help you create personalized, immediate, user-centric applications for your users. Of course, there's more than just getting a latitude & longitude - you need a rich data set to provide information about the user's surroundings. Many developers have tried methods such as scraping, buying lists or using student interns to input data - but there is a better way.
