Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR GENERATING AND POSITIONING DESCRIPTIVE LOCATION PROMPT INFORMATION
Abstract:
Disclosed are a method and apparatus for generating and positioning descriptive location prompt information. The method for generating descriptive location prompt information comprises: positioning a location point in an electronic map where a current terminal is located (101); determining a first direction toward which the current terminal faces (102); searching for one or more navigation objects contained within a preset range on the basis of street view data (103); and in combination with the first direction toward which the current terminal faces and the one or more navigation objects, generating the descriptive location prompt information (104). The generated descriptive location prompt information offers a simple and intuitional positioning-related description to a user, greatly improving the practicability of positioning based services, acquiring the current location rapidly, avoiding unceasing positioning by the user, and reducing the consumption of system resources and network resources.
