While LBS has developed more than ten years in China, it never reached a large-scale development like Foursquare(an APP for LBS) in USA. This paper collects data of LBS in 2001~2012 from CNKI and the Web of Science, then compares the high-frequency keywords, research directions and research hotspots at home and abroad. By comparing the current situation and directions of the research, the author attempts to give some suggestions for LBS development of our country.
