Location Based Services (LBS) expert witness candidates typically possess backgrounds in software engineering, network communications, and/or have specialized knowledge in GPS or GIS. Location based services use real-time geo-data from a cell phone (or other mobile device) to disseminate information. Location based services use GPS technology to track a device location. Some examples of how businesses and consumers utilize location-based services include:
Often, matters requiring location-based services expert witness work involve patent infringement litigation. Expert witness services by a location-based services expert witness could include an expert report, expert opinion, and/or trial testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may require a testifying expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients often seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
While many experts have location-based services expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the technology and evidence.
