Abstract. The current state of location-based services provides spatial information delivery for mobile users based on position data taken from GPS sensors. However, sometimes the spatial information delivery service includes unwanted information. In particular, push-based or passive information delivery has a high probability that users receive unwanted information. We propose a new spatial information delivery to improve the integrity of spatial information delivery. We conducted an experiment using an Indoor Messaging System and an accelerometer, and concluded that our methodology can detect user behavior without accessing personal information and reduce the amount of spam information.
