  • Patent number: 10993077
    Abstract: A method of identifying a current location, performed by a server having wireless communication with a terminal, includes receiving from the terminal, surrounding environment information input in natural language by a user; performing natural language processing on the surrounding environment information to extract place information about a reference place input by the user and positional relationship information about a positional relationship between the reference place and the user; searching a map database for the reference place corresponding to the place information; estimating a candidate region in which the user is likely to be located, based on the searched-for reference place and the positional relationship information; and determining the candidate region as the user's current location. Because the current location is identified based on the surrounding environment information input by the user, the user's current location can be identified more accurately.
