Abstract: A position of a mobile communication terminal in an environment where the terminal cannot communicate with a GPS is defined more narrowly than a sector area of a base station in which the mobile communication terminal is located so that the position of the mobile communication terminal can be estimated more accurately. Even if a mobile communication terminal is in an environment where the terminal cannot communicate with a GPS, the latitude and longitude of the center of a sector of the wireless base station in which the mobile communication terminal is located is obtained according to a predetermined calculation by a base station database device, and the obtained latitude and longitude is sent back as an estimated latitude and longitude of the mobile communication terminal to the mobile communication terminal via the wireless base station.
