Mobile location-based services (MLBS) refer to services around geographic location data. Mobile terminals use wireless communication networks (or satellite positioning systems) to obtain users’ geographic location coordinate information based on spatial databases and integrate with other information to provide users with required location-related services. The development of systems based on MLBS has significance and practical value. In this paper a visualization management information system for personnel in major events based on microservices, namely MEPMIS, is designed and implemented by using MLBS. The system consists of a server and a client app, and it has some functions including map search and query, personnel positioning and scheduling, location management, messaging, and location service. Managers of the events can quickly search and locate the staff on the specific area of the map in real-time, and make broadcasting messages to the staff, and manage the staff. The client app is developed on the Android system, by which staff users can send the positions information to the server timely. The client users can search fuzzily near their peers and list their locations, and also call near peers through sending messages or query the history record of staff locations. In the design of the system, several new proposed techniques, including visual annotation method for overlapping locations, correcting trajectory drift algorithm, microservices-based overall system architecture methodology and other new techniques, which are applied to the implementation of the system. Also, HTML5, JQuery, MLBS APIs (Application Program Interfaces) related programming techniques have been used and combined with loading Ajax asynchronously and Json data encapsulation, map marker optimization techniques, that can improve the positioning accuracy and the performance of the system. The developed system with practical functions can enhance the efficiencies of the organization and management of major events.
