Location-based services (LBS) depends on data gathered from mobile and ubiquitous devices and use to provide services like getting the appropriate location of a mobile user presented in physical and logical maps. The main operations of location management in LBS are updating and searching or paging. Some studies to improve these were presented by using optimal sequential paging and location area schemes. Different LBS means variety of methods on accessing data that leads to complexity of providing services. In this paper, we use an approach of hierarchical structured agents for the method of locating a mobile object in a location-based service. This study focuses on location management by using agents. Agents were used for accessing the distributed databases on LBS. It also introduces a hierarchical searching method that uses a nearest neighbor technique for fast searching. The result of using the technique shows an improved searching method in the location management.
