In this paper we apply a classification method to learn geographic regions using Location Based Services (LBS) in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). We assume that the information in Local Network (cellular network) can be freely exchanged with Global IP Network (IMS) and the information can be gathered in a data base. LBS in the IMS also provide location information for the data sets. Statistic classification methods are applied to the data sets in the data base. Depending on the information provided by the users, they are divided into different user groups (event classes) using Type Filters (TF). Then discriminant analysis is applied to the position information offered by LBS in IMS to determine the geographic regions of the different classes. The learned geographic regions can be used to inform the users in this region or other regions over IMS. This kind of service can be used for any location-based events.
