Esri launches indoor positioning system


Location intelligence company Esri has launched ArcGIS, an indoor positioning system.  The new product will enable organizations to add indoor location services across their facilities and campuses, according to the company.

“Indoor positioning systems solve the ‘last mile’ navigation challenge, bridging the gap between outdoor and indoor worlds,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president.

ArcGIS IPS enables real-time indoor location services. To implement the system, Bluetooth beacons, also known as iBeacons, are installed inside buildings, says Esri.
