The technology can even determine which floor a device is on, creating a full 3D experience.

Also available is the Radio Map Admin Tool, a web-based application for venue owners to manage collected indoor data as well as monitor and manage Bluetooth beacons that are used in indoor mapping. The tool helps venue owners visualize and manipulate collected radio data.
