Simplest export of indoor location positions data

Hi there!

I’m looking for a quick/easy solution to tracing my position within an Estimote beacon-configured room. Can the default indoor location app export the positions in time (e.g., JSON, csv) somehow? or do I have to develop my own iOS app for that? If anyone has code examples or directions, I’d be eternally grateful :smiley:

Thanks a lot!


Hi Iprisan,

While Indoor Location SDK allows you to track someone’s position in real time, currently it does not enable exporting positions with timestamps. This is something you would need to build yourself with the SDK.


Does the SDK or Estimote app allow time stamp logging assoicate with real-time position tracking in either FIT or GPS format? I would like to pair the data up with an action camera. To be able to track and determine where a picture was taken within a building. Any suggestion?

Not out-of-the-box. You could time-stamp the position updates yourself, and you’d also need to translate from (x,y) coordinates of the Indoor Location into (lat, long).

Apple has an example on how to do that from (lat, long) to (x,y), i.e., the other way around, but with a little bit of tweaking you should be able to re-use some of that code:

I was wondering if you ever found a solution for this. I have exactly the same concern. I’m not a programmer, so something already constructed would be very beneficial. Did you have any luck resolving this? Thanks in advance.
