  "abstract": "<p>The goal of these LPWAN datasets is to provide the global research community with a benchmark tool to evaluate fingerprint localization algorithms in large outdoor environments with various&nbsp;properties.&nbsp;An identical collection methodology was used for all datasets: during a period of three months, numerous devices which contain a GPS receiver periodically obtained new location data, which was sent to a local data server via a Sigfox or LoRaWAN message. Together with network information such as the receiving time of the message, base station IDs&#39; of all receiving base stations and the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) per base station, this location data was stored in one of the three LPWAN datasets:&nbsp;</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li><strong>lorawan_dataset_antwerp.csv</strong>\n\n\t<ul>\n\t\t<li>123 529 LoRaWAN messages, obtained in the city center of Antwerp, Belgium</li>\n\t</ul>\n\t</li>\n\t<li><strong>sigfox_dataset_antwerp.csv</strong>\n\t<ul>\n\t\t<li>14 378 Sigfox messages, obtained in the city center of Antwerp, Belgium</li>\n\t</ul>\n\t</li>\n\t<li><strong>sigfox_dataset_rural.csv</strong>\n\t<ul>\n\t\t<li>14 378 Sigfox messages, obtained in a rural area between&nbsp;Antwerp, Belgium and Ghent, Belgium</li>\n\t</ul>\n\t</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>The collection methodology of the datasets, and the first results of a basic fingerprinting implementation&nbsp;are documented in the following journal paper:</p>\n\n<p><a href=\"\"></a><br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
