Crowdsourced WiFi database and benchmark software for indoor positioning

Lohan, Elena Simona; Torres-Sospedra, Joaquin; Richter, Philipp; Leppäkoski, Helena; Huerta, Joaquin; Cramariuc, Andrei

This dataset contains two Wi-Fi databases (one for training and one for test/estimation purposes in indoor positioning applications), collected in a crowdsourced mode (i.e., via 21 different devices and different users), together with a benchmarking utility software (in Matlab and Python) to illustrate various algorithms of indoor positioning based solely on WiFi information (MAC addresses and RSS values). 

The data was collected in a 4-floor university building in Tampere, Finland,  during Jan-Aug 2017 and it comprises 687 training fingerprints and 3951 test or estimation fingerprints.

The dataset and/or the associated software are to be cited as follows:
