Bring the blue dot indoors
ArcGIS IPS is an indoor positioning system that allows you to locate yourself and others inside a building in real time. Similar to GPS, it puts a blue dot on indoor maps and uses location services to help you navigate to any point of interest or destination. Real-time indoor navigation, location sharing, and location tracking empower customers, visitors, and contractors. Indoor data collection provides a smooth workflow for mobile workers and analytics can help your organization increase efficiency and improve customer service.

What indoor positioning can do for you
All images on the ArcGIS IPS product pages are examples designed to show indoor positioning integrated into a custom-built app. ArcGIS IPS provides the indoor blue dot that can be shown on an indoor map using ArcGIS Indoors, ArcGIS Field Maps, or an app created with ArcGIS Maps SDKs for native apps.
How it works
Enable ArcGIS IPS in your Esri-powered app
Use ArcGIS IPS within ArcGIS Indoors, ArcGIS Field Maps, or your custom-built app powered by ArcGIS Maps SDKs for native apps.
Unlock the full value of your indoor GIS
Activate the blue dot in your facility to enable live indoor positioning, navigation, location tracking, and indoor data collection.

ArcGIS IPS in the Esri environment
You can unlock ArcGIS IPS in ArcGIS Indoors, an indoor mapping system for smart building management; use it in ArcGIS Field Maps, the all-in-one app to streamline critical field workflows; or access it via ArcGIS Maps SDKs for native apps to power your cutting-edge, custom-built indoor positioning app.
ArcGIS IPS comes with ArcGIS IPS Setup, a mobile app that allows you to collect radio signals from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons or Wi-Fi signals inside your buildings to enable the indoor positioning system. It can make use of an existing or new beacon or Wi-Fi infrastructure and is vendor agnostic. ArcGIS IPS geoprocessing tools are also included to set up and author your indoor positioning environment in ArcGIS Pro.
ArcGIS IPS integrators
ArcGIS IPS is available for users of ArcGIS Indoors, ArcGIS Field Maps, and ArcGIS Maps SDKs for native apps, which enable the indoor positioning capability in custom-built apps. ArcGIS IPS comes with the mobile ArcGIS IPS Setup app and ArcGIS geoprocessing tools for ArcGIS Pro.
