ArcGIS IPS Use Cases

ArcGIS IPS is an indoor GIS that enables real-time positioning and localization inside buildings. It enables multiple use cases such as indoor navigation and wayfinding, location tracking, location sharing, location data collection, and analytical insights. Organizations can use ArcGIS IPS to help executives, employees, contractors, and building visitors become more aware of their indoor environment, independently find their way indoors, improve the indoor experience, get insights into workplace operations, and increase productivity and efficiencies.
