After recording enough paths and the mapping analytics (under “Draft map”) are all green, it’s time to generate signal maps for online positioning. If the analytics are not green, it’s adviced to fix the mapping issues first as otherwise you’ll likely experience suboptimal positioning performance.
Before generating a map and doing extensive on-site positioning testing or reporting issues to IndoorAtlas, make sure that most analytics overlays are on “green” first.
You can generate map either in MapCreator application:
Or by navigating to the floor plan and clicking Generate new map -> Generate now -> Start.
Note that with IndoorAtlas you can test live positioning right away after mapping.
Map generation typically completes within a few minutes. Rarely, for very large mapped areas (e.g. a large airport terminal) and when the load on the Indoor Atlas map generation cluster is high, generation may take up to half an hour. You can monitor the progress of your map generation job in app.indooratlas.com.
