According to, Apple is developing an indoor survey app that will...

"Enable indoor positioning within a venue using the Indoor Survey app. By dropping 'points' on a map within the Survey App, you indicate your position within the venue as you walk through. As you do so, the indoor Survey App measures the radio frequency (RF) signal data and combines it with an iPhone's sensor data. The end result is indoor positioning without the need to install special hardware."

I can see this being very useful for surveying sites that don't have current prints available. Does anyone else see this as a potentially viable tool?

Thanks for sharing BJ! This is quite interesting.

Rough data is better than no data at all, a crappy tool is still a tool and probably better than no tool at all, so I think yes.
