How do I use Location Scanning API data?

Hi guys!!

 


I received location data using Location Scanning API.

Each packet consists of data for a different AP.
Each packet contains location data for the same client.
But, the location data of the client is all different.

 

 

Q1. What location data should I use in the above situation?
       Should I calculate with location data?

 

Q2. Location Scanning API V3(beta)
       There is no location data as shown in the picture below.

Is it because V3 is the beta version? The V3 need a different setup than V2?

Please, let me know what can I do.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Re: How do I use Location Scanning API data?

Q1.

you have a choice...

 

absolute: using latitude, longitude

 

...or...

 

relative: using x, y offsets from lower left of floorplan(s)

 

whether to use absolute or relative position really depends on your application

 

Q2.

 

assuming you have the required minimum firmware for V3, perhaps you need to have early beta access? simplest way to check is probably to just open a case and ask if that is why you see no location data for V3
