To accurately show a users location on the map, you either need UWB indoor positioning or a lot of BLE Beacons. To accurately show user location with BLE Beacons, we use a triangulation algorithm that requires the user to be within 6 meters reach of minimum 3 beacons at anyone time.

For best results, position beacons in a grid formation with beacons spaced 2m apart” as shown below, or if this is not possible, in a way that covers the most relevant areas with minimum number of beacons. To enable trilateration, select “Show user location” Location Service when adding a floor to an indoor project.
