CUBICASA HELPS TO ENABLE INDOORATLAS DEVELOPERS BY SUPPLYING FLOOR PLANS
Collaboration Allows Developers to Acquire Floor Plans to Easily Create Indoor Positioning Applications
San Francisco, CA, September 21, 2015 – IndoorAtlas, the global leader in indoor positioning, and CubiCasa, a rising star in the 2D and 3D floor plan industry, today announced a collaboration to enable software developers to create indoor positioning applications through IndoorAtlas’s patented technology and CubiCasa’s innovative floor plan delivery.
IndoorAtlas’s unique technology utilizes a compass in smartphones to detect anomalies in the earth’s magnetic field, pinpointing locations with an accuracy of 3-6 feet without any additional infrastructure limitations such as beacons or routers. Comparatively, CubiCasa’s unique technology can turn any type of a source file, even a hand drawn image, into a usable floor plan file. Each property is geo-located on a map.
“We see CubiCasa’s floor plan service removing a big threshold from our developers to get started,” said Janne Haverinen, CEO and Founder of Indoor Atlas. “Access to floor plans is not always easy, and having a partner create floor plans on demand for our developers is adding great value.”
Through partnership with CubiCasa, IndoorAtlas developers now have the option to utilize existing CubiCasa floor plans, or create their own custom versions with the simple push of a button.
“Every IndoorAtlas application requires a floor plan, which is an essential part of any indoor positioning application. Often however, this is not always available for the developer, said Harri Pesola, CEO of CubiCasa. “We are thrilled to be able to assist indoor positioning application developers with our proven technology and service.”
Roll-out of the new partnership will launch in IndoorAtlas’ developer website in late 2015.
