Think GPS is cool? IPS will blow your mind

Think GPS is cool? IPS will blow your mind | Geography Education |
For all of its awesome applications, GPS has two fundamental flaws: It doesn't work indoors, and it can't really detect altitude. An Indoor Positioning System would fix that -- and introduce some seriously awesome applications.


Geolocation was listed as one of the important growth industries for the future (it also is a way to reassure students that the their are jobs for geography majors).  The IPS isn't quite here, but it's hard to imagine that is too far away.

This would be very helpful when traveling to large indoor tourist attractions. Especially if you are with a group of people in a large museum and you get spilt up, you can locate each other easier.
