Markus and Steffen presenting their work on indoor localization.

Needed/missing information in OSM for this:

  • detailed stair model for matching barometric sensor data
  • floor heights (height information on indoor=level, but rarely used)
  • wall materials: in particular for metal as it interferes with radio signals, such as fire protection doors
    • we currently can't model into which direction a hinged fire door would be moved in a default open state
  • escalator and moving walkways speed - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:conveying - duration tag
  • elevator entrances - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposal:Elevator_dimensions
  • intermediate floors/fractional levels

Stairs Modeling Proposal

Level topology

Implicit walls on indoor=corridor

Discussion based on https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/indoor/2024-February/000012.html by Volker and Antoine's reply https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/indoor/2024-March/000014.html.

Suggested approach:

  • indoor=corridor has no implicit walls
  • we fix TU Dresden (and other affected buildings) by using indoor=room + room=corridor instead
  • add explicit outer walls where needed (indoor=wall)
