Best Practices To Measure Location Accuracy and Key Performance Metrics

Geo-positioning is focused on understanding where a connected or mobile device is at a certain point in time. As you evaluate various positioning methods, make sure that you have a solid understanding of how to measure and compare the location reported, and how to understand reported error estimates.

When measuring location accuracy, there are some important steps to follow to ensure you have the necessary data. In this white paper we cover:

  • How to evaluate location accuracy
  • How to measure error in location
  • How to compare location methods
  • How to differentiate positioning performance metrics
  • How to use the horizontal estimate of positioning error
