COVID-19 restrictions affect all areas of life, among them the way and amount of people who can move around in an indoor environment. This project aims to analyse how ArcGIS Indoors can be used with location awareness methods to elaborate and develop space management tools in order to reopen the workspace at university. For this, Wi-Fi fingerprints of users were generated and sent to an ArcGIS Indoor Information Model (AIIM). An App was developed to show the user’s location generated through a kNN matching algorithm. The applied methodology succeeds to differentiate locations within a room, but has difficulties to locate the user between rooms that are directly above of each other.COVID-19 restrictions affect all areas of life, among them the way and amount of people who can move around in an indoor environment.
