Claim of US Patent No. 10,171,966

1. A method for deploying a positioning map of an area, the method executed in a processor of a server computing device and comprising:generating, using the processor, a distribution of positioning data points based at least in part on a first set of fingerprint data, the positioning data points calibrated in accordance with respective positions within the area;
receiving, at the memory, a second set of fingerprint data;
processing, using the processor, the second set of fingerprint data and the positioning data points to generate an updated distribution of positioning data points; and
when the updated distribution exceeds a threshold density of positioning data points, deploying the updated distribution as the positioning map of the area.
