Tagin geocaching game

by sara Nasr for Komodo OpenLab Inc.

Tagin is a location tagging engine that may be used to guide blind people in indoor areas. It works based on recorded WiFi fingerprinting data. The big challenge is how to keep data updated. Tagin geocaching game allows finding of hidden objects inside the buildings using Android phones. If a lot of people use the game, the result will lead to an updated fingerprinting of WiFi signals for the building. People will enjoy playing the game while updating WiFi fingerprinting data in the background.
