All works good but it does not work in indoor places, when I am inside a building where GPS/Network reception is not good. To resolve this issue, is there a way we can use Bluetooth beacons (I have some SitckNFind beacons) to determine location? Do you have any reference/sample implementation where Wikitude is integrated with Bluetooth beacons to implement GEO location based AR?
Any pointer or idea would be really appreciated!

Indoor localization is often a topic in AR usecases.
I like to sum up the possible approaches I figured out so far
* Check out existing WiFi or bluetooth beacon approaches (infsoft.de, indoo.rs, ...). You may then struggle around with device calibration and changing accuracy, depending on the number of persons in the room + significant set-up/calibration costs
* Let user tell the system where he/she is located by installing e.g. QR codes in the area and set lat/lon according those predefined spots. That way you can't implement navigation, but for routing it may be sufficient
* Some companies (e.g. InsiderNavigation) are already playing around with an image recognition approach, which analyses the room instead of WiFi/blutooth signals
Wikitude SDK is ready for all of them, just tell the SDK lat/lon/alt from your native iOS/Android environment.
