Today we celebrate more than 1B unique WiFi access points (APs) in our database!
CPS is still the largest available WiFi database: Wikipedia WiFi Positioning
We started to collect WiFi APs in small scale already in 2009 when we started our company, but did not offer our popular WiFi location service until 2012.
With 1B WiFi APs and 26B positions, it does not just give a great positioning service, there are lots of other interesting data that can be derived.
How many APs change SSIDs? Answer: About 7%
How many APs are mobile APs, like trains, buses, iPhones, Androids, …? Answer: About 10% and growing
