Many times, when a user is in a building and not aware of layout of the building, it becomes very difficult for the user to know in which part of the building the user is currently standing. While Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)/cellular systems offer various methods for determining the position of a wireless device of a user (often referred to as a user equipment (UE), the resulting positioning coordinates (e.g., Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates) are of not of much use to the user. Presented herein are techniques through which a UE can be provided a user-friendly visual indication of the current location of the UE inside an unfamiliar building, layout, or other geographical area.
