Abstract: The various technologies presented herein relate to determining a location of an individual, or an object, when a GPS may be unavailable/occluded. Readings from a plurality of sensors on a mobile device can be generating a plurality of data (e.g., speed, motion, temperature, biometric, etc.) which can be combined to generate a probability of a user of the mobile device being at a particular location, or not. Sensor readings can be weighted to enable sensors having a large effect on a degree of confidence of the probability of the user being determined to be at a location being given priority (e.g., battery priority) versus those sensors which have lesser effect on the degree of confidence. With the user determined to be at a location, information, a notification, an instruction, etc., can be presented to the user, via the mobile device.
