Recently, WiFi Positioning System (WPS) plays important role in ubiquitous applications. The main problem of WPS is how to collect WiFi Access Point(AP) locations because the most of the APs are usually installed on grass-root basis and their locations are not published.We use Locky.jp provided by Nagoya University Research Group as a WPS for our ubiquitous applications. However the precision of the AP location data in Locky.jp is not enough for our applications. To improve the precision of the AP location database, we are going to apply statistical and heuristic methods. In this paper, we described the overview of our heuristic approach and define the quality of AP observation logs and location data. We also evaluated the quality definition by simple simulations.
