Association rules can detect the association pattern between POIs (point of interest) and serve the application of indoor location. In this paper, a new index, tuple-relation, is defined, which reflects the association strength between POI sets in indoor environment. This index considers the potential association information such as spatial and semantic information between indoor POI sets. On this basis, a new R-FP-growth (tuple-relation frequent pattern growth) algorithm for mining association

Experiments are performed, using real Wi-Fi positioning trajectory data from a shopping mall. Experimental results show that the tuple-relation calculation method based on cosine similarity has the best effect, with an accuracy of 87%, and 19% higher than that of the traditional FP-growth algorithm.
