This paper describes the generalization of a method for the estimation of the reliability of the positioning information provided by consumer-grade devices exploiting the Global Positioning System (GPS) and the other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) in a wide range of situations and environments. Principles are introduced, and a description of the implementation is detailed. Data collection and analysis necessary for the environmental characterization are reported. The algorithm was validated with some test carried out in different conditions.
