Building space accounts for one of the largest operational costs for companies. While space management has traditionally been done based on human observations, technology solutions are increasingly been considered. In this paper, we consider advanced sensing systems that provide location data at a certain spatio-Temporal granularity. Location data analytics is then considered to realize two space management applications: (i) space utilization, and (ii) workspace recommendation. Towards this end, location data is processed to determine potential workspaces. The processed historic location data is used to compute defined metrics that characterize space utilization. Filtering of real-Time location data is presented to recommend workspaces that may be potentially unoccupied and present to a user. Using datasets from an experimental office testbed, we evaluate the proposed sensing and analytics solution.
