What is the proper size of a navigation marker?

The size a navigation marker should have depends on the distance from which it is scanned with the smartphone camera. If the scanning distance is short, the marker can be very small (few centimeters). The longer the distance gets, the bigger has to be the marker.
Floor markers are usually scanned from breast height. In order to get the route guidance indication displayed in a proper size on the smartphone, we recommend a floor marker size of about 15-20cm.
Wall markers placed for example on door labels can be small (about 2-3cm) since they are scanned from a short distance. If the wall markers have to be seen from a larger distance their size has to incearse with respect to the scanning distance.
