    In this diploma thesis an example of the indoor positioning system using NFC technology is presented. The indoor signal of satellites, such as GPS, is not visible to the navigational devices, so the positioning there is not possible. The thesis covers the development of several applications including Android application for smartphones. The smartphone user reads ID from NFC label and gets his current position and the list of all possible destinations from the server. User can then select one destination and can receive the shortest path from the current position to the destination from the server. Mobile application navigates him between NFC labels on this shortest path until the destination is reached. The thesis also covers some mathematical and physical problems connected with the topic and possible solutions. In the last chapter the statistical analysis that can help find strong magnetic field anomalies is presented.
