Maps Overview
The interactive maps in our rich media applications enable visitors to easily find buildings, facilities, areas of interest and more by either browsing around the map itself, using a sortable index, or searching by keyword. Visitors can turn on layers that highlight specific locations, food services, bus stops, walking paths, handicap accessible entrances to buildings, and more. Visitors can also get step-by-step walking directions from one building to another or map out a digital self-guided tour around a location including preferences like walking vs. driving or handicap accessible paths only. Directions and self-guided tours are also available on mobile devices.
GPS Wayfinding/Directions
GPS-enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets enhance an on-location experience even further. Visitors can locate themselves on the mobile map with a touch of a button and then get directions to any other location on the map. As they are walking around a location, GPS Proximity Content Alerts prompt them to learn even more about the things they are physically near using their mobile devices. Additionally, visitors can bookmark places, things and people as they encounter them while on location and make personal notes about each. Bookmarks and notes can be referenced later as visitors reflect on their experiences.
Map Navigation
Users can control the map (scroll and zoom) in a variety of ways depending on whether they're looking at the map in a browser or on a mobile device. In a typical browser experience, users can click and drag the map around or use the autoscrolling as their mouse comes near an edge. They can also use the scoll wheel to zoom in and out. Additionally, the mini-map allows users to drag the viewable window around and/or zoom using a slider bar. On mobile devices, the map can dragged using a finger or zoomed in/out using the pinching motion. The mini-map is also available on mobile devices.
Base Map Artwork
Organizations can use any type of map artwork as the base map — high resolution rendered maps, aerial photo map, hand-drawn maps, and more — on which they can plot their buildings and facilities, areas of interest, walking and biking paths around location, and more. Organizations can also include and interconnect several maps to accommodate regional maps, multiple locations/facilities, and even multiple floor plans.
Any phyical location on the map can be represented by a polygon outline or a single point. Buildings can be subdivided into facilities and/or departments. Buildings, facilities and department can independently contain text, imagery, audio/video media, commentary, and links to related items inside and outside the application.
A map may contain an infinite number of layers. Layers may highlight objects already on a base map or display new information over existing map items. The map can be customized to change location and/or zoom level to show a full view of all of the items on a given layer. Examples include wheelchair ramps & entrances, food services, and parking lots.
Topics represent groupings of locations bound together by a common theme. One example is "Sports & Athletics" which pulls together all of the sports complexes, commentary and other media assets about sports, and hyperlinks to the Athletics Department's website into one content window for easy refence.
