Educational Facilities

   Educational campuses are evolving entities; their growth can be complex -- buying the available office space next door, adding a new wing to a seventy year old building, or simply having to build vertically due to space restrictions.
   Even under the best circumstances these facilities may be confusing and the campus can can become a dizzying maze of corridors, elevators, and even restricted areas.
   Now, PointsMap introduces a solution to that problem. Help your visitors, your students and faculty to easily find their way through your facility.

How it Works

Chattanooga State, a city college, utilizes the PointsMap App's internal navigation feature to help students and visitors navigate the campus's many buildings. With QR codes posted throughout the facility, app users can easily locate exactly where they are inside a building, find nearby Points of Interest and easily navigate from any point to any other point inside using their smart phone.
     You can use the Chatt State App Simulator to try Internal Wayfinding.
Normally, a user would SCAN a QR Code sign like the one here to show them exactly where they are in the building and to begin wayfinding. Because we are using the Simulator, we will manually pick a point from the map to begin wayfinding.
     Follow these steps using the simulator:
• Click on INSIDE MAPS
• Tap the Map Icon for the 1st floor
• On the bottom of the map, select entrances on the icon slider
• Zoom into the map and click any entrance
• Click GET DIRECTIONS FROM HERE
Choose Your Destination by selecting from a list. You can select a category, like "Office" or "Entrances" to narrow the list. You can also use type your destination in the search box to find it.
• Click "Filter by Category" and select Offices
• Pick a destination from the list
 Follow the Path 
• If you want the map to auto-rotate, then choose Yes
• Click the Green NEXT button to step though the Turn by Turn Directions
     Zoom in and out of the map to see the segments highlighted one step at a time as you click through the directions. You can also click on any of the ICONS for points you are passing to see the name of that point.
     Follow these Turn by Turn Instructions and the Highlighted Path as the PointsMap App guides you to your destination,
Thats all there is to it!

Where Am I and Guide Me Codes

QR Codes can be used to help your user find out exactly "where they are" inside the building
‚Äčand they can create a path from where they are to "commonly used" pre-set locations inside the building.
   Signs can be created using QR Codes that when scanned with the PointsMap App will open the inside map and highlight exactly where they are inside the building.
   Signs can be used at entrances, destinations, elevators, stairways and even outside of restrooms. Your users will never be lost again!
   Guide Me QR Codes are "One Step" Codes that offer a customer a preset path from where they are to commonly used, popular destinations.
   They simply scan the Guide Me Code for the proper destination and in One Step, the path is created and the first segment and walking instruction appears.
   Your user can select from multiple floors inside their building and can pan and zoom the map. They can choose from "categories" of points and tap the points on the map to find out details about them.    These details of a point can include photos, descriptions and even links to videos and PDF's about the point. Every point on the inside maps can function like a "mini website".

Turn by Turn Directions

   Your PointsMap App Smart Phone Users will get Friendly and easy to follow  Step by Step and Turn by Turn Directions, highlighting their walking path Segment by Segment, instructing them which way to turn and even what they will pass on their left or right as they walk the Path.
   As they tap the Green Arrow the next segment of the walking path will be highlighted and the next instruction will be presented.

   It's Just That Easy! They can even plan ahead before they leave home by using their Desktop or Laptop Computer and find out where to park and which entrance is the best and closest to their destination.
