Increasingly used in large-scale environments such as shopping centres, airports, hospitals, cruise ships … and many more, these applications are intended to help users plan their trips.
3 axes determine an indoor navigation application:
- Integrator * application orchestrator
- Geolocation (GPS, beacons, Led ou Wifi)
- Cartography * mapping
This assistance stands at actual surveying but also experiential level. This type of digital tool can indeed reduce a patient’s stress because they easily find their consulting room, a passenger’s because their boarding gate comes quickly into view…
The user’s experience (UX) partly occurs via a graphic interface (GUI) in order to add shape to the background. When one steps in ergonomic and information architecture to offer functionalities inspired by the user’s expectations and goals, the other will use design rules in relation to the client’s graphic charter in order to create a visually pleasing and coherent experience.
The specificity of cartography lies in its dual role of orchestrator and technological partner. Human interpretation is indeed paramount to the representation of spaces. The wilful simplification of buildings makes for faster assimilation of geographical location and provides a real help when journeying.
In this sense Visioglobe can pilot the creation of a navigation application in the same way as an integrator.
The evolution of VisioMove into VisioMove Essential is its most recent example. Offering a user’s experience integrating the best practices, this visualization SDK based on best practices over 10 years reduces hazardous integrations in order to always allow users to benefit from an intuitive tool.
