3D PLAN OF TOUR BUILDING

The 3D Wayfinder uses a 3D model of your building and renders it in real-time.

 With a 3D plan it is easier to:

 

►     understand where you are;
►     in what direction you are looking at;
►     and how to reach your destination.

 

Zoom in on the floor plan, turn and move in all directions. All the existing objects – like escalators, doors, elevators, trees, stairs etc. can be included on the plan. Therefore, it is easier to remember the route and understand where everything is located. Displayed floor plans can easily be switched. When showing routes between floors, the floor plans are switched automatically with smooth animation

YOU ARE HERE

The “you are here” spot is the place where the 3D Wayfinder application is displayed on a screen. The viewing direction at every spot changes the viewing angle of the application to match the viewing angle of the visitor. If you move the kiosk, you can also easily change the “you are here” spot. Changing the location does not disrupt the route displays because all routes are calculated on the fly.

To find your location, just click on the “you are here” button.

POINTS-OF-INTEREST

Points of Interest (POI) are various locations that are important for visitors, for example, shops, toilets, ATMs, exits, etc. A customized icon can be assigned to each POI that is displayed on the 3D plan and in the building directory menu. Each POI has a name, ID, icon, text and additional parameters. It is possible to add quick-buttons to the screen for frequently searched destinations.

 

SEARCHING AND GROUPING

All POIs are sorted by subject, alphabetical order and floors. Visitors can search the building directory for the locations by typing a keyword or phrase on the on-screen keyboard. The keyboard layout depends on the chosen language and closes automatically when not in use.

 

VISUALISATION OF ROUTES

After searching for or selecting a destination, the shortest route will be drawn in the 3D plan. Routes are calculated automatically or can be changed by the administrator. The route is displayed as an animated dotted line. If the destination is on a different floor, the route can be browsed by floor. The length of the route and estimated time of arrival can also be displayed. Visitors can choose alternative routes that are optimised for disabled people (without stairs) or to similar places (toilets, ATMs). Routes are drawn through navigation nodes, to which additional parameters can be added for more complex routes. For example, it is possible to create one-way routes through gates and other similar objects

 

SPEAK WITH VISITORS IN THEIR LANGUAGE

3D Wayfinder is multilingual. Locations can be translated into required languages and easily switched without reloading the wayfinding application.

CONTENT MANAGEMENT

Building managers and tenants can log in and manage all the information they are associated with.
Managers have and can give access to the following features:

       adding/changing POI’s
       defining keywords
       getting statistics
       placing advertisements

STATISTIQUES

SEE WHO IS VISITING YOUR BUILDING

For the management of large buildings it is important to get information about visitors and their needs. This is especially true in shopping malls where rental fees depend on visiting trends.
Statistics provide answers to questions like:

       What language do the visitors speak?
       Which kiosk spot is used the most?
       Which times are most popular?
       What are the sex and/or age of the visitor? (special software and hardware required)

​WHAT ARE VISITORS SEARCHING FOR?

Statistics provide an overview of the most common search terms. At the same time, all the keywords that cannot be matched with results are saved and presented. Thereby, you can see what your visitors like to find in your building.

NEW APPROCH TO ADVERTISING

CONTEXTUAL ADS

Contextual ads are displayed according to the chosen topic subject or typed-in search keyword – making the ad more targeted and useful for the visitor.

There are three types of ads:
 

       Banner ads that can be images, videos, animation etc

      Highlighted directory items with additional ad text
(similar to Google Sponsored Links)

       Small pop-up banners in the 3D plan.

AD PRICING

All ads can be priced according to the following parameters:

       time frame
       search keywords
       subject
       minimum fee

Clicking on an ad can guide a visitor to the advertised store or open a new window with an external website. This way advertisers can use the existing ad channels. 

 

GETTING MORE FROM ADS

3D Wayfinder is a very attractive channel for communicating with customers. When visitors are searching for something, targeted ads are more impactful. Visitors can be attracted by giving out coupons, offering special deals, providing additional information, etc

 

MANAGING PAYMENTS AND REVENUE SHARING

Managers can give tenants or other advertisers access to add or change the ads on their own. All billing and transfers are done automatically by payment with a major credit card: VISA, MasterCard, and American Express.

 

CUSTOMISATION AND CONNECTIVITY

On the administration page, you can choose a suitable design for your end-user application from a list of premade templates. You can also make your own template with HTML, CSS and JavaScript using the API.

PERMADE TEMPLATES
In the premade templates you can change the following elements:

       Logo
       Colours
       Font styles
       Icons

 

API (APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE)

The application data is easily accessible through a JSON API.
API allows you to perform following operations:

       POI’s – adding, changing and grouping;
       Managing ads – changing, adding and removing;
       Users – creating and managing users;
       Navigation nodes – customising routes – which parts of the building are accessible and by whom;
       Statistics – statistics about usage;
       Language – adding/removing languages and managing translations;

CONNECTING WITH SOCIAL NETWORKS

Many companies are using social networks to inform people about news, events, special offers etc. It is possible to integrate social networks with 3D Wayfinder using the API and templates..

 

3D MAP ON YOUR WEBSITE

The 3D Wayfinder application can be embedded into your website. It works with most common web browsers (Mozilla, IE, Safari etc.) in Windows or Mac. The Unity Web Player plug-in installation is required.

By embedding 3D maps in your website, visitors will have up-to-date information about the stores and offers. Generally, it attracts visitors with its interactivity and advertises your centre as an innovative and progressive place.

 

PLACE IT WHEREVER YOU LIKE

The 3D Wayfinder runs on Kiosk hardware or on regular PCs with Windows. Kiosks can be placed almost anywhere (indoor and outdoor). The best places are those with the most traffic, such as:

         Entrances;
         Atriums;
         Near the information desk;
         Near lifts, stairs and escalators.

There are different types of kiosks. Free-standing units with large touch screens (32”-46”) are most popular.
3D Wayfinder requires at least a medium-range graphics card to run smoothly.
