3D indoor maps allow users to quickly get acquainted with the venue as they pan, zoom, and rotate the interactive display. As the map moves, so do dynamic elements such as text labels. Accessibility Mode provides a seamless indoor navigation experience for all visitors by prioritizing paths that use ramps and elevators over those with stairs.
Showcase important information regarding museum activities or events front-and-centre on your Digital Directory display. Not only can you edit building maps with the Mappedin CMS, but you also have the ability to create content and schedule it to display for specified periods of time.
Mappedin Smart Search provides users with a flexible navigation for museums. Customize this experience and allow visitors to search by time period, artist, museum exhibitions, and more. As users type, predictive results appear, minimizing the number of keystrokes needed to find a location.

The Responsive Web App provides enhanced indoor navigation tools for all visitors, regardless of device. Top locations highlight the most popular destinations at your venue and features such as smart search, mobile pass, and blue dot wayfinding make it easy for visitors to plan their routes.
Mappedin’s web solution has been optimized for both desktop and mobile users and offers accurate turn-by-turn directions. Enable indoor positioning or simply enter a start and end location to receive tailored directions that take factors like accessibility into account.
Indoor positioning systems can elevate your indoor wayfinding experience. Along with allowing visitors to detect their real position on the map, your venue can enable a more interactive experience by sending push notifications with relevant information as users approach certain displays or exhibits.
Mappedin's solutions are designed to provide a consistent and seamless experience across devices. Visitors can expect the same look, feel, and function between our web and directory solutions as they are searching for a specific piece of art or museum collection.

Digital maps and indoor wayfinding make it easy for visitors to navigate large, complex buildings. An accurate venue map is also the foundation for a variety of other experiences, including blue dot navigation and proximity messaging.
When creating a digital map for your museum or art gallery, it’s important to find a reliable indoor mapping provider that has experience with mapping spaces of different sizes. While some people may choose to build their own map, the complexity of creating an indoor map can be daunting and incorporating various other technologies can be nearly impossible.
Once you’ve decided on a provider, you will need to prepare the details to share with your vendor. For a gallery or museum venue, you will need to find the building layout and floor plans so that the provider can upload the blueprints of your space. With all the information in place, indoor mapping solutions can render the static 2D maps into digital 3D maps. You will also need to gather location data such as exhibits, collections, time periods, and any other relevant and categorical information.
Once your indoor map is rendered, you can also customize the design and features. Determine the wayfinding platform that is right for your venue, whether a mobile navigation app, a web solution, or Digital Directory. Add your branding colours to the map for a consistent feel across platforms.
Indoor navigation tools improve the overall user experience for visitors to your venue. Users can access a digital, interactive map of your museum or art gallery along with accurate directions to navigate from point A to B and ensure they don't miss a single exhibit in their museum visits.
Indoor mapping technology in museums works similar to other industries. 2D maps are converted into digital 3D maps. Regardless of device, users can pan, zoom, and rotate the map or use interactive features such as Smart Search, Mobile Pass, category listings, and more.
