Here is a preview of new features and products to come. 

Mappedin Web Redesign

Web Redesign Screencap

We have been working hard on redesigning Mappedin Web, maintaining a clean design, optimizing location icon placement, and adding the right balance of ambient occlusion. We have also included some great new features:

Step-by-step Directions

Step-by-step directions were redesigned to give more context and information to users at each step of their journey. These new directions will include estimated travel time and clickable directions, so users can understand exactly what part of the journey they are at.  These redesign improvements can be expected in October 2023. 

Step by Steps Directions Screencaps

Multi-building Level Selector

Level selector for venues with multiple buildings will now show more building information.

Multi-modal Routes 

Show different modes of transportation (such as shuttles) that your visitors can locate around your venue. Multi-modal routes will account for various modes of transportation in total travel time in the step-by-step directions. 

Landmark Directions 

Give users better directions by utilizing landmarks. Landmarks give users better context and orientation to guide them to their destination.

Access-based Paths 

The Access-based Paths feature provides users who have specific access privileges with routes that are not publicly available. For example, users such as VIP ticket holders at events, travelers using swing gates at airports, or administration staff at schools. Routing options based on access are expected to be ready in October 2023. 

Connections Manager

Control the closure of connections such as elevators, escalators, and stairs. Close connections that are out-of-order or not accessible to the public. The pathing will adjust to these closures and suggest alternative routes to users. This feature will be ready for October 2023
