What have we been up to in 2022? This quarter, Mappedin launched a new solution for First Responders. We also continue to support new and exciting industries, including the release of enhanced multi-building navigation for campus style venues. Read on to learn more.  

Mappedin Update - Q1 2022 

This blog will focus on our work over the past quarter as we launched a new product for public safety, released an improved multi-building experience, and more. Contact us today to learn more.

NEW! Mappedin Response 

This quarter we launched our new Mappedin Response product. This solution automatically digitizes paper-based floor-plans, allowing First Responder teams to maintain and access the most up-to-date version of every building floor-plan within their response area. This new product is being piloted across three Canadian cities, enabling Fire Departments to create and maintain pre-plans on-the-go from any tablet or PC.

Using Mappedin Response, First Responders can: 

  • Create: Automatically digitize raster floor-plans (i.e. photos). DXF, PNG and JPEG formats are accepted.

  • Annotate: Once the floor-plans are digitized, add and edit symbols and annotations. NFPA and custom symbols are supported.

  • Respond: Access up-to-date pre-plans to gain better spatial and situational awareness of a building in advance of arriving at an emergency call.

Multi-Building and Campus Map Enhancements

This quarter, we’ve made improvements to campus style maps and the multi-building wayfinding experience. Mappedin has the ability to not only route users within buildings, but between them using the most efficient path. Along with being a more intuitive navigation experience for visitors, we’ve also ensured that despite the increase in map data, our solution continues to be highly performant. 

We’re Hiring! 

Mappedin is hiring across several teams and we’re looking for passionate and motivated individuals to join us!
