Adding Wayfinding Paths

The wayfinding use case usually implies lots of hallways and intersections where people need help to find their destination.

Wayfinding paths are the equivalent of Google Maps and Roads.  They should be added by someone who has knowledge of the space and goal.

A good example is a hospital where you would want paths in pubic spaces, but not anywhere protected by a card reader.  It is normal that a paper map is exchanged to show what area’s are ‘in bound’ before the design is done.

The blue dot (what people would see) will have a strong affinity to a path, but if the location estimate gets 4 meters or so off the path it will detach and go into x,y mode.  In some use cases that is OK, but keep this in mind when you are designing for your use case.

This is a quick video showing how you add wayfinding paths.

 

We strongly advise you zoom the map and take a look for the following. The lines may look like they connect when scaled out, but closer analysis might show you they are not. This will cause problems so please keep a look for this.
