TechTalk: What is a Custom Map?

If your location or venue is classified as “Private” you most likely just have a location on Google Maps or an older satellite image from a very high level altitude.

You will need a custom map to get a much more accurate and more detailed map. With a custom map you get navigation within your venue or location without creating a custom map.

Custom Maps are useful for providing way finding directions for indoor venues, outdoor venues or even places such as tourist attractions, shopping malls, parklands, schools and universities.

The custom map and wayfinding solution can also be used for temporary events and outdoor venues to show people their routes to take and walking directions from one venue / point of interest to another. Also a great example is for airports, train stations and sporting venues to get your customers or visitors straight to their seats.
