Indoor positioning in the event Map 🧭
In-person events are back, and finding the right place to attend a session or meet an exhibitor can be a challenge.
We are a really excited to announce that we have added Indoor Positionning and Navigation to our Map feature thanks to IndoorAltas technology!
It is now possible to be geolocated on the map by displaying a blue dot indicating your position.
To allow the display of the blue dot, the venue requires to be equipped with beacons. Beacons are small devices that should be installed at several points in order to send signals to the smartphone.
When using indoor positioning with IndoorAtlas, it is now possible to use the blue dot as the routing starting point. Here are the steps to follow:
- On the map, select a booth you want to visit, then click on “Directions” to set the route.
- In the field “From”, select the option “Current location” to set your position as a starting point.
- Finally, click on “Route” to launch the way-finding.
The blue dot is moving along the path at the same time you’re walking! 🚶♂️
