Sometimes, managers of buildings such as hospitals, shopping centres or airports want to provide guidance and information to their visitors through interactive maps.
However, they do not want to ask the user to download an app. To address this need, Situm’s new plugin allows offering interactive maps on desktop and mobile websites, totems or kiosks.
What can be done with Situm on a web app?
In a web application with integrated maps through Situm, the user will have different options for orientation and guidance inside the building:
- Consult the plans of the building, either in image or tile format, vector and interactive plans.
- Locate and obtain information about the building’s points of interest,(POIs) whether they are shops, restaurants, building facilities or other types of facilities.
- Visualize the route and get directions to different POIs.
- Share routes between devices via QR codes. For example, check the route to a store on a digital kiosk and transfer it to your mobile device, as you can see in the video below:
- Save the location where you have parked your car, also by simply scanning a QR code placed on the parking space you occupy. This way, you can save your location and be guided to it when you need to return.
How to create a web application with Situm
Embedding a map in your web app is as simple as copying and pasting the appropriate code.
<iframe id="map-viewer-iframe" style="width:100%; height:600px" src="https://map-viewer.situm.com/"> </iframe>
We have pasted it in this entry. Try exploring the map by clicking on the icons, switching between the different floors, calculating a route and zooming in to see all the details.
