Get in touch with Visioglobe
Our core business is focused on indoor digital mapping. More exactly, we map every large indoor space that allows an end-user to orient themselves but also to obtain information about the place where he is.
A. FRONT OFFICE OVERVIEW
Visioglobe technology makes it possible to visualize the maps thanks to the SDKs.
VisioMove Essential turnkey solution for iOS / Android
VisioWeb for websites, mobile and interactive kiosk
Our maps are then embedded by a third-party integrator or internal IT teams on mobile, web or kiosk.
As an overview Visioglobe SDK’s provide the following capabilities for the routing:
Point-to-point shortest and fastest path routing.
Navigation instructions support landmark-based routing as opposed to distance only (e.g “Turn left at this Shop” vs “Turn left in 30 meters”)
The routing network is made up of nodes and edges. The edges may contain modalities (like shuttle, bike) and be tagged (“steps”). By filtering certain attributes when requesting a route, it’s possible to obtain an accessible route.
The routing and navigation are computed offline (client-side) for native applications (iOS, Android) and for web.
B.BACK OFFICE OVERVIEW
VisioMapEditor is the back office provided by Visioglobe.
VisioMapEditor is a SaaS solution and accessible on the cloud.
Visioglobe created this software and its 100% owned by Visioglobe.
Each 6 weeks new features are added to the software based on the client’s requirements.
Once the maps are produced, they are accessible via the VisioMapEditor, enabling our client to easily make modifications.
Our clients can even create the maps from scratch with VisioMapEditor.
VisioMapEditor allows to edit visual data and look and feel like:
Creating, moving walls location, defining walls extrusion, styles, colour, shape, themes
Splitting, merging spaces
Edit service icons
Creating routing network with different modalities (for people with reduced mobility for example)
Using the VisioMapEditor “theme” feature, it is possible to have multiple themes (visual styles) for different maps in one click.
One of the best use case Visioglobe has in Hospital digital indoor mapping solution is in U.S.A. with local partner.
Hospitals are not easy places to find your way around. They can be scary and stressful for many people (patient as medical staff), making it confusing to find the x-ray department, a clinic, or visit a patient.
“Finding your way through the massive maze-like facilities of a major hospital or medical center can be stressful, frustrating and even result in late or missed appointments – a problem that costs hospitals over $150 Billion annually in the United States.
Moreover, even staff get lost, and constantly struggle to find their way efficiently. This has a real impact on productivity, in addition to the interruptions and time spent assisting patients and visitors get to their destinations.“ (http://www.connexient.com/enterprise-solution/roi) Connexient quote, Visioglobe partner in U.S.A using our mapping technology.
