There are many ways indoor digitization can benefit buildings. Digital recording of interior spaces serves multiple customer requirements, such as easy orientation, efficient management of buildings, and connection of digitized processes and information with building structures, interior attributes and building facilities.
infsoft offers an innovative, easy way to capture even large, complex indoor environments. Using the infsoft Maps Editor, a location can be created with just a few clicks and can then be easily managed afterwards. Mapping a location is the first step in any indoor positioning project – and crucial for accessing the digital value of indoor spaces. It provides access to digital maps and to every layer of building information, allowing all indoor processes to be digitized.
Using the web-based Maps Editor, blue prints can be easily adapted to the outline plan of any external provider. It is possible to manage Points of Interests in different categories with various properties and to define and change information such as opening times and images at any time. Another built-in feature of the Maps Editor is the definition of path relationships for the navigation of users within the building levels. Defining landmark POIs for turn-by-turn navigation enables facilitating orientation for the building user and integrating prominent infrastructure waypoints in the map.
The integration of digital maps enables indoor navigation within a building. Seeing one’s position on the map, users can navigate to any chosen destination, following step-by-step directions on a virtual path.
Besides providing access to digital maps and indoor navigation, the capabilities of indoor digitization can be extended far beyond that: it lays the foundation for the use of indoor tracking, indoor analytics, and geo-based services.
3D navigation inside buildings can also be enabled, made possible by NavVis’ digital building technology. Using the NavVis M6 Indoor Mobile Mapping System with a multi-camera head, you can automatically capture point clouds, 360° immersive imagery, and sensor data at the speed of walking through a building. The system also captures Bluetooth beacons, Wi-Fi signals and magnetic field data.
The mapping system simplifies and accelerates the creation of building plans and the surveying of locations, which is necessary for any indoor positioning project. The digital floorplans can then be used within the infsoft Maps Editor. In addition, the map material in the Maps Editor can be enhanced by a direct 3D view to your building using NavVis IndoorViewer. Here, it is also possible to define and change POIs or path relationships, for example.
