Hey Product Hunt! Super excited to share Mapwize’s online platform -- we’ve been working on it for the past 6 months. We’ve designed Mapwize Studio so that creating an indoor map would no longer be a hassle. We’ve made it easy to import floor plans, draw points of interest and create directions. No more hard coding to implement SDKs. Also, mobile native SDKs are available for both iOS and Android platforms. Moreover, a Web SDK based on JavaScript also allows you to embed Mapwize in your Web applications. We would love to hear you thoughts, please let us know if there’s any way we can make it better for you!

@mederic : I like the idea, here and am playing around with it now. A feedback note, I was asked for the building address when creating the project, but when I hit "Next" to bring up the map, it didn't automatically zoom to the address I entered on the previous screen - not sure if this was considered, but it certainly would be nice! I'm gonna keep playing around with it...
@mederic @beckerjs Hey Jerry! Thanks for your feedback. This improvement is coming real soon, really glad you appreciate our product though! 🔥

Hey, I'm Alex designer @ Mapwize! Many thanks for your review, wait for it, it's an upcoming feature ;)

Mapwize has put a lot of care in the user experience of their product. That did not only result in an amazing mobile app, but also in a very easy to user admin interface to set up your own maps. I love the accessibility features that make it super useful for people in wheelchairs too. Good job! And as a developer, Mapwize offers an SDK and all support required to integrate indoor maps in your own apps. I recommend Mapwize to users, building owners and app developers.

Pros:

Really user friendly to set up and great UX of the app

Cons:

Haven't found any cons yet

I used this product as part of a mobile application project that aimed to guide employees of a large company inside their premises.

The integration was very simple and the administration interface allowed us to add new buildings very simply.

In summary: it's simple, effective and well done!

Long live Mapwize!

Pros:

A simple way to implement indoor maps in a Mobile App

Cons:

Why should i have cons ?

We have been working with Mapwize at Web Summit for our in-app mapping and indoor location solutions with great success over 2017 and will continue to do so this year.

Their product and experienced staff fit well with our needs and scales well across all our global events (~5k to ~60k attendees).

A great product and super nice team – glad to see it getting deserved recognition in PH.

Pros:

Solid product that works at scale and knowledgeable team behind it.

Cons:

None
