    Pros: 

    A simple way to implement indoor maps in a Mobile App

    Cons: 

    Why should i have cons ?

    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: 

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

    Cons: 

    Haven't found any cons yet

    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.

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...

@lucypatell Hi Lucy, thanks for your feedback! Mapwize works with any Indoor Positioning System (IPS) including but not limited to: Beacons, Wi-Fi, Li-Fi, Ultrasounds, Earth’s Magnetic field, Sensor fusion. Additionally, Mapwize provides a unique framework designed to combine multiple IPSs and select the most accurate system at anytime. Also, this framework enables advanced filters to increase position accuracy based on building topology. This framework, called Indoor Positioning is available as an Open Source project under the MIT License. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hey guys, I met you in RISE in HK last year, I'm happy to see you here! Do you plan to come this year? I used the app during several events, and it's amazing, you did a great job. Do we have to draw the floor plans ourselves? Can we import it, in what format?

@sena491 Hey Sena, glad to see you here as well! :) We will definitely go back to RISE this year, it's a great event! Our CTO, @mathieugerard, will attend the show. Thanks a lot for your feedback, appreciate it. You can draw the plan by yourself and convert it to .png format so you can import it directly on our studio. If you don't feel confortable with this, we have a designer team which will be very happy to help you with this! Please, feel free to contact us! 😺 By the way, we're about to release a module to import automatically Autocad format (dwg), stay tuned! ;)

This looks awesome! As a consumer, is there any way I would know that the building I just entered uses Mapwize?

@daviswbaer Hello Davis, for now you can see the public venues directly on https://maps.mapwize.io/. Most of the time the venues are private though, because our customers implement it directly into their application. In this case, they make their own advertising of their app into their buildings, which means that you'll usually be notified when a building is "indoor mapped" ;). Thanks for your feedback! 🙏
