LocusMaps Online Intro
Zooming in on Terminal 7 shows some of the rich detail captured by the maps, including:
Points of Interest
- Amenities like charging stations, defibrillators, water fountains, nursing rooms and more.
- Basic layout
- Thoroughfares like stairs, elevators, escalators, walkways, passages and more.
These details are available for every floor of every building for a venue.
In addition to the basic map display, LocusMaps Online provides a variety of built-in widgets to enable users to easily change the building or floor, perform searches, view Point of Interest details or find directions between any two Points of Interest, for example an arrival gate and the baggage counter or the check-in desk and a restaurant or lounge.
The Levels Widget
As a venue can have numerous buildings with a number of different floors, the levels widget provides an easy way to navigate between them. The following video shows the ease of which the floor can be changed and how the map dynamically adapts to layout changes:
The Search Widget
The powerful search widget, demonstrated in the video below, allows a user to:
- Instantly see the locations of categorized Points of Interest like shops, restaurants, airlines and more.
- Search using any keyword and choose from a list of generic or specific suggestions, the locations of which are indicated on the map.
The Point of Interest Widget
Clicking on a result in the Search Widget zooms the map to the selected result and opens the detailed Point of Interest Widget, which contains the following information:
- Name & Overview
- Location (building, floor, pre/post security)
- Website Link (clickable)
The Directions Widget
Getting clear and easy-to-follow directions between any two points in a venue is a breeze with the Directions Widget. Once start and end points have been entered, the route is shown on the map and a step-by-step interface provided to guide the user along the way. The video below shows how getting to your gate has never been easier.
