Campus Guidance System for International
Conferences Based on OpenStreetMap.
Proceedings of 9th International Symposium on web and Wirelass Geographic Information Systems.
We present a web-based, multi-lingual, campus guidance system
with emphasis on pedestrian navigation aimed at providing support
for delegates attending International Conferences at the National University
of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) campus. A special campus guidance
system could improve the logistics of the conference. Potentially
such improvements could attract more delegates to the conference. The
Cloudmade Web Map Lite API which uses OpenStreetMap has been
used for creating this interface. The system generates shortest pedestrian
paths using both outdoor pavements and indoor corridors between
various buildings and points of interests (POI). For visual assistance in
pedestrian navigation geotagged images are used along the path at certain
points in the route, such as road intersections, when the user needs
to get their orientation correct. The interface is available in both English
and Chinese language.
