A customised interactive map allows us to navigate around a building or event (e.g. museum, a hospital, a school, a shopping centre or an exhibition) AND also provides access to additional information (e.g. Online resources, opening hours etc.) and web links (e.g. to an exhibitor’s website at an exhibition). Exhibitors can also host links to their exhibition stands from their website.
At MyMap we create two main types of interactive map
MyMap Type 1: Maps of physical spaces which are used for navigation and retrieval of relevant information about the space
MyMap Type 2: Maps which give access to information about various organisations, e.g. GAA clubs, Local Authotity’s etc.
Below we have three examples of MyMap Type 1 and one example of MyMap Type 2. These examples highlight a small selection of the content we can cover. The possibilities are endless.
MyMap Type1: Exhibitions and conferences
- the stand/stage layout for a temporary exhibition
- the number of exhibitors in colour-coded categories based on type of exhibitor/performer.
- It is also possible to identify available stands, allowing easy allocation and updating of information.
There are numerous ways to access additional information on this type of map:
- Hovering the mouse over each stand displays its occupier’s details.
- Clicking on a stand retrieves further details of the individual business and their website, if applicable.
- Each category has a dropdown list of exhibitors to simplify searching for a particular vendor.
- The search box can also be used.
This type of map has the following benefits:
For the Exhibition Organiser
It can be used to easily manage the allocation of stands to exhibitors.
All information is contained in one location- no need for a map and a separate list of exhibitors
The number of exhibitors in each category is clearly shown
The stands available for allocation are clearly shown
For the Exhibitors
Exhibitors could choose their stand from the list of available.
Exhibitors can have a link from their website to their stand at an exhibition
Exhibitors can see who is exhibiting near them.
MyMap Type1: Shopping Centres
When you move the mouse over each unit you see details for the business occupying that particular unit. Clicking on the unit takes you to more details on the individual business and its website if it has one. The categories on the left have dropdown lists of occupiers to simplify searching for a particular business. The search box can also be used if you are unsure of the category.
MyMap Type1: Housing developments
This type of map provides information about a housing development and is very beneficial for the developer, the estate agent and the customer searching for a new house. The map can be created as soon as the estate layout drawing and the plans for the different house types are available.
When you hover the mouse over each site, you see details for the site and its sale status. The categories on the left have dropdown lists of house type and sale status to simplify searching for a particular site. The search box can also be used if you are unsure of the category. The different house type plans can also be accessed from the map together with the estate agent’s contact details.
MyMap Type 2: Ireland Organisations
The GAA map shows the counties of Ireland who have GAA county teams. The map is colour coded based on the county colours. When you hover the mouse over each county you see the county name. Clicking on the county takes you to that county’s GAA website.
The Local Authority map shows the 31 Local Authorities in Ireland. When you hover the mouse over each area you see the local authority’s address and contact details. Clicking on the more button will take you to the website of that Local Authority.
These examples are simplified versions of MyMap Type 2.
The level and complexity of information can be customised to suit customer requirements.
This type of map can be used to access much greater quantities of information.
The possibilities are endless.
