Mappedin Venue Format (MVF) is a GeoJSON-based export that translates location data from the Mappedin system into a format that is globally recognized and documented. GeoJSON supports several different geometry types including points, linestrings, multipoint, multilinestring, and multipolygon.
Mappedin Venue Format is Mappedin’s proprietary indoor mapping format that is used to power digital map experiences. This export provides customers with geometry and location data associated with their venue. Through an API, Mappedin customers can ensure all recent changes to their data syncs accordingly, whether multiple times a day or once a month.
Many platforms understand GeoJSON-based formats, which means that MVF allows customers to integrate indoor maps into many different applications. From layering indoor mapping data onto an outdoor map, integrating with positioning systems, or visualizing detailed data and analytics on a map, Mappedin Venue Format provides customers with ultimate flexibility.
MVF puts the raw venue data back into the hands of our customers. With access to this raw data, customers can completely control their indoor mapping experience every step of the way and are not bound by features that currently exist in Mappedin’s SDKs or pre-built applications.
For industries and use cases where the indoor map does not require 3D wayfinding (an internal-only security map at a mall versus a 3D shopper-facing map, for example) MVF provides the necessary data and gives customers the freedom to build an end experience for their specific use case. In some cases this is a 2D map but through this export, customers still have the ability to use Mappedin’s 3D renderer or select another of their choosing and populate 3D maps.
