New releases

 

Mapping SDKs

Multi-Destination Support: Mappedin SDKs now include the ability for users to plan a route with multiple stops. This gives users the ability to add various points of interest and see the most efficient route through the venue.  

Customized Styling for Smart Labels: Customers using our Mapping SDKs can customize the styling of Smart Labels on their venue maps. Alter the appearance of the marker or text label by customizing size, colour, and stroke, as shown below.

Map Editor

CAD Import Feature: Over the past quarter, we’ve been working on an exciting new feature for our Map Editor. Currently being piloted, our CAD Importer provides new efficiencies to maintaining your indoor venue maps. With the click of a button, this feature imports all geometry included in your CAD file in order to generate a copy of your building in the Map Editor. Additionally, any location IDs associated with geometries are imported and assigned within our platform.

Vendor spotlight

Satisfi Labs is a conversational AI platform, creating conversational answer engines for destinations and experiences.
