Easy and Intuitive image based indoor navigation; 
what you see is what you get

User experience is always paramount for Eyedog Indoor Navigation. When users can get lost inside a mobile wayfinding application, they certainly get lost inside the building.

Good wayfinding is characterized by bringing down human spatial processing when navigating large complex buildings. Eyedog's Photo navigation system is based on ‘street-view’ like photographic imagery. These pictures represent physical characteristic objects and/or artificial landmarks inside the building. Combining what you see in the environment with simple schematic direction and easy-to-follow text-based direction, Eyedog provides simple and efficient turn-by-turn navigation.

The Eyedog Photo Landmark navigation system provides turn-by-turn, clear, unambiguous navigation instructions conducted by landmarks. These landmarks are presented by pictures representing physical characteristic objects and/or artificial landmarks inside the building.

At difficult locations inside buildings, users can request more information about the environmental situation of the building. Additional navigation instructions, or close ups of intersections are available for consultation.

The system user does not need to read digital maps or learn a foreign interface – what you see is what you get. We have seen that many people have difficulty interpreting maps and other abstract visualizations of space. In combination with human-computer interface processing, interpreting digital maps on devices can provide a frustrating user experience.

Hence, Eyedog Indoor Navigation allows visitors of complex buildings to easily and intuitively find their way to their destination.

Simple mobile Wayfinding data Management

Simple wayfinding management is crucial when deploying a mobile indoor navigation system in your facility.

Large buildings often have to deal with lots of changes that have an immediate impact on wayfinding. Relocation of points of interest, construction work, expanding (new building, new extension), maintenance of hallways, elevators that are out of order, etc, etc. All these changes have a great impact on how people are able to find their way. 

We strongly believe that a mobile wayfinding system should be easy to update. It is the intelligent architecture of Photo Landmark Navigation that makes updating wayfinding data a very simple task.

Unlike any other system in the market the Eyedog Wayfinding Content Management System can handle all these changes in just minutes and offer real-time availability of the latest wayfinding information to all building visitors through the Eyedog API. 

Closing corridors, elevators, staircases, adding new buildings, etc due to construction or maintenance is very easy and can be done quickly by the organisation itself or by Eyedog. Your staff will be trained to make changes quickly, like adjusting paths, create preferred paths, moving locations, taking new pictures, changing location names, etc. 

Updating visual elements is very easy. Just take your smartphone, make new pictures and upload them to the Eyedog mobile wayfinding server. After updating the data, visitors will receive automatic updates instantly and will be re-routed in the building accordingly. It is as simple as that.
