Mapsted is a free, easy-to-use app that provides state-of-the-art indoor navigation in shopping malls and other indoor facilities. No more staring at directory signs or getting lost in a busy mall. Mapsted works in any building that Mapsted has mapped; just download it once and use it everywhere.
Mapsted lets you search for stores, products and services by name, category or type. It also lets build your own custom profile by entering your preferences, interests, shopping behavior and other information. With that, Mapsted and its partners can deliver you a shopping experience that is customized especially for you.
Mapsted doesn’t require Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or an internet connection to work. It’s the world’s only stand-alone indoor navigation system. It doesn’t rely on a mobile data connection, and it uses very little battery power. So you can shop ‘till you drop – anywhere – with no worries about your battery or data consumption.
Mapsted uses proprietary, “world’s most advanced stand-alone indoor navigation system” patented technology to provide highly accurate, step-by-step indoor navigation. It accurately displays the locations of stores, service kiosks, washrooms and other amenities in a building. It shows your location, the location of places you want to go to, and guides you every step of the way. You don’t even have to launch it - Mapsted recognizes when you enter a location that has been mapped and loads itself automatically. You simply search, click, and start walking.
A New Category Emerges:
Rudimentary indoor navigation systems first appeared about five years ago. Since then, interest in indoor navigation has grown rapidly. New products enter the market every year, each promising to bring the same kind of seamless, inexpensive mapping and navigation to the indoors that GPS systems provide outdoors. Even technology giants such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft see opportunity; they are all investing significant resources into indoor navigation.
Mapsted’s patented mapping system makes adding new facilities quick and easy:
Mapsted Mapping is the company’s internal proprietary system for initial mapping and calibration. After an initial rudimentary map of a location is uploaded, a “mapper” simply launches Mapsted Mapping and walks the indoor space. The app calibrates positions and locations of stores, aisles, doors, entrances and exits - as well as amenities, and other points of interest - to create a fully-functional digitized map for use by Mapsted Navigation users.
A fully detailed map for a new location can be created, calibrated and launched within days - sometimes even hours! - and becomes instantly usable to Mapsted users worldwide. This simple and rapid deployment makes Mapsted the world’s most flexible and costeffective indoor navigation system by far. Mapsted will soon be recruiting teams of mappers all across North America and in other global markets to help it map the indoor world.
