Ecole Polytechnique & Mapwize


For quite some time, Ecole Polytechnique had wanted to set up a wayfinding solution to improve the campus experience for visitors, students, prospective students, and staff by making it easier for them to find their way around. Today, we can proudly say: it’s done! The X Campus application, available on iOS and Android stores, provides personalized on-campus guidance and includes a specific mode for people with reduced mobility. Useful information, such as transportation schedules (bus and train) and special events. Even campus restaurant menus are available in real time on the application!

Philippe Wlodyka, CIO of Polytechnique, and Baptiste Desprez, System Engineer, were keen to share their experience working with Mapwize: “Throughout the project, the Mapwize team […] contributed to the improvement of our campuses and have […] continuously evolved the management interface [Mapwize Studio] in order to better respond to the management of the plans and paths of a 16M sqft campus on 3 levels and with more than 500 referenced points-of-interest.”
