New: vector plans


This month, we have released an all-new Mapwize feature: support for vector format floorplans. Compared to Bitmap, vector floorplans hold two important advantages: the first concerns the size of the file, which is reduced even for large buildings. The second is that it enables the automatic import of floorplans from the file formats used by architects and surveyors.

The format used is the GeoJSON, which is widely used today to transmit geographical information. The support of this universal format is important to facilitate the import and export of maps with Mapwize. Finally, we have put in place a system of stylesheets which allows us to fine-tune the rules for displaying various elements of the floorplan. Interested in learning more about vector maps? Please reach out to us so that we can set up a demo.
