Recent Updates

New Construction Floor Plans

These should be added to the maps:
Floor Four Construction
Floor 3 Nook Deletion
Floor 3 Systems Reduction

New site & API

Souvey put up a new site based on his new IndoorMap API here: http://wvhmaps.souvey.com/
It's now up on our own VM at http://maps.ccs.neu.edu/

Read the documentation of the IndoorMap API.

Mobile Proof of Concept

I threw together a proof of concept of a mobile app for Android
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4568596/maps/android_v1.apk
It basically wraps the JavaScript version with some simple platform integration (native zoom buttons and native search)

Prototype

Goals

  • Get Floorplans on Map
    • Source floorplans – CAD diagrams?
  • Source placemarkers and put them onto the map
    • From spreadsheet?
    • Or perhaps other solutions

Future

  • Extend to other buildings
  • Other programmatic placemarker features

They provide a quick how-to: http://code.google.com/p/googleio2009-map/wiki/HowTo

Ideas

  • Integration with Lab Metrics - Heat Map of use, current computer usage, ect.
  • Track faculty - Olin Tracker 3000.
  • Images of rooms - Use a kinect to make 360 views of each room, I think SIPB had a similar project but with regular photos.
  • Room information - Does it have a projector? Computer? Number of chairs?
  • Search - Obviously.
  • No labels
