GoodMaps Explore is an accessible navigation application. It helps everyone, visually impaired or not, navigate indoors and outdoors safely and efficiently. To make that happen, GoodMaps is on a mission to map the great indoors by streamlining that process. We can accurately map a building in the time it takes to walk through it. These maps are available to Explore app users.
The GoodMaps Explore app provides:
1. Simple user interface that effectively describes your surroundings and is easy to learn with on-board tutorials.
2. No-cost solution. The GoodMaps Explore application is available for free.
3. Completely accessible interface. We purposely built accessibility into the design from the start. Our design efforts were fueled by feedback from actual users, results of rigorous accessibility testing (including recommendations from CTA-2076 Standard), and maximizing the built-in Apple accessibility.
Top Functions include:
Location: On-demand or automatic updates about your immediate surroundings. Shake your phone to hear a snapshot of your current location, including current direction, nearest room, street, or points of interest (POI).
Directions: Accurate indoor routing for independent travel. Follow a route to a destination in mapped indoor venues.
Lookaround: Direction-based discovery at your fingertips. Discover the POIs in the direction you point the phone. You will hear the POIs in order of proximity.
Nearby: Notifications on the go. Hear automatic location notifications like street names, restaurants, parks, and shops outdoors along with office spaces, reception areas, water fountains, and restrooms indoors.
Virtual Mode: Before you go. Set your position outdoors to a POI and explore its surroundings. Search indoor POIs and follow routes to them virtually.
You can also:
Select a Favorite POI or address to quickly set as a destination.
Search for POIs indoors or outdoors.
Locate nearby intersections.
Load Be My Eyes to provide live visual assistance.
Another revolutionary aspect of GoodMaps Explore is the superior indoor positioning accuracy provided by camera-based positioning (CPS). CPS technology utilizes LiDAR and geo-referenced images in a space to determine a user's location down to 2-3 feet of accuracy without needing to install beacons or hardware.
