Navigating the Maze that is a Library

I found an email in my inbox this morning about an new building Way-finding utility that UC Davis Law School is working on. You’ll need to use your Firefox web browser for this early version of the app to work (a Chrome and Safari friendly version will be released soon). Here is a working demo of the application.  The application is obviously early in it’s development cycle, but has the potential to be an extremely useful utility for libraries.

Put most simply, Wayfinding is a building map router, that uses jQuery and SVG to help individuals navigate from room to room in multi story buildings.  Ideal for libraries that are often a complicated maze of book stacks.  Enjoy!
