How it works

Creating Smarter Spaces Through Digital Mapping

It only takes a few simple steps to ensure your venue’s ready for the future of digital mapping.


Step One

Scanning Your Venue

It’s as simple as taking a walk through your venue. One of our highly-trained technicians will navigate your location with a LiDAR scanner to capture multiple pieces of 360° data.

Step Two

A 3D Map of the Entire Space

Once the scan is complete, our mapping team will take the data and stitch together a comprehensive digital representation of your venue. With this data, they can generate a highly accurate two-dimensional floor plan, a computer-driven 3D point cloud, and an immersive feature cloud.

Step Three

Editing Your Map

With Studio, managing your venue’s map is straightforward. From controlling access and permissions to updating points of interest, you decide how a visitor should interact with your space.

Finding Your Way

Once finalized, whether using the GoodMaps native app or through an integrated SDK and API experience, visitors will be able to navigate your venue with ease.

What People Are Saying

With the launch of this app, we are pioneering support for as many customers as possible… This development could not have been possible without the support of the Walmart customer community. I invite all our local customers to come out and try the technology.

… with GoodMaps, you just have one surveyor scanning the station with a small piece of handheld equipment, [which] means you can get it set up quickly, and when you make updates to stations, you can arrange site visits to update your maps at short notice as well.

Accessibility & Transport Integration Manager (TransPennine Express)

With GoodMaps, not only are people going to be guided through our museum safely, but now we’re able to help them engage more fully with the museum’s collections and exhibits as well with audio descriptions and historical details available through the app.
