Render high quality maps and routes
Umajin supports a wide range of both 2D and 3D map technologies to support common application requirements like locating items on a map or indicating routes and progress along them.
Formats include Google Maps, Google Earth, open street maps and multilayer custom tile sets. Umajin also supports 3D building CAD data and 3D photometric scans of buildings. Umajin has a unique capability of translating GPS to illustrative map locations (think NYC subway maps).
With native Google maps support wayfinding and routing can also be used with the correct Google licensing.
Data sets can also be viewed in 3D – this is particularly interesting where building data is available to create very realistic scenarios for users.
The ability to have purely illustrative map layers is very useful for use cases like the Umajin indoor location technology. This allows you to locate rooms within complex multi story buildings simply by marking the points of interest on image based floor plans.
In a unique feature for Umajin it is possible to use GPS and RF location technologies – along with wayfinding on simplified illustrative maps.
Even though the map is visually simplified Umajin can translate the users real world position into the visual map space making it easy for users to visualize their location relative to land marks in museums, parks and public spaces like transport hubs.
