New to the campus? Or maybe even been here a while, but still get lost? Students, staff, faculty and visitors to UCSF, with its many campuses, can easily lose their way, especially when looking for a particular room. Google Maps or other map applications may get you to the right building…but where in the building is RM# ___?
Our vision would be to create indoor map facilities and geo-location object store for UCSF buildings. The indoor floor plan will be overlaid on the UCSF buildings. People may drill down from the building outside to see a deeper level of UCSF’s various campuses to pinpoint the exact room within the building. Any entities (such as medical equipment, library books, printers etc.) may be stored in our object store and found on the map. These facilities also provide a foundation for building the indoor navigation using GPS and other applications to integrate the geo-location store in the future.
Our proposed scope is to build a web application (currently target on mapping the Medical Sciences building at Parnassus), with the following scopes:
- Zoom in on map to the floor plan level of a building
- Switch floor to see different floor plan
- Create a proof of concept of geo-location object store
- Search for a room or object
- Mobile version if time permitted
Impact on UCSF's mission and/or community
Goal is to provide indoor map to public for public accessible buildings and restricted access for private premises. Patients, visitors (i.e. Collaborators, researchers, investors, alumnus, potential students…), neighbors, students and employees would be able to find stores, classrooms, patient rooms etc. in UCSF public buildings.
- Locations are easily searchable by keywords and destination
- Save time to look for a destination or equipment
- Improve UCSF image
- Provides a foundation for applications requiring indoor locations, such as indoor GPS
