Location Sharing

Our Mapsted Maps framework offers several location-sharing options to help users interact with family, friends or colleagues. With location sharing, users can:

  • Share their real-time location with others on their contact list
  • Tag their car by creating a pin and using it to navigate back to its location
  • Create a pin and share it to meet up with friends at a specific location
  • Set a duration for how long location sharing will be available

Location Tags

Using location tags users can easily create a pin for a specific location and share that location with their friends for easy coordination. Users also have the abilityto send messages along with their location. For example, visitors can:

  • Tag the food court on level 3 of a shopping centre, and share that location pin with several friends, along with a message that reads, "Meet me at 1pm for lunch."
  • Visit different places in a large venue, while still being aware of each other's location, by displaying each other’s locations on their maps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Location sharing enables a user to send their current location to another person through the navigation app. The receiver can easily use the sent location to navigate to it. This makes it easier for people to navigate to other people, instead of endlessly searching on a large property.

Location sharing is usually used in large indoor places with a lot of crowds. Most common in places like shopping malls, resorts, theme parks, and universities. In hospitals too, location sharing can be very beneficial during emergency situations.

Users can access location sharing through the indoor navigation app on their smartphones.

Mapsted’s location-sharing feature lets you add tags to places that allow you to send messages along with the location to other users. This makes it easier for people to schedule their meetings inside an indoor space.
