Colleges and Universities

Colleges and universities are often considered stand-alone cities. With housing, dining, and diverse events
on site (not to forget educational activities!), it is an experience that many can literally get 'lost' in!
Where is my classroom? Where do I eat?

The answer to these questions and more is at your fingertips with Mapsted. We will guide you
where you need to be and provide various opportunities along the way. While the benefits of seamless
outdoor to indoor wayfinding through sprawling and complex campuses is paramount, navigation is only
one of the many benefits that Mapsted's location technology can provide.
