Versatile Applications

Regardless of industry, Mappedin provides you with a simplified workflow to showcase your venue floor plans on Apple Maps. We've worked with shopping malls, office buildings, stadiums, campuses, grocery stores, retailers, and more around the globe.

Along with the Apple Maps platform, Mappedin enables indoor mapping experiences across your entire portfolio of digital touch points. From your website, to mobile applications and touchscreen digital directories, visitors can rely on an accurate and intuitive mapping experience.

Leader in Indoor Mapping

Apple has made their indoor mapping program available to all, meaning anyone can submit data through IMDF. The difference with Mappedin is our expertise and experience with indoor venues, a dedication to heightened data standards, process automation, constant collaboration with Apple, and the ability to maintain your venue maps through one platform.

Using Mappedin's Responsive Web App, visitors can access their location directly in the browser. This experience is seamless and does not rely on hardware installations or application downloads.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) approved IMDF as a new Community Standard.

An Improved IMDF Workflow

Convert to IMDF

Mappedin’s Platform transforms 2D floor plans and blueprints into digital assets to be used in any venue type. Along with powerful front-end experiences, Mappedin has the ability to convert your indoor mapping data to IMDF. This export allows maps to be maintained over time and provides you with the flexibility to build any indoor mapping experience.

Maintain IMDF

As locations within your venue change and grow, Mappedin's Editor acts as a centralized management tool to edit your indoor maps and maintain accurate data. Edit location information, manage map geometry, and more to ensure that your IMDF stays up-to-date. Changes to your map are exported to Apple so that visitors can rely on accurate data.
