Information from Inpixon

Inpixon, a company specialising in delivering indoor intelligence, has released its latest mapping platform, Jibestream 4.12. The update offers new and enhanced features to streamline the creation, management and delivery of indoor maps. The release also includes support for point labels and new capabilities for integrating outdoor and indoor maps into a single application.

This release’s Outdoor-Indoor Kit for Google Maps allows customers to utilise Google Maps’ SDK along with the Jibestream SDKs to deliver outdoor/indoor experiences in a single app. For instance, an app user in their home can enter a specific destination within a target facility and be guided through the outdoor portion of their journey to the best building entrance using the Google map, and then be guided within the building to their indoor destination using the Inpixon map. Optional integration with smart parking systems can guide users to open parking spaces or to their parked vehicle.

Point labels, label clusters and advanced label collision handling improves how names of buildings, areas, units, stores, pathways, points of interest, etc. appear in the user interface at various zoom levels and orientations. Point labels are also not restricted to the label box boundary, giving customers more control over the label’s sizing, when it is displayed/hidden, and its orientation. Switching on clustering collapses labels that are close in proximity into a group. When labels would otherwise overlay each other, more advanced handling has been implemented for both inlay and point labels to improve their appearance.

Other notable features of this release include a new wizard-like approach to venue creation, drag-and-drop layer ordering, the addition of custom properties for shapes and more.
