mFloorMap

Description

This plugin is tailor-made for larger shopping centers, malls, parking lots, marketplaces, etc… to provide floor plan with details for each object on it.

It support separate management of multiple facilities and each facility can contain multiple floors.

Maps can be rendered on page/post using short-codes.
There is two types of short-codes:

  • Floor – display only map of specified floor
  • Facility – display array of zoomable maps which belongs to specified facility

Placing cursor over region on map will display tool-tip (cloud) with basic information about that object whether clicking on it will open separate page with full text description and attached photo.

Visitor can use “search by tag” functionality to easily find all related objects on map.
Searching controls will highlight all matched objects on all rendered maps.

Performance & UX

Browsing is maximally improved and accelerated by preloading of all basic object details on map(s).
As visitor moves cursor over next object details in cloud are instantly updated, only logo image will dispatch additional HTTP request if it is not cached.
Results of searching also will be instantly displayed because all needed data is already present.
