New tech trend as public parks visitors turn to apps for navigation

A recent report mentioned that visitors of public parks have been increasingly using Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) to guide them in navigation during their visits to the park. Emerging as a global phenomenon, it has been observed that people of various age groups are using smart phone applications for navigating their time through the facility.

A similar application which is creating a buzz in the IPS industry is MapNav, an indoor positioning and navigation app. The CEO of Srisys, the developers of the app, said that, “Public parks are vast spaces which are in need of technology to assist them in efficient management. Our app Attractions has all the necessary features to give the management and users of the park a hassle-free time while at the facility.”

This trend seems to be catching up pretty fast with parks across the US and Europe viewing demos of the application before making the final call to install it.
