FACILITY MAPS

What are Facility Maps?

Facility maps are very popular within medium and large size facilities. Especially facilities with large influxes of employee or guest traffic. Facility maps differentiate from traditional building maps, as they are designed to be a “catch-all”, providing safety & convenience. These maps are highly detailed, providing features of a building’s layout, size, purpose, safety and more. At Building Maps, we are a team of mapping professionals with the skills and knowledge to design accurate and highly legible facility maps.

CONVENIENCE & PROTECTION-TEST

Facility maps contain a wide variety of features specific to the industry they are serving. For example, if the map is servicing a transportation hub, they’ll be guiding users to transport gates, along with other facility amenities; restaurants, restrooms, information stations, ticket counters, etc. However, these maps must also provide detailed emergency information, leading users to evacuation exits, first aid stations, and shelters.
With so many features, it can be hard to depict each one on a map accurately. We recommend having your facility maps professionally designed to ensure that every aspect is well represented because these maps are not only for convenience but protection.
