Westfield Touchsreen Routefinder (IB ltd)

Devise and build a routefinder application to be used on touchscreen kiosks in shopping centres nationwide.


One of my roles as an interactive developer for Instant Business was to create a routefinder system that would integrate with the existing map system. Working with designers and technicians, it was my responsibility to devise and build a system that would enable shopping centre visitors to select a store \ facility and then be provided with an animated route to their destination. 

This project required me to work very closely with the back-end team, as the routefinder integrates with a networked CMS system, holding information on hundreds of stores \ facilities. We developed a simple, modular approach that fulfilled the requirements of being;
a) Easy to update - very important when dealing with a live database of hundreds of stores.
b) Skinnable - allowing multiple implementations from one code base.
c) Extendable - easy to add new functionality for individual shopping centre requirements.
