New Responsive Template for 3D Wayfinder

March 7, 2017

New template is now available for all 3D Wayfinder users. Template called “Iglu” is responsive HTML5 based template for 3D Wayfinder with clean and modern design. It is open-source and uses our newest AngularJS framework based template.

There is a new default template for all 3D Wayfinder projects and it’s called Iglu. Currently this template can only be used to view 3D projects. But rest assured we’re working on the 2D version as well. The 2D template will have exact same layout and styles as the 3D version. The main feature of this new template is the use of AngularJS. In addition to this there is one more major feature being added and it is responsiveness. This means that it can be viewed in both portrait and landscape mode. It will look good on all ranges and sizes of displays, be it a 55” kiosk screen or a 5” smartphone with WebGL support.


The template has three main sections which are the header, the map and the menu. The header has the building logo and button for activating the navigation menu. Below the header is the map that has map controls on it: floor buttons, zoom buttons, shortcut buttons.


Navigation menu

When the navigation menu is activated it will cover the right side of the map on larger screens and the whole map area on smaller screens. Currently the navigation menu has three tabs – the alphabetical listing, the category listing and search.


Our new template covers all main features, needed for wayfinding:

  • Map navigation controls
  • A-Z list of all locations
  • Categories
  • Location info
  • Search

Although the template suites very well for wayfinding kiosks and mobile applications. It is also good for just showing and browsing 3D architectural models.
