40 maps that explain World War I | Vox | Wayfinding | Scoop.it

by Zack Beauchamp, Timothy B. Lee and Matthew Yglesias 

One hundred years ago, on June 28, 1914, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary was assassinated by Serbian terrorists. The murder set off a chain reaction that plunged much of the world into war. The Great War killed 10 million people, redrew the map of Europe, and marked the rise of the United States as a global power. Here are 40 maps that explain the conflict — why it started, how the Allies won, and why the world has never been the same.

Calgary Signs & Banners Better Solution for Wayfinding signs

Calgary Signs & Banners Better Solution for Wayfinding signs | Wayfinding | Scoop.it

8 July, 2013: Digital signage is a great tool for almost any company to communicate with its employees, customers, or guests. But it'? not just supposed to look good: it should be functional and serve a real purpose. 

Wayfinding can be an excellent use of digital signage, especially in large buildings with various departments, where people are always getting lost or asking for directions. 

When people are in a hurry and can't find their destination, they can grow frustrated-some may even abandon the mission altogether and leave after a couple failed attempts at finding the right place. Or they'll have to stop and ask every employee where the cardiac wing is located. 

Rather than simply playing live TV in the lobby, your digital signage can help visitors navigate through the building from the second they walk in the door. 

Wayfinding can be integrated into a digital signage system in a variety of forms-turn-by-turn directions, a visual illustration via path-drawing, a simple static map of the building, or intricate floor plans complete with a staff directory. 

Interactive wayfinding on a touchscreen kiosk allows visitors to personalize the information to exactly what they want or need-even if they don't know what that is just yet (for example, the ability to search for a restaurant on a college campus by cuisine and then locating it on the map). 

Because digital signage allows you to post content with immediacy, maps can quickly be updated to reflect any changes in office locations or updated floor plans after building renovations. And if the staff meeting changes to another room last minute, that information can quickly be changed. 

Signs don't have to be solely dedicated wayfinding. They can also contain the weather, news ticker, and a company advertisement; this is especially true of interactive signs, where users can move to completely different pages with one touch. 

If people can quickly and easily navigate through your facility and have a positive experience, they will be more likely to return than if they were left frustrated trying to find Room 12B for an hour. 

Some of the most common and successful applications of digital wayfinding include: 

Leading visitors through hospitals to locate departments, patient rooms, and cafeteria
Guiding visitors throughout a corporate facility to the correct office
Helping students, staff, and visitors navigate a college campus
Directing guests to a meeting or event room in conference centers and hotels
So if visitors are constantly getting lost in your building, keep your digital signage system on the right path with wayfinding.

CSB can supply and install at client's location tower signs, wayfinding and directory indoor and outdoor signs customised with clients' logo and information.
