We create maps in a semi-automated process with the raw floor plans as input, and output a leaner and visually pleasing map where we have identified the rooms, doors, and various points of interest. These maps are the base product that allows us to provide useful features like path finding, booking of meeting rooms / desks / hotel rooms, resource management, etc.
