Maps guide people to a certain place and inform them about a certain location especially people who doesn't know the place , new to the place or want to know any information about the place.
THe question now is...is there a need for an online map in a certain mall? Could this benefit the establishment and customers? In what way?
For me, it is very helpful if I want something in a mall especially when Im in a hurry. The online map would best help me know what establishment sell my certain needs or wants before going to the mall.
I don't really see the need, i mean all it's gonna take is a little more walking to find what you want, and atleast it gives you something to do, and mabye you'll find something awsome along the way.
But here is where you might need it:
Little timmy just drank some poison 'stuff' and is now on the ground frothing and rolling, so you rush to the mall to gett he super secret antidote that only 1 shop in the whole world sells, and it just so happens to be in your local mall.
So you rush around looking for the shop and when you get back, poor little timmy is lying there dead. So i guess in that situation(and im sure it occurs often )a map of the mall showing you exactly where the super secret antidote was being sold, would have been quite useful.
I think mall maps are great. Personally I hate malls and stores in general. I have on many occasions gotten "lost" in a mall when searching for a particular store, sometimes ending up on the whole opposite end of the building So I would find them particularly helpful, and beneficial.
Yea malls could use some good map system, cuz everytime i go to a big one i always get lost. Even if i have a map i still get lost and need to ask for directions... I guess online map would be the same cuz i would forgot where everything is before i even get to the mall...
But still i'm up for the online maps ;]
I never used an online mall map before, but I routinely use the online street maps (www.whereis.com.au). I guess it's just an added extra to spice up the website. Makes it more attractive.
Don't laugh, it could happen to you!
OMG!! your right.
We are all vulnerable!
you can print the map and bring it to the mall...
The mall management might as well install a big map on every single level.
ok... that's great. So there will be an online map as well as a local interactive map inside a mall.
I think there is no need for "online" maps for malls.
