Campus Map Help

Map

The Interactive Campus Map allows users to easily view location details about WU’s departments, services or points of interest such as the buildings D1 to D5 (department buildings), TC (Teaching Center), SC (Students Center), AD (Administration), LC (Learning Center), EA (Executive Academy). A basement.at map is used as a background map. In order to navigate on the map, click on the map and drag the map in the desired position. To minimize or enlarge the map, use the scroll wheel of your mouse or the buttons of the zoom bar. To enlarge the map, you can also double-click on the desired position.

Search

search field

To use the search function, enter at least three characters in the search field. If you have entered e.g. “Lib”, all results which start with “Lib” are automatically displayed. After selecting a search result, it is displayed in the map.

Routing

routing results

Via the routing function, you can enter a starting and end point and the optimal path between these two points will be displayed.

In addition to the map view and satellite images, the Interactive Campus Map gives you information on the distance and walking time of a route. If a route is leading over more than one level, the route section of the active level is displayed with a thick line. The rest of the route is displayed with a dotted or thin line. If you are e.g. in TC.1.02 on level 1 and you want to create a route to the main entrance on level 0, the route from TC.1.02 to the staircase is displayed thicker than the part from the staircase to the main entrance. If you select level 0 as active level, the thickness of the lines is changing. If the option “Barrier Free Route” is activated, you will not be directed via stairs.

Sharing

Indrz can create direct links to rooms or POI's. To create a link simply click the share icon located inside the popup that is immediately displayed after a search. The new popup will show you the link you can copy and paste directly into your email client or in any other platform. With POIs you can share single unique POIs or entire POI categories. Inside the popup you see two options where you can make your selection. for example: https://campus.wu.ac.at/de/?poi-cat-id=64,65,66,67,71

You can also include a custom zoom level with each shared url:

It is also possible to share unique routes. Click "share route" and then copy the url ctl + C or command + C into your email or browser. It is important to note that sharing of routes only works when the start and end points are unique. We cannot create routes to multiple desitinations. Also normal routes use a type=0 by default. To create a barrierfree route set the type=1 in the url parameter.
