Maps of big events

It is possible to create maps of events taking place in vast areas using the Navicup map system – for websites, for the Navicup mobile application or even print them out on paper. Café Days, Open Farm Days, car races and folk sporting events are all events where people wish to get information about different spots or places where something is happening, find the places and move from one spot to another. It is possible to add places on the map where something is happening, where one can find service areas, traffic restrictions, toilets, eating areas etc. In the case of races it is also possible to see where a racer is at that time and even see their results.
A map on a website is generally used before an event, because it is more convenient to view the map on the bigger screen of a desktop computer, although it is also possible to look up information beforehand in the Navicup mobile application. During the event and when moving around using the mobile application is considerably more convenient than the other alternatives. With the use of Navicup it is possible to get thorough statistics about the visitors and their movement during the event gives interesting “heatmap” information.

Use

1. A Café Day. Create a new café day event on navicup.com and send an e-mail to people planning to attend it with a link to the attending application form. The attendee fills the form with all of the relevant information about their café, adds pictures, texts and determines the correct location. They can change all of their data later if needed. The organiser of the event just has to accept the applications and their changes. The Navicup system automatically creates a digital public event map that the organiser can then add to their homepage if they wish and also refer to it on social media. It is also possible to print the map of the event out on paper. In addition, the map of the event is also available in the Navicup mobile application which makes moving around much easier on the day of the event. It is also possible to add the progression of public transport in real time or also a “moving” shop, for instance.
2. The map of a car race (also marathons). Create a map of the event, add the routes, starts, finishes, traffic restrictions, spectators' and catering and other important spots on it and insert the time schedule of the event in the information part. If the race also uses the tracking and scoring system by Navicup or one that is supported by Navicup, the moving and results of the racers are displayed on the mobile application map in real time. It is possible to send notices about the delay of the start or an accident on the track via Navicup to the mobile applications of spectators in a certain area.

More important possibilities (the added ones are typed in bold)

*Creating your own maps without possessing any deeper knowledge about computers.
*Save points and the hiking trail by “walking” through it or you can also do it on your computer without even leaving your desk.
*The changes made on a map are visible to the users of the app in real time, which gives an important advantage compared to paper maps where making changes or correcting mistakes would mean printing out a whole new edition of the map.
*It is possible to import trails and also points from Goolge maps, it supports the kml and gps file formats.
*By using your map the visitor can get to know your area, discover exciting places and “listen” to interesting local stories.
*The application leads the visitor to the places they want to go to and doesn't let them get lost.
*The users of the map can give “stars”, share emotions or write feedback about points of interest.
*The administrator of the map can receive valuable information about the points of interest (computing statistics, “heatmap” etc.).
*A wide gallery of photos taken during the event is created using the Navicup mobile application where all of the photos can be found in the locations on the map where they were taken.
*It is possible to send notices into the Navicup mobile applications of spectators/attendees.
*When people are charged a fee for entering the map in the app, the mobile application can also function as a “day ticket” for the event or race.
