wayfinding | jQuery plugin which provides the shortest route in svg
wayfinding is a jQuery plugin that will provided shortest route through a series of one or more svg maps from a given start location to a destination using routing information encoded into the svg file.
This plugin can be useful for kiosks and interactive digital signage.
This plugin uses the SVG Plugin by Keith Wood and needs the base jquery.svg.js, jquery.svgdom.js, and jquery.svganim.js files.
Base svg map files can be generated with a variety of tools including Adobe Illustrator. The maps use layers to hold the base map and information about:
- rooms — paths that define clickable areas in the map to enable touch routing.
- doors — end points to travel that associate names to the ends of paths.
- portals — connections between separate svg files that allow travel between floors or between the inside of a building and an area map.
- and paths — the possible routes of travel as line segments.
