FOCUS ON… TRAVEL MAPS

Discover the most advanced Map Aided Generation Tool

When it comes to map generation , travel operators and cruise line companies have to face numerous requirements. A seasonal production of large quantities of cruise maps must be addressed to different channels, such as web sites, mobile, brochures, tickets and so on, while regular update and production of maps are needed for changed and new itineraries.

For cruise maps , for instance, accuracy and consistency of port names, port locations, labels, port-to-port routes throughout different maps and channels is often an issue. Moreover, multilingual support is increasingly requested (including for Eastern languages) together with high responsiveness.

Cruises, a paradigm of the travel industry

In their day-to-day operations, cruise line companies sum up many of the typical issues companies have to face in the whole travel industry. in fact, cruise line companies have very often to face with such requirements as:

  • Seasonal production of large quantities of cruise maps for different channels: web sites, mobile, brochures, tickets, …
  • Regular update and production of cruise maps for changed and new itineraries
  • Accuracy and consistency of port names, port locations, labels, port-to-port routes throughout different maps and channels
  • Multilingual support (maybe for eastern languages)
  • High responsiveness whenever new maps are requested

Multiple benefits in one solution: Travel Maps 

Key Technologies’ answer is Travel Maps , a solution that allows you to create many maps layout (skins) and to define such parameters for each one as resolution, background, fonts, connectors, port pins, language, output format (jpeg, gif, png, tiff, svg,…) and more. Travel Maps also allows you to edit maps on multiple skins simultaneously, speeding up the production process.  Travel Map s also supports bulk re-creation of cruise maps (e.g. when background changes).

You have always control on the process: Travel Maps provides an approval workflow (through web interface and email notifications) and provides a web REST interface too, to distribute the approved maps to other systems.

Travel Maps speeds up the map generation process, with more accuracy, total responsiveness and multilingual support. Updating your maps with multiple skins will be easier than ever.
