TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

This system has been developed by the researchers due to experiences they encountered during the times when they were also newcomer students. Although there is already a locator map existed, but still the information is not sufficient to guide. Most of visitors and freshmen students were always misguided with the exact location of rooms, offices, departments, external campuses and projects. The administration, faculty and staff would not be exposed and familiarized by the students. As a result, sometimes they would not be respected by the students.

Public information system

Information kiosks have become an essential part in transportation related processes and transactions. They have made printing and processing of tickets very easy and have reasonably lowered the operating cost. They are widely used for providing necessary information to travelers. They are increasingly being used at railway stations and airport for check-ins and have helped the authorities in simplifying the process and cutting down the overhead cost. You can display useful information about the offerings by retail stores and earn revenue for yourself.

There is virtually no area where information kiosks can not be used for a better customer satisfaction and cutting costs. It is being used by more and more educational institutions these days, for instance, providing access to information on the different programs, course outline, helpful student information, and registration for course, payment of fees and various other purposes.

Kiosks have extensive experience in providing specific customized hardware as well as software solutions for information kiosks for different kinds of usage and purposes.

Family Information Services (FIS)

Parent Information Point Wall mounted touch screen Family Information Services Kiosk system with custom software for the Childcare Information Service (FIS) to parents and careers about caring for children, going back to work, and a host of other information besides. Central government has made provision of this information by local governments mandatory, and not only that they also have to show that the information has actually been delivered. Kiosks for Parent Information Point provide information in four ways: on-screen, via print-out to our locally sited wireless printer, via an e-mail to the user’s home e-mail account and lastly through a free phone call using the integrated digital telephone handset (based on VoIP technology).   The touch screen machines are a significant improvement on normal kiosk products by being compact, wireless and wall-mounted. Part of the system allows each council to control it’s estate of machines by using a single, web-based Management Console. This console also provides usage statistics on-demand and more. Parent Information Point is a very complete offering but the focus of the system remains very firmly, the user.

Parent Information Point Kiosk is designed specifically for delivering information in the Early Years and Family Information Services (FIS) environment. It satisfies the need to deliver live, relevant and up-to-date information to parents and careers of children.

REVIEW OF RELATED STUDY

Kiosk Information System (KIS)

Since 1993, KIOSK Information Systems at 346 South Arthur Avenue Louisville, CO 80027 has led the industry in design and manufacturing of self-service kiosks. The team is a “cradle to grave” service organization that takes full ownership in the success of customer programs — from initial solution design to manufacturing and field services.

KIOSK has partnered with clients in a full complement of vertical markets, transforming self-service concepts to deployed solutions. Projects range from traditional applications like retail, order entry, and human resources to highly specialized solutions in banking, healthcare, airport security, and outdoor ticketing. With 100,000+ kiosks deployed across this broad market spectrum, KIOSK’s abilities in customized design, sophisticated peripheral integration, volume manufacturing, and field services have been exercised far deeper than any industry competitor.

Clients with 500 – 3000 unit nationwide deployments such as AT&T, Wal-Mart, Safeway, PepsiCo, Sony, HP, and TIO set the standards bar high, and KIOSK has consistently proven the ability to execute at every stage of the program life cycle. Much lower volume clients (1 – 20 units) enjoy equal attention and responsiveness.

Photo-Realistic 3-D Campus Map of UNCC

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s interactive map features a new photo-realistic campus map drawn by Campus Tours cartographers that depicts trees, shrubs, people, statues and locations with stunning clarity. Campus Tours artists rendered the entire University of North Carolina at Charlotte campus using 3D and then painstakingly applied accurate textures and colorations to produce this ground breaking campus map. According to Campus Tours visitor surveys, photorealistic maps are considered the best campus maps available today.

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Interactive Map is based on the new Campus Tours Any Map 2.0 System Mobile Device Module, which supports both iOS and Android mobile devices, without the need for an app download. Campus Tours focus-group testing has indicated that students visit college .edu web sites with their mobile devices, and they are frustrated when elements of the sites do not work on their phones, tablets and other Internet-enabled devices. Furthermore, more than 90% of students in focus groups agreed that they do not go to the market to research college-specific apps until they have substantially narrowed their list of schools. In this environment, it is vital for schools to have a capable HTML5/JavaScript solution that presents a compelling and GPS-enabled alternative interactive map for visitors.

The Any Map Mobile Device Module supports mobile devices of any size, maximizing the viewable area of your map on larger screens and tablets. Any Map Mobile also includes GPS-based prompts that alert visitors to additional content when they wander close to particular buildings. as visitors move through the map, clicking on items, Any Map 2.0 actively updates the URL, giving visitors the ability to press the forward and back button in the browser, and to use the Favorites or Bookmarks feature.
