As part of the new development of a native app for iOS and Android, OUTLETCITY METZINGEN GmbH commissioned amplify design for the implementation of an interactive 3D Map of the shopping area. This map makes it easier for the visitors to navigate and orient themselves through the premises as well as encourage them to explore the shops in the area. Taking into account the technical requirements, amplify design created a homogeneous design concept to present the 3D model of the entire area.
amplify design created the interaction and visual design for the user-friendly operation of the map. Unity 3D was used for the implementation.
The 3D Map consists of a combination of OpenStreetMap data and 3D buildings of the Outletcity Metzingen, modelled by amplify design.
With the help of interactive pins, which can be filtered by category, the user has access to more detailed information about the area. In addition, the utilization of the parking spaces is displayed in real time. Functions such as location determination and alignment via GPS and compass simplify the navigation for all users.
In order to be able to react to changes in the area, the contents of the map can be updated at any time via the backend using asset bundles.
The app has been available in the App Store since April 2019.
