Map Smarter, with

AI-Powered MapScale®

Say goodbye to manual mapping and experience fully automated, ultra-fast mapping at scale!

An epic leap for indoor mapping

100,000x faster, super scalable

MapScale® can map a 20,000 sqft floorplan in less than 20 mins, while it takes 6 hours for manual mapping. It's also able to run thousands of floorplans in parallel, and it helped digitize more than 2,000+ locations weekly. 


100% automated, AI-powered

MapScale® automates your digital maps' digitization process, accelerating your mapping product process with:

  • Auto room/furniture identification: MapScale® automatically identifies rooms, furniture, and building outlines via machine learning modules. It can extract floorplan data such as images, annotation of the room and furniture, etc., and it improves with every map digitized. 

  • Scheduled auto-update via API: MapScale® automatically retrieves your raw CAD files from a repository (on schedule or upon file changes) and converts them into interactive, beautifully designed digital indoor maps


Easy map management open for integration

Pointr Cloud is a user-friendly map CMS, providing a smooth mapping journey to save you from all that programming work and integration hassle. You can manually adjust map details and update your map outputs on Pointr Cloud or your mapping platform. It's open for integration, allowing you to source 3rd party data directly via Pointr Cloud API.


Smart auto-routing enables wayfinding in seconds

Pointr's smart auto-routing enables wayfinding the moment MpaScale® converts your floorplans into interactive digital maps, turning your building interactive in seconds! Pointr auto-routing supports:

  • Automatic path generation 

  • User-friendly, turn-by-turn directions

  • Re-routing when a user goes off path

Flexible API, ready to scale

MapScale® API can be called anytime and quickly transfer map outputs into Pointr Cloud or your own mapping platforms, allowing you to update map content or integrate map data from 3rd party sources into Pointr Maps (e.g., occupancy data, asset locations) via Pointr's SDKs.

Check out our dedicated FAQ

How does MapScale® automate the digitization process for raw floorplans?

Pointr's MapScale® is purpose-built to automate the process of digitizing CAD floorplans. MapScale® processes a CAD floorplan as follows:

  • Removes extraneous information from the CAD floor plan
  • Determines the building's actual outline
  • Determines room boundaries
  • Determines and classifies furniture
  • Classifies rooms based on size and furniture
  • Converts the map to a vector format
  • Applies cartographic design to the map
What file types does MapScale® support?

MapScale® supports all popular versions of DWG, DXF, and vector PDF files.

Note that the PDF files must contain vectorial information: 

  • Files that are directly exported as PDFs using AutoCAD.
  • Files that are converted from DWG/DXF.
How long does it take MapScale® to produce an interactive digital map?

For a 20k sqft area (which would take around 6 hours of work if done manually):

  • It takes MapScale® less than 20 mins to do (excl. manual QA - 2hrs)
  • It reduces more than 99% of your time digitizing your floor plans. If needed, MapScale® can be configured to run in parallel for thousands of floors! (A major U.S. department store uses MapScale® to digitize their 2,000+ stores every Sunday)
Can I override MapScale® output?

Yes, the final map outputs (in GeoJSON format) can be modified like any other map on Pointr Cloud (map CMS). To learn how to use Pointr Cloud, visit our dedicated Pointr Cloud tutorial for more details.

How often can updates to existing floorplans be sent over to MapScale®, and what is the processing time for those updates?

Updates can be as frequent as daily. We recommend quarterly updates to reduce costs in our pricing proposal, but this can be altered if needed. MapScale® takes about 20 minutes per floor to complete initial processing.

Does MapScale® support auto-mapping updates on a time-scheduled basis or every time a new floorplan is uploaded to a repository via API integration?

MapScale® supports automatic mapping updates: automatically import CAD file changes from the repository upon file changes or on a scheduled basis and convert them to 3D maps automatically via API

How does MapScale® integrate with IWMS/CAFM providers?

API, sFTP, or AWS S3 buckets are supported today to exchange CAD floor plans and/or additional building metadata. We are open to supporting additional formats based on your requirements.

Can my team process MapScale®'s updates by ourselves without the involvement of the vendor team?

MapScale® API can be called anytime, independently of the vendor team. Pointr's mapping team reviews each MapScale® output and might perform manual fine-tuning directly on the maps. Alternatively, your team can do the post-processing independently after the initial process via Pointr Cloud or your CMS platform.
