About StackMap

StackMap can map any space and provide way-finding tools and digital browsing to help your customers and visitors find what they are looking for and see everything that your space has to offer. Our Collection Mapping product connects directly to your library's catalog or discovery layer and provides users with a map and written directions directly to the desired item. Librarians can also update maps when items move around using the easy-to-use dashboard if they are planning collection moves as well as building renovations.

Our Explore product enables users to browse your library's physical space and resources on a kiosk, tablet or website. It is useful for locating sections of the collection by subject as well as for locating any place, space, or room within the library. Our Computer Availability Mapping product allows your users to see which computers are available at a given time while also highlighting any specialty software and hardware. The digital map can be embedded anywhere: digital displays or websites. IT and librarians can track usage patterns for informed decisions about their technology. Our Room Mapping product helps your users see where rooms are located in a facility: study rooms, lecture halls, conference spaces, offices, and more. We offer custom integrations to enhance your existing reservation systems as well as other online tools.
