How to create an event map

Creating an event map is often a requirement. Here are a few tips to easily create an event map to scale. Challenges on how to make your event more sustainable from a transportation, food, and solid waste management standpoint are also addressed.

A solid Solid Waste Plan is an important tool towards a sustainable  zero-waste event . A good rule of thumb from SWACO, the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio, is to have recycle, waste, and compost bins grouped together and placed  every 30-40 yards. This is not easy to achieve manually. You can use the Spatial Analysis tool in EventMapStudio to efficiently layout your recycle bins.

Automatically generate an interactive event map instead of purchasing and setting up an expensive customized event app map. You can update this map in real time to reflect last minutes changes.The resulting public event map can be integrated to the event's web site and access from desktops prior to the event, or from phones while at the event. It can also be included as an external link in most festival app software. The map can include logo/placement for vendors and sponsors, as well as links to vendors' pages including menus. The map an also include a Event Sustainability link to promote and educate the public about sustainable options and the event's sustainability work.

Add fences, utility lines, and paths to your layout. EventMapStudio automatically keeps track of the length of the lines you draw, and includes the total length for each category of items in your report. To shorten a line, click on a blue dot while holding the alt key.

Create your first event, get to the map location automagically and set your first stage.

The map is to scale. You can generate reports of all the items on the map and generate a custom mobile-friendly public map that can be displayed on your web site or in your event's mobile app and share the map with you vendors or anybody else needing to see it such as the police or fire departments.
