Wayfinding Strategy

WayfindingThe purpose of the project is to research and develop a consistent Wayfinding Strategy for Canada’s Capital Region, including design of a pilot project.  The project is to be completed by summer.

What is wayfinding?  It is an information signage system that guides people through a city, campus, or buildings that enhances our ability to navigate and understand our environment.  Because the study will be looking at the design needs and constraints of a system that is intended to offer a solution of how we assist pedestrians in a consistent way to move through the whole region, a wide variety of information gathering is required.
