Wayfinding can be defined as spatial problem solving. It is knowing where you are in a building or an environment, knowing where your desired location is, and knowing how to get there from your present location.

Wayfinding, be it traditional or digital, is so 2010. We get it. Show us how to get from point A to point B via mobile device in literally five text messages. Tell me where the bathrooms are and yes, perhaps I may even like to send those directions to my mobile as well – although our recent work in this space actually tells us something quite different. Initially, digital wayfinding was a one-to-one interactive experience. Users searched a destination and were provided directions to get there.
