Not only did Carnival-goers, estimated at 20,000 people, have the benefit of all the event information accessible from their mobile devices through a digital event map there are additional benefits to both the Carnival and Punahou School from having an interactive map.
For the Carnival, the overlay and printed materials also played a role. The overlay created with help from the Concept3D production team from a PDF is now a KML file. Spatially accurate, this master overlay is easily changed for the next Carnival if necessary. Additionally, Punahou printed two 4′ by 8′ posters of the map with the overlay for reference at major check-in areas.
The Carnival is just one way Punahou uses and plans to use the interactive map. The Carnival was part of ‘Phase 1,’ but the next phases include adding virtual tours and more information for prospective students and families. The interactive map is in good shape for the 2020 Carnival, but there is much more in store for the map, virtual tours, and Punahou School before then.
