    Abstract

    Our research is concerned with the development of a mobile and pervasive application for in-building navigation that can effectively support visitors to complex building architectures, such as institutions, where they are limited to using traditional static signage or asking building occupants for directions. However, although limitations persist in such environments compared to outdoor locations, where applications such as Google Maps are accessible cross-device and provide users with navigational knowledge prior to arrival as well as en-route, ongoing research and advances in pervasive systems are enabling new possibilities and changing how users receive in-building navigation support. In this paper, we present requirements for a set of tools that support the development of such an application based on insights gained from five separate formative user studies with 39 participants and also by reviewing other available tools.
