MAP FILES & REQUIREMENTS
Engrain can create your interactive map using an existing high-resolution marketing map as the background or using any visual of the property that shows each floor plate and the individual units.

If using a high-resolution raster marketing map as the map background, for example: .JPG, .PNG, .TIFF, ideally the map:

  • Must clearly show locations of all units within the asset
  • Must be at least 2,500px by 2,500px
  • Can not contain third party company logo or branding*
  • Should not require frequent updating
  • Must be one single background image
  • Floor plates must not vary drastically throughout levels

*In some cases Engrain can modify an existing map.

Ideal files for encoding a map would be vector based, allowing our designers to quickly format and code the map. For example, vector file formats include: .AI, .EPS or an editable .PDF.
