Wayfinding Systems

What does ‘Wayfinding’ mean?

‘Wayfinding’ is another term for navigation. The idea behind a wayfinding system is to improve an area by guiding people to and from their destination via an easy-to-understand wayfinding system.

A wayfinding system can be more than just the signage itself. It can also include:

When a wayfinding program has been developed properly it helps users:

  • Know their location
  • Identify their destination
  • Choose and follow the best route
  • Recognise when they have arrived at their destination
  • Return safely back to their starting point

The main goal of a wayfinding system is to help achieve all the accessibility needs of visually impaired people and other special user groups.

A wayfinding system can help visually impaired users, disabled people, and other groups of people accurately navigate a number of different areas such as schools, hospitals, shopping centres, public bathrooms, downtown areas, and public spaces.
