Atlas is a web-based pathfinding framework designed for finding the shortest path between two locations. Using a component based approach built upon Facebook’s flux architecture, this framework will be useful in many applications where pathfinding is needed, such as university campuses, airports, museums or hospitals. The framework provides modeling tools to turn digital maps into a routable representation of the location to assist users in navigating unfamiliar places. A toolkit allows developers to select features they would like to include, such as operation hours, handicapped routes, or a directory listing. This application is deployable on any web compatible device, such as a desktop, smartphone, tablet, or kiosk.
