Printer freindly exhibit hall maps here
Posted by donaldbain

I've redone the exhibit hall maps in B&W in two sizes.  Let me know if there is any problems with them, I didn't have time to proof them.

Excellent, I was hoping it would get done this year, but amazed you knocked it out so quickly.

Last year, you had it a bit differently.  The 2 half maps were landscape oriented, and there was a 4th page for just the vendors.

I've added the old set up to the post with the separate vendor sheet and everything on 8.5 x 11 paper.

The first map (8.5x11) gets clipped on both the short edges when trying to print for me, regardless of the settings I use.  On the left, it cuts off just before 500 and on the right, just after 2600/2700.

I have an HP LaserJet.

I found the best way to print these is to right-click each image and select "Copy Image Address".  Then, open a new tab, and paste the URL into the search bar.  You now have a nice image without all the side stuff, and it should print cleanly.

These instructions work for Chrome, not sure about other browsers, but it should be similar.

Bumping this

This is great!  Now we need a program to take a map and calculate the shortest path to visit all the booths.

No, no, what you need is to be able to input the booths you *want* to visit , and it calculates the optimum route, updating every minute for the unexpected congestion around the booth with the break-out, must-have, hit game,  that guy with the huge  backpack that stops at *every* booth and stands with his butt (and backpack) in the aisle, and all the guys taking pictures of the booth babes modeling corsets.

I know your reply was tongue in cheek but that first part would be amazing and is at least possible.

Listen, if the convention center can get those indoor sensors installed to enable GPS, well....we can build the app that will help you navigate it automatically.  :)

Thanks so much! I'm directionally dyslexic, and I get turned around in there endlessly. Combined with my claustrophobia in the giant crowds, it gets pretty unfun. Now I can mark specific booths ahead of time and make surgical strokes to where I'm wanting to go. Seriously, so much thanks!
