In a bid to assist students, staff and visitors to find their way around our campuses, a map application has been developed by the Department of Computing Sciences in conjunction with ICT Services.

The app – called MapBuddy, is a web-based application which uses your device’s location settings to determine where you are and gives you a list of venues on each of our campuses to select as your destination. You simply select the campus, select the building and ask for directions – an arrow will then indicate the easiest way to your destination.

This innovative app was developed by PhD student Amir Saleh Zadeh along with two second year students, Rudolf Oelofse and Neil Brand. Once the maps have been downloaded on your first use of the app, the data usage is very low; however, most of our campuses are covered by Wi-Fi which will enable users to access the app freely.

The app can be accessed from http://mapbuddy.mandela.ac.za
