Abstract: Universities all over the world have many buildings and facilities distributed inside and outside of their campus location, and they are used by students for different reasons such as academic, entertainment, services, etc. These may include faculty buildings, cafés, libraries, restaurants and others. For newly registered students and even current students, locating the location and the route to a certain facility is a troublesome task. This task is even more difficult for foreign and non-local students. Therefore, taking into consideration the advantages of digital guiding and navigation systems over static paper maps, a system was developed in order to guide students to facilities both inside and outside the university campus. This paper introduces the stages of development of such systems and their main features. In addition, the search operation and locating the shortest path to any place of interest are also described.
