[WAYFINDING] New signs are placed

Almost all new signs at the Marineterrein have now been put up. There are a few entrance signs that need added (around 027) or replaced (near 003), this will be done during the coming weeks. As you all know, the building number is the basis for the location of communion members on the Marineterrein, that is why you need to mention your building number at all times (also online, see this post about optimizing your findability).

Wayfinding at the Marineterrein consists of:

  1. map boards at entrances where you can find building numbers
  2. totem poles that indicate public locations and the route of all building numbers
  3. building numbers
  4. entrance signs

Signage by Community members

  1. Community members who share a building can put up signs at the entrance, behind the window according to these guidelines.
  2. Community members with an entire building (Codam, AMS) have been given permission by Bureau Marineterrein to put signage on the facade.
  3. Community members with a public function also have been given permission to do some flexible signage near their entrance.

Outside the Marineterrein

What happens outside the Marineterrein in terms of communication is on your own initiative and in agreement with the municipality.

Event signing

Event organizers such as WeMakeThe.City need to make a request in advance for additional (temporary) signs, flags or billboards during the time of the event. Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam decides if this is acceptable.

[WAYFINDING] Google my business

Wayfinding on Marineterrein Amsterdam is never finished. The area grows and changes continuously. Morover, we have building numbers instead of street names. Next to physical signage, it is very important to optimize findability on Google Maps, this concerns both community members and the Marineterrein as a whole. That is why we organized a Google Map Workshop together with people from Localyse on May 9th.

Download here: 13 easy steps to optimize your listing on Google Maps (tailor-made for the Marineterrein Community!)

Some extra tips for community members

  • Go to Google My Business (GMB) and claim your business. If you don’t, other parties can easily change your preferences.
  • Fill out all input boxes with your business details and don’t forget your BUILDING NUMBER.
  • Put your ‘pin’ close to the actual entrance. If you share the entrance with others, put your pin right next to your neighbours.
  • Check and update your listing on GMB regularly.

Marineterrein @googlemaps 

  • Together with Localyse, Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam has updated the lay-out of the Marineterrein with new walkways.
  • Strategic facilities such as the fitness garden and the porter’s lodge have been added to Google Maps.
  • Next step: gain Google streetview images of (the Marineterrein is not public and therefore not covered by google streetview ).

Students from our MSc MADE program have designed a VR demo in 2 days, supervised by the MIT design team. In the VR demo, you can experience what it’s like to take a boat ride in the self-driving Roboats through the canals of Amsterdam!

We are happy to invite you to experience this VR demo and give feedback on the designs and demo of the Roboats. We have room for about 30 people. It’s very low key, and there is something to drink of course. So, if you feel like it, you are very welcome to join!

Hopefully, see you on Tuesday 22 May at 17:00, at AMS Institute, building 27W, 2nd floor. RSVP via e-mail:
