Planning an efficient route that leads to several places, i.e., landmarks in a city, where visitors have to queue to enter can be insufficient without an appropriate strategy. Waiting times, the distances to other places, or the number of visitors play as important factors when planning an excursion. The aforementioned information should be considered and presented in a structured way to support users during the decision-making process. This project aims to investigate several factors that influence the waiting time at certain locations and develop a visualization to help users with the route planning and navigation. Our contributions will be, firstly, to provide an adaptive routing algorithm that considers real-time information – such as the number of visitors. Secondly, we will adopt a dynamic map that visualizes the locations and waiting times. Finally, a navigation that dynamically avoids occlusions to the destination by other objects will be implemented. As a proof-of-concept, we plan to develop a web-based application and show the usability of our system by investigating a real-world case such as Tokyo Disneyland. We will underline the efficiency and user-friendliness of the system by conducting a user study.
