AvantLogic Corporation
George & Janice at The Art Institute of Chicago where they installed Pathfinder, an interactive wayfinding system they developed. This custom solution uses MapsAlive. It runs on 30" touch screen kiosks in the museum and on the web.
AvantLogic was founded in 1999 as a software consulting company by the husband and wife team of
George Soules and Janice Kenyon. As often happens, one thing led to another and they eventually
developed a product called MapsAlive and later started George Soules photography. Today
George and Janice enjoy using their technical and creative skills in all of these related endeavors.
They work from their home on Mount Desert Island in the village of Southwest Harbor, Maine.

George loves photographing people, but the beauty of Maine inspires him to shoot landscapes as well. "My best images balance realism with abstraction to reflect my interpretation of what I saw through the viewfinder. As a technical person, Im into the gear cameras, lighting, and post-processing software. I use those tools to create my own vision of a person or a scene."
MapsAlive allows you to turn ordinary images into clickable interactive maps. MapsAlive is useful for a wide range of businesses, including the real estate industry, travel and tourism, retail, universities and other businesses.
