RFID Deployment Map FAQs

« Back to map

Why did you create this map?
We want to illustrate, in an easy-to-understand way, how RFID adoption is spreading. We believe that if companies see how many other businesses have already deployed the technology successfully, they will be more likely to consider how it can help them improve the way they do business.

How do I zoom in to view more details?
You can either click on a country to zoom in on that particular nation, or click on any area of the map, hold your mouse down and drag over the portion you wish to zoom in on.

How do I zoom out?
To zoom out, you can click either on an ocean, or on the Zoom Out button located in the lower right-hand corner of the map.

Who can post information on the map?
Anyone.

What if a company has deployed RFID at more than one location?
Please enter the company's name and the address of its headquarters.

Why do you need the company's street address? Isn't the city sufficient?
We require the street address in order to display each deployment as a separate dot on the map.

What if I don't know the street address?
If you do not know the street address, please provide as much information as you can, and we will try to find the appropriate address.

Can we link to an article on a Web site other than RFID Journal?
Yes. However, if RFID Journal has already written about that deployment, we will link to our article, rather than to the other site's story.

Can we link to a press release?
Yes. However, if RFID Journal has already written about that deployment, we will link to our article, rather than to that press release.

I submitted a deployment, but I don't see it on the map. Why not?
All submissions are vetted by the editors of RFID Journal, to ensure that the information they contain is accurate. Once our editors approve a submission, it will be displayed on the map. This could take a couple of days to occur.
