Navigation from place to place is a fundamental human activity and an integral part of everyday life. Wayfinding signage is critical in helping direct people to specific destinations by creating a clear and concise visual path. Vehicular and pedestrian wayfinding signage provides a method for achieving specific signage system goals by showing information at strategic points to guide people into the right directions.

The City of Charlotte Wayfinding Program is an award winning system that is widely viewed as one of the leading wayfinding systems due to its extensive integration. Former Congresswoman Sue Myrick was kind enough to recognize these accomplishments in a letter to each major contributor.
