Tens of thousands of people come to join such events as open campus in universities each year. There are open laboratory and tour programs for school facilities; however, some people can not join the programs if the university restricts the number of the participants. If this is the case, it is most likely to happen that although the participants can get the brochures, they will not be able to reach information they really need despite that they joined the event. To deal with the issue the participants may encounter, we have developed Navigation System for Open Campus, one of the Android software applications. Through the system, participants easily can: 1) see the map of the entire campus, 2) take the direction to their destination, 3) conduct information search for laboratories in which they are interested, 4) read school brochures, and 5) make use of questionnaire.
