Navigation is a really complex thing to code. Pathfinding is the first thing you'll want to understand. After that you'll want to know how to categorize rooms, inside buildings.

So for example you'll have an algorithm that: Looks for the correct building and the closest entrance-> looks for the correct floor in the building -> looks for the correct room in the floor.

Here is a (very) detailed pdf outlining the process: ase.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/uploads/Publications/ThesisV1.0.pdf
