Whether you’re looking for Chili’s, the Owa Ehan building or a bike rack, the new campus maps will help you find what you’re looking for.
You may notice that we’ve added a unique interactive feature that lets you tag locations with keywords. For example, people have already begun tagging PG5 with the many restaurants that you can find there like Moe’s and Dunkin Donuts.
The maps are less cluttered, but are still rich with features like:
- My Locations, a custom list of locations to send to a visitor through the “print” or “link” tool
- Layers for buildings, parking, metered parking, bike racks, art/sculptures and fields
- Map view or satellite view with building and street labels
- A robust search engine that utilizes the database and the user-generated tags
Future plans include adding a campus tour layer that will useful for orientation and new visitors. The web communications team is also working on integrating the maps into the new mobile site so you can view the maps on the go.
You, too, can be a part of the creative process by adding any missing tags and by leaving your feedback.
