Beyond the Buildings: A New Generation of Campus Maps
DPA6 Development, Programming and Architecture
Location: Pavilion Ballroom West
MONDAY, 4:15 - 5:00 p.m.
Campus maps are often monolithic and confined to a single page or section on your web site, and sometimes are even just a link to a PDF. Lee and To will talk about rethinking the whole idea of the campus map, and how to go from a single stand-alone map to a modular, extensible map system, that you can use throughout your web site and build/layer other types of location-based content on top of. For example, a self-guided mobile walking tour of historic buildings, a virtual tour of sustainability features around campus, a landscape/garden tour showing how the landscaping of the physical campus enhances the academic experience. Also: event, parking, and accessibility information; department and office locations. The session will cover strategy, process, challenges, opportunities, and touch on adding HTML5 geolocation for mobile use, empowering campus groups to make their own simple maps, using available community-generated data, and open-source tools.
