New campus map unveiled
Skidmore has launched a new campus map system, made possible through a partnership with Concept 3D, a business owned by alumnus Oliver Davis ’90.
Visitors may use the new map to view the Skidmore campus from locations far from Saratoga Springs. The system includes a beautifully illustrated overlay of the campus and 3D models, as well as custom interior and exterior panoramas of campus buildings.
The new system features a Google map-based program, with features such as streetview, custom locations, directions to campus and individual buildings.
Among the key features of the map are the following:
- the system is tied to Google, making custom directions to the campus and/or individual buildings easier to create. The inclusion of Google streetview will enable the choice of selected paths around campus.
- options to select/de-select various locations around campus such as academic and administrative buildings, arts facilities, athletics offerings, residential and dining facilities, locations where the Skidmore card is used, and general points of interest.
- he ability to share locations inside a website or to e-mail a link.
- an array of images, including photos of each building, interior and exterior panoramas, and satellite view.
- search function and mobile options also are available.
The new map is an update in technology that replaces an older Flash version which lacked the latest in campus improvements, including new student residential facilities.
Andy Camp, director of web development, called the new map a “fantastic addition to our online resources” and expressed thanks to Davis and Andrew Hughes ’90 for their commitment to the project.
