Connor Christofferson '18 worked with the Data Visualization and Mapping Center to develop a version of Skidmore's campus map to help Pokemon GO players find important stops on campus. Pokemon GO uses GPS location services during gameplay and associates key campus locations with Pokestops and gyms - a major part of the game - in the app. 

Pokemon GO players are encouraged to share screenshots of their adventures using #Skidmore on Twitter and Instagram.
