Jazz up your online campus map

July 3, 2007

Ohio State University’s online campus map has been proposed as a best in class by a list of college and university webmasters.  OSU offers a traditional “drawn” map that labels each building clearly.  It also offers a “Google” version of the map that makes incredible use of Google map and API technology to produce the map found at this link.  In the upper right corner of the image, click “hybrid” and you will satellite footage of the campus overlaid with a Google-maintained street map.  Users can choose what they would like to have displayed on the map, selecting from parking facilities to libraries, and from bus stops to wireless hotspots.  All the graphics are done by Google API.  Campus Technology
