We’ve covered a variety of universities on this site in the past, such as some amazing 3D buildings at Northeastern University and Bowling Green.
Now, thanks to Darren Davies (@darrendotcom), we’ve become aware of all of the great geo-related tools being used by the University of Exeter.
Some of their creations include:
• An interactive map of the Streatham Campus. Nothing remarkable here, but it’s a very solid use of the Google Maps API:
• An augmented reality browser using the popular “Layar” browser on iPhone and Android:
• A Google ‘mymap’ with 3D content:
• Finally, we have the campus modeled in excellent 3D, including quite a few trees to help add more depth to it:
To view it in 3D, you can view the St. Lukes campus in the 3D Warehouse, view the Streatham campus in the 3D Warehouse, or just fly there in Google Earth using this KML file to see it all for yourself.
What other cool stuff have you seen schools or universities create using Google Earth?
