  1. The 3d images of the buildings from the Bowling campus look unbelievable realistic. It’s very fitting that universities would make use of geo tools since they should be at the forefront of the latest technology.

  2. I agree with the above comment. It never ceases to amaze me at the rate at which technology is advancing.
