Claremont McKenna College Launches New 3D Interactive Campus Map

The campus can now be explored from anywhere in the world using a state-of-the-art online tool

CLAREMONT, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 8, 2014 — Claremont McKenna College (CMC) has launched a new interactive campus map accessible online through its website. The map can be viewed online at It allows students and visitors to easily navigate and find information about the College’s grounds, buildings and amenities. The online tool also allows prospective students and others to tour the campus from anywhere in the world.

With such a dynamic campus offering so many great facilities and unique events, the College is pleased that it can offer this state-of-the-art interactive map to the CMC community and visitors. The project was spearheaded by Lorraine Wang, CMC’s Director of Web Communications and New Media, and carried out with the help of a team of CMC students, interns and photographers.

The interactive map features detailed three-dimensional renderings of all CMC campus buildings within the larger interface of the familiar Google Maps layout. Users can click on a building or other campus features to read a description, see photos and videos, and find resources for further research online. Printed versions of the map are also located at specially designed kiosks around campus.

The map is optimized for use on mobile devices, making it an excellent resource for new students and visitors who are walking the campus grounds and need instant information. Map locations are sorted into categories, which can be selected or de-selected based on preference. Public restrooms and emergency phones are noted for utility and safety.

The map is also an ideal tool for prospective students who want to explore the CMC campus, but may not be able to visit in person. Users can view 360-degree panoramas of prominent locations such as the Kravis Center, Flamson Plaza, and the Emett Student Center, and can also tour CMC’s many facilities for students, such as the Athenaeum Dining Room and on-campus dorms.

As more and more of the College’s applicants are coming from across the country and around the world, visiting the campus before applying isn’t always a possibility. The new online map allows applicants to tour CMC, even if they can’t actually come to campus – the interactive interface and the level of detail are so thorough, it’s like you’re actually on the campus.

The online map rendering is based on three-dimensional models created by architect Daniel Gallagher and designer Stephen Manka of Gallagher Projects in Los Angeles. CMC partnered with Campus Bird, a 3D interactive map company, to create the tool.

Planned additions to the tool within the next year include a video tour featuring student tour guides, additional photos and panoramas of CMC landmarks, and specialized campus tours for events. The map can be viewed online at
