This website is dedicated to the efforts across campus to create 3D models of the current and past campus and to make these models available through technologies such as large screen or head-mounted VR.

The different modeling approaches combined in this project are:

  • Models build exclusively from procedural rules using numerous geospatial databases and environmentally sensed information.
  • Hybrid models in which prominent buildings such as Old Main are modeled with greater detail but contextualized with procedural models.
  • Historic campus models. As a proof of concept, we have created a model for the 1922 campus.
