4:07 p.m., Jan. 12, 2012--Pedestrians on the University of Delaware's main campus can start Googling their routes. Google Maps’ Street View feature now includes 360-degree images of UD's Newark campus.

Previously, the University appeared as an undefined block on Google Maps because the service gathered Street View imagery only by cars driving on public roads.  Google took its technology to places cars can’t venture, including UD’s brick pathways, by mounting cameras on three-wheeled pedicabs called trikes.  

Campus Stories

PT STAR

The physical therapy classrooms on the University of Delaware's STAR Campus are adding new dimensions to education for both teachers and learners.

Ice cream finalists

The five finalists have been chosen for the Alumni Weekend's Dela-bration Ice Cream Flavor contest, and members of the campus community get to decide which flavor is the cream of the crop by voting online.

The maps can help visitors and prospective students familiarize themselves with campus, assist current students looking for the best path to class, give alumni a trip down memory lane and all other users an up-close view of one of the most beautiful campuses on the East Coast.  

Check it out for yourself on Google Maps or watch Google’s Steet View trike in action

Those looking for an even more in depth overview of campus, are invited to experience UD’s virtual tour.
