Google Map UD
Newark campus featured in Google Street View
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.
Partnership for change
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.
Those looking for an even more in depth overview of campus, are invited to experience UD’s virtual tour.
