Interactive Campus Map

The first Interactive Campus Map debuted at Imagine RIT in 2011.

Imagine RIT Map

A special Interactive Map was created for the Imagine RIT 2018 festival. It allows users to import or build an Itinerary, get walking directions to exhibits, and features a colorful visual layer that was built to coordinate with the festival print map that is given out to visitors each year.

Much of the functionality was modeled after a 2017 Student Capstone project: RIT Venu.

ITS is proud of our student design and development team, whose hard work and creativity made the Imagine RIT 2018 Map possible.
