The Interactive Campus Map (ICM), a project of the UCSB Department of Geography, is an online tool that allows users to understand and engage with the campus in a new spatially-oriented way. Some of the many features of the map will include advanced way-finding, accessibility elements, time-aware layers (what cafés are open on campus now?), and of course sustainability.
The sustainability layers of the map will include points of interest (green buildings, garden locations, bioswales), real-time energy data, and even a neat tool where you can find the closest hydration station for filling your water bottle or electronic recycling bin for those old batteries.
We are currently seeking students to help us collect sustainability data for the map (no prior knowledge of GIS required) and students to develop the sustainability map layers (some GIS knowledge required).
