DePauw virtually reconstructs its former campus with geospatial tools

A team at DePauw University used SketchUp to recreate what they believe their campus to have looked like historically, building-wise.  Apparently a challenge because whole buildings have come and gone with little archival imagery captured?  Seems like a good way to involve staff and students in a project that can engage alumni and highlight the fun of flying (Google Earth-wise) around.  Mental images of Harry Potter on his broomstick whizzing past Hogwarts’ buildings.

Nice work, Beth!
