Fort Collins own Colorado State University is one of the largest schools in Colorado, with more than 32,000 students. CampusBird makes it easy for online visitors to explore the CSU's multiple campuses through a detailed 3D map and interactive video, images, interior layouts, wayfinding routes, and other media.

“I’ve been working with campus maps for many years. When we found CampusBird, we knew it was the right fit for CSU,” said Martha Coleman, geographer with Facilities Management for Colorado State University. “Students, parents and staff love the 3D map, and the interactive media draws in visitors and gets them exploring the campus. CampusBird is essentially a map-based information hub that any department can use. We also have plans for creating multiple virtual tours that will profile our bike-friendly campus, our history, our sustainability projects and other highlights.”

Colorado State University launched its CampusBird in preparation for the 2016/2017 academic year, and has used the interactive map software to create a “Move-In Day” map category, as well as to highlight ADA accessible routes and entrances, sustainability initiatives and bike routes. A link to the Move-In Day map was emailed to all students returning to the residence halls before they arrived. The university also has a number of new buildings and facilities under construction, and is using CampusBird to allow campus map visitors to explore the plans with 3D building renderings, flyovers and video.

“We’re very pleased to be working with Colorado State University and to see how their team is already finding innovative ways to use CampusBird for facilities, marketing, wayfinding, transit and other information-sharing needs,” said Gordon Boyes, CEO of concept3D, the developer of CampusBird.
