Similar to other colleges we've shown you in the past, such as Northeastern University, Duke University has just unveiled their new 3D campus map and it's quite impressive.

With the help of Concept3D, the map has become an excellent source of information for the school. Powered by the Concept3D "CampusBird Atlas" CMS, Duke staff can edit the map and publish new information on their own.

The map includes 3D models of 325 buildings across the campuses. The map also includes satellite views and traditional two-dimensional street maps and offers overlays that display details such as dining locations and parking permit requirements, photos related to the buildings and videos linked to specific campus locations.

The maps are only accessible via the Plugin (no downloadable KML), and you can view the new map here on the Duke website. In addition, the map is fully functional on mobile devices.

For new students or visitors that are trying to find their way around campus, tools like this must be incredibly helpful for them!
