Visual communication is an integral part of the Internet. By using the flexibility of the Web, we can be transported to places we have never been to--anywhere in the world. For this project, I chose to look at one of the places that is near where I live--Princeton University. The University campus is huge, and yet there are so many details in the architecture around campus that one could spend days there just looking at the buildings. I chose to show just a tiny fraction of what I see when I walk through a small portion of the campus.
My plan, since its inception, was to make a web-based image map using this altered map, with “push pins” or dot markers on the map. The user would then click on the push-pin or dot, and a photo will open up in a smaller window, with a description.
By clicking on a map pin, you can see a pop-up detail of what I see when in, near or by a particular building.
