Campus WebGIS Project

The UWF Interactive Campus Web-GIS is a project by the UWF GeoData Center to promote use of GeoSpatial technology and to raise awareness of the geography of our 1600+ acre campus.

Environmental Studies students performed much of the initial work in building the application and anyone is welcome to contribute. The map can run in any major browser with Flash installed. Unfortunately this limits the current version to desktop only.
