Campus Streetview is online

Walking inside a virtual Forum, Bongerd and Leeuwenborch is what you can do since yesterday. The Streetview application for the campus is ready.

During the last annual introduction days, hundreds of students lined up neatly on campus to make a photograph each with their cell phones. These images have now been gathered together to form a 'street view', similar to the Google version. With the Facebook application, an online tour can be made through the Forum, Leeuwenborch, Bongerd and the routes in between.
With this - according to the makers - first Student Street View, Wageningen University embraces the world of the social media. And it's doing quite well. In a way. To view the application, you are required to first 'like' it via Facebook. Not exactly no-strings-attached. However, the film on the-making-of can be viewed on Youtube.
For the time being, we haven't found any funny or obscene images. Who has?
