What’s Your Favorite Place at UMass?

Favorite Places Heatmap Display in Google Earth

I finally got around to writing something about an exciting project that I completed last year at UMass (and which I presented at the Google Geo User Summit 2011 in the meantime). This is the crowdsourcing website application where students, faculty, alumni, employees and visitors to UMass can submit their favorite places on our campus.

As you can see in the visualization above, the results are very interesting and reveal a lot about our campus. You can check out the project description below and – of course – find a link to submit your own favorite place(s).
