Virtual Campus

Virtual Campus is a project that aims to use location-aware information to tell its users where they are, what or who is around them, and how to get there. To track a user's location, the system utilizes client-based software that reports to the Virtual Campus server with which the user's computer is commmunicating. Virtual Campus maintains a rich database of campus events by crawling official and living group Websites and recording probable gatherings. With a geometric map of the campus, it then is able to provide step-by-step directions with distances, orientations, and landmarks (though it can operate without such detail).
