Plassey Panorama Brings Limerick University Campus to Life

Plassey Panorama

Brendan Bolger and I have been keeping in touch for about a year and a half, sharing our interest in podcasting and social media in general. When I met him last week at Limerick OpenCoffee he told me about one of his latest projects, a Google Map of the University Campus in Limerick, with embedded YouTube videos displaying panoramas at different locations.

Every year, thousands of students go to College for the first time. I remember repeatedly getting lost in Galway (never an unpleasant experience!) during my first few days at Coláiste na hOllscoile. What a useful idea!

By the way, Brendan takes part in the next episode of Digiculture, due out later today.

Update: Some other maps by Brendan at Hidden Limerick and King’s German Legion in Ireland.

  1. Now imagine Brendan’s work migrating to a GPS unit. Some people need to see pictures of where they should turn because they cannot use maps. The Plassey Panorama brings a lot of this vision to life well before the video GPS units ever leave the design phase.

  2. I notice Google Maps and YouTube are bnoth popular applications on the iPhone (although that device doesn’t have GPS).

    There – I’ve finally mentioned the iPhone! 😉
