FOR for the week of Jan. 10 is a maps-based college search site that used 3-D animation to afford a clear view of the details of campuses.

The site uses google maps, and in some cases gives the standard google satellite view of a university or college you are looking for. But for many schools, it has 3-D models of buildings around which you can navigate 360 degrees, with tilting options.

Aside from the visuals, the utility also includes data such as tuition cost, majors, student demographic information, etc. You can search for schools with particular degree programs in particular region, layering multiple criteria in a search.

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
