Moving around the map is quite easy. Just click and hold anywhere on the map, and drag the mouse in any direction to move the map. You can zoom in and out using the scroll wheel on your mouse or by clicking the + or – buttons on the zoom bar:
Clicking the directional buttons above the zoom bar will also allow you to move around the map. The center button re-centers the map to the middle of campus.
With the Interactive map, you can search for any campus building and get information on it. There are many different ways to find what you’re looking for, and all of those ways are located in the toolbar above the map:
Any of those ways to search will ultimately place one or more “pins” on the map below the toolbar. The pin will look something like this:
When the pin is placed, the map is centered on that location, and an info bubble pops up, where you can find information about that building. Clicking on the photo tab in the bubble will allow you to view a photo of the building. Clicking the building name will send you to a different site that contains even more information.
If you are looking to get directions to or from a specific place on campus, first find the building you are looking for. The resulting info bubble will have links to get directions:
Click on of those, depending on whether you want to get to that location or get to another place from the selected one. A text box will appear, allowing you to enter the address of the second location:
If you’re having trouble getting the directions to work, be sure to include the street address, city, state, and zip code if possible. Once you’ve entered your directions and clicked “Get Directions”, a route will appear on the map, and the driving directions are placed below the map. Note that clicking the reset button will also remove any directions as well.
The map you see now is not the only kind you can view. You can still look through Google’s regular map and their Satellite map (with or without road labels). We’ve also added a few different layers for added functionality. There is the Parking service layer, where you can view all of the parking lots on campus and their restrictions. There is also an Accessibility services layer. These all can be selected here:
You can get back to the original campus map by making sure the WMU tab is selected, and that none of the tabs below it are checked, as seen above.
