At Cheshire Academy, we are always trying to figure out ways our website can make it easier for international families to get a feel for our amazing 104-acre campus. After seeing interactive maps on other school websites (specifically Quinnipiac University’s website), our Director of Admission found room in the budget to implement a professionally designed interactive map, produced by an outside vendor.

As manager of this project, I researched and vetted companies, drew up a spreadsheet of features, costs, and pros and cons for each vendor along with my recommendations. Campus Bird and Concept 3D were chosen, and from there I managed the group effort to take photos of our campus from every angle to send to Campus Bird for the render. Then I reviewed the map for errors, got the map approved by key stakeholders, and worked with interns to populate the map with pins via the CMS.
