As it turned out, finding the places that really matter to people on a campus wasn’t just for UMass. Smith College now has their own “Favorite Places” app. Implemented by Jon Caris, director of the Spatial Analysis Lab at Smith, this web app now allows anyone at Smith to share their experiences on and around their campus.
The “Favorite Places” web app was originally developed by Alexander Schreyer, Senior Lecturer in BCT, to help with the UMass master planning process. In the meantime, it has been made available freely as an open-source project.
