The Elizabeth City State University is a rural, Historically Black College/University (HBCU) located in Northeastern North Carolina. The campus is easily located through the use of the Google Maps software at, but the identification and location of buildings within the campus has not been undertaken. This project will start with building a database of buildings along with their geographic location, history, departments/programs, and other interesting facts. The database and entry form will be built in MySQL on a PHP server allowing participants to enter data from anywhere Internet access is available. This project will then research applying this data to the Google Maps site to provide labeling and information to users. The database and information will be made available through a traditional web site and a mobile site using HTML5 and be used in conjunction with a mobile web app being developed by a second research team. This project will form the basis for future projects integrating water testing, ice depth visualization, and other projects requiring visualization of data.
