GT 3D is a 3D flyover the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Atlanta campus. Basic controls, modeled after video game controller “thumb sticks”, allow you to control the camera flyover of the Georgia Tech 3D campus model. The left “thumb stick” controls the pan and the right “thumb stick” controls the rotation of the camera. These “thumbsticks” can be used separately or together to achieve any aerial view of the Georgia Tech campus. Look for more content upgrades, functionality, and interaction in future updates.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is fantastic! The only drawback is the big banner at the top. If you will make this go away after the first 15 seconds or so, you'll get five stars.
Cool 3D visualization of Georgia Tech!
I downloaded this app to look at the development at Tech since I graduated in 2006. The Clough Commons and other new buildings are immediately recognizable. The buildings and landmarks are very detailed. The controls are easy to use and the navigation is fluid on my iPhone 4S. I hope that the developers add new features such as GPS navigation or building/directory information. I can imagine this proof-of-concept becoming a useful navigation aid for visitors and new students.
It works, but is incomplete
Good for navigation by landmarks, but lacks GPS functionality/navigation, cardinal directions, street names, building names, and a seamless UI. Why have a virtual analog stick to pan when I could just swipe around? This has a lot of potential, but fails to try to achieve it. The models and fluidity of the app are great, but it can be so much more.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
