Aggie Building Bounty

November 13-15: Build a 3D model of our beautiful campus and win cool prizes while doing it!

How can you participate?

  • Download the TAMU GIS Day app for 2017 GIS Day app for iOS or Android.
  • Visit the Building Bounty Map (on this website or in the app).
  • Find a building that has not been captured yet (for the most points), or pick a building convenient to you.
  • Travel to the building.
  • Indicate which building you are going to capture in the app dropdown list.
  • Walk around the exterior of the building with you cell phone.
  • While walking, take photos every few steps with your cell phone of the building's exterior from ground to roof. The more photos the better, so don't be shy. Each picture counts!
  • When taking photos maintain an overlap of features between photos; an overlap of 80% is optimal. The overlap helps turn your photos into an interactive 3D model.
  • Submit your building data through the app.
