Harvard University has several campuses in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the neighboring city of Boston, plus footprints around the state and in multiple international locations. In total, Harvard manages 660 buildings that give its 21,000 students and more than 16,000 faculty and staff access to the university’s renowned working environments.
Stepping into the online world required a reliable 3D hosting service to ensure a great user experience, so Harvard used SmarterBetterCities’ CloudCities, an online 3D web sharing service for cities that is built on top of ArcGIS technology, including CityEngine. It allows users to easily upload 3D models and embed them into a website. Additionally, ArcGIS Online users can directly access their content on CloudCities and share data on smartphones, tablets, and computers without installing software.
