JCU interactive campus maps have undergone a major upgrade

JCU Campus Maps have undergone a major upgrade. The interactive maps can now provide you with directions on how to get from your current location to any location on the map.

Type your subject code eg1000 into the Search Window and the map will display when the classes are scheduled and what times they are scheduled for in a window on the campus map. Select one of the options and a “path” will be drawn on the map showing you how to get from where you are to where the class is being held.

The maps render to whatever device you are using to view the maps. All you need to do is click OK for your location to be made available to the map software. You will never be lost again!
