OT (kind of): "modern maps"


From: Swift, Daniel P.

We're looking to breathe some life into our campus map. Does anyone have any experience with maps where the buildings are svg/satellite images? I'm also interested in maps that don't consume a whole lot of bandwidth. The administration is looking at something like this from the company Campus Tours (link to follow, courtesy of Northern Kentucky University):


Bandwidth on load is over 10M and mobile isn't much better at around 8M and accessibility has a lot to be desired.

Any thoughts/feedback/suggestions for third party map vendors whose product is a great looking map, accessible, and lower bandwidth would be very appreciative.
