General Questions

What is the CampusBird Integration?

Our higher education clients and partners previously knew us as “CampusBird.”  As we grew as a company, the platform grew to accommodate our clients needs. To include everyone on the growth of our products, we brought everything our higher education partners loved about CampusBird and integrated it all together in the Concept3D platform. Having one platform made our product easier to explain and now we can offer more feature and solutions to everyone.

What assets are required to create a 3D model of my building(s)?

Building descriptions and dimensions, interior dimensions if purchasing interiors. Photographs and videos.

Why is Concept3D better than a Google Map?

Google Maps are great - we use them as a base layer for some of our interactive maps. But just as a base layer. The value and interactivity comes as we layer of platform and your data over it. This allows for customization opening the possibilities for increased value and functionality of the Google Map base.

Why wouldn't I develop an interactive map in-house?

There are great resources out there that allow someone develop their own map but all require skill and time. Concept3D makes interactive maps and virtual tours with the latest in technologies and information accessible without a development team.
