Below are the known issues with the current map, and the reasons for them. Please send us a comment if you find additional ones.
Missing or Inaccurate Streets
The streets data and images on the maps are provided by third parties through the Google Maps API, and they are not completely up to date or accurate.
The following streets might not appear on the map:
- Intramural Lane, between 26th and 30th streets
- Weatherford Place, between Jefferson Way and Intramural Lane
- Sacket Place, between Jefferson way and Intramural lane
- Pioneer Place, loops around Campus Way just off of 14-15th street
- Park Terrace, near Monroe by KEC, continues off of 25th
Below are streets that are inaccurate:
- SW Memorial Place, between Jefferson and Campus way, should not be a through street
- May Avenue, between 26th street and 17th, is no longer a through street
- Campus Way becomes pedestrian path between Sackett Place and 26th Street
Building Outlines and Satellite Photos Misalign
The outlines of the campus buildings are drawn from data based on the bases of the buildings. Since the satellite photographs are taken from above and at an angle, the result is that the outlines do not match the buildings in the photographs.
Map Colors and Legend Colors Mismatch
The outlines on the map are drawn with translucent colors. This allows overlapping outlines and label text to be visible when there are multiple maps selected. However, it also has the side effect of varying the colors of the outlines on everything "below" it. As a result, the colors in the legend do not perfectly match those on the map.
