This project presents a 3D/4D visualization of the campus of the University of Redlands. This visualization will present a computer animation showing how the campus has changed in the past 100 years. This visualization could be used by Public Relations to promote the campus, Facilities Management for resource management, and Public Safety for analysis of evacuation routes or crime patterns on campus. The reason for doing the analysis in 3D/4D is to make it easier for people to visualize the changes in the campus. It is not a static product, but something that people can walk or fly through on their computer to see different perspectives. Advancements in graphics and computer modeling have made it easier to render data in 3D. This makes for a better visual representation of the data in comparison to a 2D rendering.
