The School of Architecture and Cranbrook Educational Community have engaged in a multi-year effort to design, implement and develop a robust CAD-based system that would virtually render Cranbrook , one of America's greatest architectural complexes, for educational, planning and management purposes, into a 3-D computer model. By combining base mapping technology with detailed 3-D CAD-records; infrastructural, horticultural and historical data; novel rendering technologies; and linkages to a variety of Cranbrook databases, the systems will present a ground-breaking approach to conceptualizing and managing community information systems.
