An application developed by students of the Catanduanes State University’s College of Information and Communications Technology (CICT) has scored a first when their CSU Campus Explorer app gained the nod of Google Playstore last October 2018.

Conceptualized as part of a project study as one of the course requirements, the app made by five students taking up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BIST) last October 2018 is now available for public use.

In an interview, Kevin D. Kozma, together with Andrea S. Morales, Arjay O. Tabirara, and Vincent Ryan A. Valeza, revealed that the application is now out for use in mobile gadgets using the Android operating system.

The project, entitled “CSU Campus Explorer: A 3D Virtual Campus Android–based Navigation System,” was likewise accepted for oral presentation by the CICT faculty panelists led by its Dean, Prof. Maria Concepcion S. Vera, and Prof. Aster Vivien C. Vargas. The group’s project adviser is Prof. Ramona Michelle A. Magtangob.

However, Kozma explained that the application would not be adaptable to those using iPhones and similar Apple gadgets.

He said that once the user enters the application, he may opt to venture into CSU in virtual mode and access the insides of the university through windows, such as “Enter CSU,” View Map,” “Directory,” Offices,” Colleges,” and “Facilities.” Upon pressing any of the windows of choice in the application, he will be guided by the salient information contained therein, including photos.

Kozma bared that the application has user interface features, providing the client with mini-map that gives the user a 2D flat view of where the character is navigating within the campus. It also comes with a view map, which provides linear direction that will be accessed either by selecting “on foot” or “riding” mode of travel and many other virtual features that offer useful and unique CSU campus familiarization, departing from the traditional printed billboard posted on the campus premises.

The application opens the university to the virtual, highly networked age where information could just be reached “by the palm” anywhere, anytime.
