Maps and Photography
UPO produces several types of maps in hard-copy and electronic form:
8.5 x 11" Campus Maps
Single sheet maps. Because of their small scale, some text can be difficult to read without zooming. Hence these are most appropriate for on-screen reading.
The "Info Map" is an informational map/brochure that includes all of Harvard University's campus in Cambridge and Allston plus a map of the Longwood Medical Area. It is a general purpose map for touring the campus and locating specific sites in and around Harvard. There is also some information on the history of Harvard, the buildings of Harvard and the Longwood Medical Area.
The map shows Harvard and non-Harvard buildings, Harvard greenspace, public greenspace, walkways, and street names. Also provided is an index of Harvard University Buildings, Harvard Academic and Administrative Offices, Points of Interest, Harvard Areas and Street Names with grid locations to aid navigation.
