Three-dimensional route maps, which depict a path from one location to another, can be powerful tools for visualizing and communicating directions. This thesis presents a client-server architecture for generating and displaying accurate, usable route maps between locations on MIT's campus. Two exemplary clients of this architecture--MITquest, a web based Java applet, and location-aware active signage--demonstrate the flexibility and power of this model for route generation. Additionally, we provide a framework for displaying a set of campus-wide, public events of interest to an MIT visitor, including methods for inferring events from public sources and automatically selecting events of interest.
