IDS the 2nd!

Good news! I have finally finished my first IDS of making the 3D model of our school. I have completed building the model, and published it on Google Warehouse. I was planning to post it on the Google Earth program itself, but due to the change in Google’s policy, I wasn’t allowed to. The name of my model is ‘Inquiry Hub’ so if you want to see it, you can search for it. Actually I have been facing some problems in the Google Warehouse. When I first posted it, when I click the 3D view on the Google warehouse, It’s was too small. So I decided to make it bigger and upload it. However, the 3D view doesn’t upload. The size stays the same. I can’t even select the location, so if I click the location, it shows a building in the United States when my building is in Canada. I tried various ways but I can’t seem to change those two… If you are reading this, and you have solution for this problem, please leave a comment below. One more thing is that my vice principal thinks that this alone is not enough to earn me a full credit. This is why I decided to continue this project and overlap it with my next IDS, since I don’t want to be procrastinating my 2nd IDS for too long. I plan is to build the simple version of our school’s inside to be able to show the visitors or new comers the inside structures. I’ll also include the garden of our school. When I’m done with this, I will put this into an Iphone app where the user can use ‘bird eyes’ to look around the school, open the roof, and even see the inside structures.

For my next IDS, I have already posted the basic Idea on my last’s last post. In this post, I’ll post my survey that I’m going to make everyone in our school do to write down their opinions of my app idea. Since my next IDS is the IHub app for all the students in the school, I need to gain their permissions. I just want to say that the IHub app I’m going to make will of course, be a good representation of IHub for others, but is actually meant to be a good tool for the IHub students to use during school hours.

This is the Survey:
