Sant’Anna Institute and the students of Alfred State College are pleased to announce:
As part of its academic programs organized in partnership with American universities, Sant'Anna Institute-Sorrento Lingue organizes service learning projects being practical and very useful for the host community. These are projects that allow students to apply what they learn in the classroom, while testing themselves professionally, and, at the same time, to provide a service to the city hosting them.
This year Sant'Anna Institute has involved 14 students of architecture from one of its partner universities: Alfred State College (SUNY), led by their Professor Jeff Johnston, creator of the project - to realize Sorrento 3D.
SORRENTO 3D is a multi-year project created by Alfred State College professor, Jeffrey Johnston, whose purpose will be to create, on Google Earth, three-dimensional representations of the buildings, the monuments and landscape of the Sorrento peninsula.
Extensive links to street view photos, and to the websites of organizations, institutions and businesses will be included in the project. Sorrento 3D will allow users of Google Earth to visually experience the charmand beauty of Sorrento in three dimensions.
Here are the names of the students who are taking part to the project:
- Bernardo Deschamps
- Carlos Bolanos
