October-November 2018: Main improvements to buildings/campus. Much better/more up to date than Google Maps's version actually in some areas (e.g. removal of Scum Pond, etc)!

August 2019: Major overhaul to campus map, more trees/grasslands.

September 2019: Added all bikeshare locations.

October 2019: Create Mussallem Union Pavilion (still to be named).

November 2019-January 2020: Further improvements and mapping more bike parking spots/trash/recycling bins. (Useful for commuters!) Also added indoor detail inside all res halls (zoom in here: https://openlevelup.net/#16/39.4829/-87.3236). Added eSports Center. Improved walking paths and general accuracy near southeast part of campus.
