DéambUL

Would you like to take a walk around the Université Laval campus and discover what it has to offer?  Want to move more efficiently from one building to another (by foot, via the tunnels)?  Would you like to know the different services offered on campus and where the RTC stops are located?

This is what DéambUL offers you, a free Geoapplication that can be downloaded on AppStore or Google play and consulted on a smart phone, which locates you, offers a map of the Université Laval campus and proposes different thematic paths. Come and discover itineraries that highlight certain components of the campus that support sustainable development, discover the public arts on campus, come and examine some of the University’s major research infrastructures, etc.

Credits

DéambUL was designed and developed by UL staff and undergraduate students as part of training courses through a partnership between the Faculty of Forestry, Geography and Geomatics and the GeoStat Center of the Université Laval Library.

Created by: Stéfano Biondo, Marie-Claude Bouchard, Claire Horsin, Suzie Larrivée, Marius Le Marechal, Martin Ouellet, Alexandre Paradis and Jacynthe Pouliot with the collaboration of Marie Dufour, Helin-Subhi Dura, Julie Ferland, Daniel Forget, Martine Lapointe, Alexandre Robert-Tessier, Sonia Rivest, Alain Chouinard (Deux & Quatre) as well as many collaborators for the content of the courses.

Financial support

Université Laval via the Faculty of Forestry, Geography and Geomatics, the Library, the Student Life Office, Mon Équilibre ULaval and ESRI Canada.
