The inspiration behind Walk was that students often head to new buildings or classrooms and it can be frustrating to find the fastest way - this app solves that problem by showing the fastest way between any two buildings on the UT campus! The app will crowdsource the fastest route based on the current routes that UT students take, leading ultimately to real-time data about the best way to get from Point A to Point B.

How it's different from Google Maps: -We provide directions inside buildings as well - especially convenient for the big buildings with dozens of classrooms and no easy way to know where each room is. -Routes through buildings and small trails that Google doesn't document which often end up in faster times than the big roads that Google does use -Integration with class schedules so students will get a notification when their class ends that will immediately start a route to their next class
