The successful completion of this project would produce an interactive map of the Samford University ([url removed, login to view]) using Google maps very similar to [url removed, login to view] The locations data would need to be read from a JSON file stored on a web server. It would contain information for the info bubbles, geocoordinates, categories, etc We would/could provide the URL/data source and would do content entry. We would want a different icon for each category (7 total).
Map should be full screen and viewable functionable on a tablet. It should default to the 45 degree angle view.
Info bubble should be able to hold up to 5 sentences plus 2 links + 1 image (see Hesburgh Library on [url removed, login to view] for example).
1) Search - the user should be able to search for a location similar to NDs map
2) Categories - instead of overlays, we would like categories. The functionality would work the same in that it would highlight
3) Dropbox of all locations - similar to ND map
I am okay with [url removed, login to view] being used. Other libraries/plugins should be approved first.
One additional requirement. Will add to the details. In addition to the search box, I should also be able to invoke the search mechanism via a URL parameter. The effect is that I could provide a link to the map that highlights a certain building.
