Not much for this week, just deciding a case for which map system to use.
After doing some research, I think it might be a good idea to go with the other suggested map system, OpenStreetMap. I’ll pose my reasons why at the meeting tomorrow.
I think that was all I was assigned this week aside thinking of names!
Starting this week, I will be documenting the work I do for the Group Project (Group 6) while we create our ‘Walking Tour’ app for Android based smartphones.
I’m looking forward to doing it.
My role is somewhere between ‘tech/code’, GitHub guy and a bit of web, along with pitching in on every other task a little bit, the same as everybody else.
My task for this week was to look into setting up Google Maps and plotting locations.
I’ve done this before in a little more detail (see here), so it wasn’t too difficult.
For ease of demonstration, I’ve used separate variables for each location and info boxes.
See the example map here.
Until I’m sure on where we should host our Walking Tour website, I’ve hosted this on my own personal domain. I wish to move this to a more permanent home when I can. Perhaps my Aber Uni filestore public_html at a later date.
