A prototype map application I created to explore the technologies available using online mapping such as Bing and Google Maps. So much to see and do in your local community. If only people knew... What, Where, When.


I can see how this could be central to a Campaign.

Town Explorer online Map Demonstrator.

Problem: What, Where, When, How to get there.

A Map Application showing lots of different approaches to showing information on the web.

Solution: Virtual Earth API and Human Created Data

A Map showing my local town with many of the local tourist attractions, walks, shops, transport links etc.
