UNL Tour redesign

Postby acoleman » Wed Jan 17, 2007 3:45 pm

As mentioned in the WDN meeting yesterday, the UNL Tour is currently under redevelopment. Please feel free to add suggestions and / or content to this thread or contact me (Aaron Coleman, Communications) personally.

http://ucommdev.unl.edu/tourmap/
This is the site currently under development. It's obviously rough around the edges, and needs some polish as well as a fair amount of content yet.

http://worldkit.org/
This is the GIS, flash-based app that we're using to plot the points on the current map.

http://www.zoomify.com/
This is the flash-based app we're using in combination with worldkit for the zooming feature on the map.

Brett Bieber has done a huge amount of PHP and javascript work on this project to date as well, so one of us should be able to answer any questions that you may have about how everything is pulled together.

K-State's Map

Postby bwagoner2 » Wed Jan 17, 2007 5:08 pm

I posted about this some where else so sorry for the redundancy. Have you seen K-State's map? Maybe we could get some ideas from it: http://www.k-state.edu/maps/

As mentioned in our meeting today, the UNL Tour is currently undergoing some serious metamorphasis and is nearing a launch date.

If you see a building that is related to your department/college that is missing information (or a point on the tour), feel free to respond to that thread with that text/photo or just drop me an email.

Thanks.

This new map is pretty cool. Some comments:

There are several buildings that the Find box doesn't find, like Oldfather, Seaton, Fairfield, Piper, Raymond, and Heppner.

It's probably worth noting that 15th Street in front of Selleck is one-way northbound.

I've got info on Seaton, stolen from The Scarlet a while back, and various photos. http://www.unl.edu/gradstudies/seaton_history.shtml

I'm sending an email to the developers here so they see these comments. Thanks.

Erin - there's a thread in the quarantine that contains some of your good comments among the dreck. if you want to revive that conversation, please do.

Tiny corrections for building codes recently added to the map:
- Seaton Hall is SEH, not SHE.
- Selleck Quadrangle is SELQ, not C033.
- Neihardt Residence Center is NRC, not RAYH. (RAYH is a subset of NRC; Neihardt is comprised of Raymond, Heppner, Love, and Piper.)

Erin, thanks a lot for finding those discrepancies on the Building Codes. When building the tour, we were working from multiple lists, which may have been outdated in places.

If anyone else finds any issues, feel free to reply to this thread or drop me an email personally.
