The Webmap section is intended to
collect travel related applications and items together in one place. For
the moment, this means two things:
- The Webmap
- Memorable Emails
The remainder of this page is devoted to the Webmap. The Memorable Emails page can be accessed by clicking on the above link.
Webmap (under construction)
The Webmap is an interactive image, that allows indicators to be placed
at a certain longitude and latitude on the map. The idea stems from the
fact that many people I know are in exotic places around the world, and it
would be nice to get some feel for where everyone is and how they are
The map is courtesy of the United
Nations Cartographic Section, and is actually much more detailed than
this image would suggest (I saved it in a low-res format so as not to make
viewing it a pain).
Use the menu at left to add a name at a given latitude and longitude.
At the moment, this section is more about what is going to happen. Hopefully,
I will get a MySQL database up and running on the website, and this database
will store the people/co-ordinate information. When the page loads, it
will access the database using PHP and display the results superimposed
on the map. At the moment, I'm not quite sure how to achieve this, but
with any luck I'll find out soon.
