Subject: [OpenGuides-London] Suggestion for London information
Here is a suggestion for informaion on London. I hope
you enjoy browsing it for
yourselves. Any feedaback about the map apppreciated. If you do decide to include it
within the openguides, please contact me and on our next update I'll add a reciprocal
I have added a link to the page "Sites About London"
The London Map (http://www.the-london-map.co.uk
An interactive map of London with over 100 panoramic photographs of historic
sites, parks and buildings. A virtual tour and sightseeing guide of many
locations in London.
This is free to use and can be run embedded in any site, a great way to
explore the city.
Great! we like content that is free :).
Please take a look as see if you may like to either
use the Tour or link to
it as a resource about London. See The London Map website for the html
needed to use the tour, and examples of embedded tours. For further
information or to discuss layout options please contact me.
What would be really nice is to be able to hook into individual attractions.
Currently, the applet can navigate to attractions only via a search entered by the user.
What we want to be able to do is to pass in something like "Natural History
as a parameter, and the applet loads the appropriate view.
Another function we would like to be able to do is to pass in X and Y coordinates,
either OS Grid or Lat/Long, and for the applet to show us the map with the arrow
in the right place.
That said, we have been looking at SVG, which has a number of facilities:
* Continuous zoom
* Ability to superimpose graphics by layering
* Clickable hyperlinks on the map
