This is one of a couple of projects I’ve been working on with Dr. Sorin Matei at Purdue University. The website is related to content in print books, with Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days illustrating the launch. Geo Mashup maps represent locations in the book, which contains print links that can be scanned using a cell phone camera. I did customizations on the maps, and added a radius search to Geo Mashup with a companion plugin that enables radius searches from an Ubimark iPhone application. Fun stuff!

Some time has passed since I worked with WordPressDevelopment.com on this site for athletes using the Trakker GPS system, but I see the site has since gone live. This was a heavy customization involving a modified Geo Mashup 1.2 and ExtInfoWindow library. There are a lot of little visual treats awaiting visitors in the various maps on the site. Other challenges were highly specific templates – the info window in some global maps behaves differently than in similar maps on other pages. I learned some good things that will increase the flexibility of Geo Mashup in the future, although I still don’t have an easy solution to things like visually customized info windows.
