Feature: geo mashup

  • Bolagskartan.com – slider customization

    This business directory wanted to combine Geo Mashup’s built-in category filters with a custom slider to filter businesses based on a custom field. This required some additions to Geo Mashup’s javascript API, which will be included in the next (1.4) release. The slider filter has minimal effect at release time, but should become pretty fun […]

  • Laini’s Little Pocket Guide – Geo Mashup with Street View

    A small Geo Mashup customization for Laini’s Little Pocket Guide adds a link in the info window to Street View where it is available. Street View is loaded over the map, similar to Google’s interface, with a close button up top to return to the map. This is good stuff – some of this code […]

  • Trakkers

    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 […]

  • Islands of LA

    This art project based on the concept of traffic islands as public space uses maps as one of many perspectives on the subject. Fairly standard Geo Mashup customizations are used in creative ways to produce engaging interactions. For a project with a limited budget, you may find it difficult to stop browsing, even if you’re […]

  • No Impact Project Event Map

    This is a simple presentation of events on a map, with a fun spotlight effect for highlighting a particular event. Geo Mashup needed some significant work to associate a date with a post location – a feature that will now be included in the next release. The No Impact Project promotes a new book and […]

  • Network of Ensemble Theatres

    Teamed up with Vernal Creative again, we put Geo Mashup to work mapping and listing the theaters that belong to this organization. The presentation is simple and effective, but it also exemplifies the way Geo Mashup makes WordPress into a GeoCMS. The map is really a map of WordPress pages, but in this context a […]

  • Red Bull Air Force Altimeter

    I worked with visionsmith.com to use Geo Mashup to manage the geo content of this team of skiing, skydiving, BASE-jumping, paragliding maniacs. This site makes especially good use of Geo Mashup’s full post display and tabbed category index to create a highly interactive map for exploring the content of the site.

  • RSF Social Finance

    This site by Vernal Creative has worldwide projects organized into categories and subcategories. The challenge was to display these in tabs based on category, then post listings based on subcategory, where the post listing link would open its marker on the map. Our success gave Geo Mashup a cool new control, the tabbed category index, […]

  • HOLZ und EISEN

    This is one of my favorite Geo Mashup customizations, a compendium of guerrilla-style golfing locations in Germany. There are some features here I haven’t done anywhere else, like the maximized info window and interactive paged location list in the sidebar. You don’t have to speak German to have some fun playing with this one, while […]

  • Private Islands Magazine Map

    This was a small project done earlier this year, one of a few instances where I was hired to customize the content of the info window. That work eventually led me to the idea for the info window template feature, which puts this kind of result within an educated user’s grasp. The newer interactive legend […]
