I designed MapPOD as a mobile-first application (before such a thing existed), the purpose of this application was to create an easy-to-use display and purchase mechanism for Space Imaging/GeoEye. Initially, the Flash based RIA used a REST call from ESRI to display the map information at a pre-determined resolution. Because of YahooMap’s Flash API, maps could also be drawn from that source. Area of interest could come from a simple latitude/longitude input or placename data could be populated into dropdown selections from a PHP/MySQL call or an XML file. It is no longer available online.
GeoEye prides themselves as a B2B company but this application reached out to a more consumer-oriented customer base. The GeoEye ImageryStore provided customers the ability to order posters of national parks, landmarks, cities and special areas, such as Area 51.
Technologies used to create this online store were ASP/VBScript tied to Oracle database with Flash and Zoomify. The site is no longer available online.
This website came out of simple idea; how high would a building need to be so a person at the top could see all of Kansas (it turns out to see about 230 miles, the structure would need to be about 3499 stories.). Using GoogleMaps and a few distance finding algorithms, it turned out to be a fun and informative feature.
Customized Nutrition and Exercise is a long-time client who wanted a new look and enhanced functionality to their website. They wanted to be able to update the website easily so I moved them to WordPress. For the site, I added new photography of their new gym space, created a custom recipe function so the owners could share their favorite smoothie recipes and allow users to rate them.
