This is the first entry / assignment for the class CART 351 taught by Brad Todd which class website can be found on the following link: http://hybrid.concordia.ca/~brad_to/cart351/
After reading this projects description, I tried to break it down into 3 elements that were required. Here are the elements and a few notes of how I interpreted them:
- Cartographic visualization (Visualization of data in some map form)
- Map or mapping (Similar to element 1)
- Participatory element (Interactive element)
The idea I brainstormed was to create an interactive site with all the countries broken up by the continents they reside on. In addition, if time permitted I wanted to integrate the maps of these countries and the provinces and states as well into the system. (Update: Time did not permit me to add these features since it took me longer then I thought.)
One more element I wanted was that all the data would come from a database that way it would be easier to update.
where I used one of their examples as the basis of this work.
