Tying a slideshow and a map together?
I have some geographically-tied data, and I’d like to be able to do a slideshow (text and/or images) with a map that highlights the current slide’s location along side it. Anyone seen this sort of thing out in the wild? Any tips on how to make it happen? I’ve seen a lot of examples of maps and texts embedded in the map, but I’d like to have the map below the text/images.
I just got to know the site, just registered and I thing it´s very useful for Journalists following the developement path, or learning to do some DataJ themselves, keep it up! Best wishes, Momiperalta
Just found out about this site last week, and as a journalist who can code, but would love to get into more development work -- why can't I get a django stack to work -- I think this type of site could go a long way toward helping the beginners.
We spent quite a bit of time on the redirection scheme (after one too many times of hitting a link on my phone and getting kicked to some other site's mobile homepage). Given a request from a mobile device, we look for a mobile page first, fall back to a desktop page if one exists, and absent that return you to the mobile 404 page, which has a search box on board.
We also built our own mobile ads framework, which I'm really really happy with. The mobile ads actually seem useful, I think. And we're doing geolocation as well, for both stories and ads.
