Map

From Wikidocumentaries
Jump to: navigation, search

The topic is displayed on a map. It is possible to select 4 background layers: Hillshading, basemap, aerial image and a bitmap map. Each of them can be configured. Initially only one per each will be possible. The goal is to allow an option, which will always display the most suitable maps based on scale and topic date.

  • The topic itself as a POI or a shape depending on data
  • Nearby topics (POIs & shapes) // don't show if the topic contains multiple items --> from the pin?
  • Images of the topic
    • aggregated together with the topic and images from the same location item if the location item is displayed
    • aggregated together with images from the same location only if the location item is not displayed
    • aggregated into a single image in greater zoom settings
    • works are displayed as part of image display
    • single image pin may show camera direction

Items in parenthesis are ideas to consider later.

Timeline display

  • (How the timeline and the map display things together. It can be a separate tool, but a simple solution should be available on the topic page as well.)

Search

  • Search location by place name. Aim to include historical toponyms.
