There are several ways in which maps can be used.
- Topic's map: Map component for a single topic displays everything the user collates together on the map
- Map display option for any component in addition to a gallery and a list. There will be additional options further on.
- Map-based wikidocumentary for a given topic, displayed in the header section.
- A wikidocumentary usually touches on many topics, and there must be a topic-independent place for displaying them.
- Map-based discovery interface on the top level.
- Location display in each image metadata view.
Map component for a single topic displays everything the user collates together on the map
- Initially display the topic on the map as a pin and/or an area
- Zoom extent to be figured out for a single pin
- View nearby items / images
- Display images or a selection on the map
- Display external data and raster sources (historical maps) as layers > More ideas on configuring this needed
- Display items from any of the components on the topic's page
- Add timeline to the display
- Configure base map
- Export map
Map display option
Map display option for any component in addition to a gallery and a list
- Option in the display menu of items that have geolocation data
- Single point, lifeline (start–end) arcs, aggregates for multiple points
- Facet items on the map based on their properties
- Add all or a faceted selection to the topic's map
Based on frames that consist of several parameters
- Coordinate location
- View angle
- Time value
- Visual media
- Coordinate info for overlays (on the map background, in 3D space)
- Medium (video, image, image series, image pair)
- Headline & subheader
- Fixed timeline throughout presentation, such as a narrative
- Fixed timeline over one frame
- Soundscape loops or generative soundscapes
- Effects, synchronized sound
- Map settings
- Map style
- Frame display triggered by GPS info
- Dynamic output
- soundscape, colours, alternative content
- depending on data
- proximity to a coordinate location
- weather data
- time of day, time of year...
- Base map, configure
- Available local map services, use data collected in OSM
- Terrain, configure
- Orthophoto, configure
- International services
- Local providers
- Historical map, configure
- Always best suggestion based on time and scale
- Select/search from available maps
- Configure menu and services
- Menu controls
- Transparency slider
- Toggle visibility by clicking
- Configuration button opens configuration modal (TBD). Each layer has one map initially.
- Layers can be rearranged
- Bottom layer is opaque
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
- Nearby images (directional POI + image icon) // don't show if the topic contains multiple items --> from the pin?
- Events and routes (timeline locations, journeys)
- (Data, configure and search)
- (Other topic, configure)
Items in parenthesis are ideas to consider later.
- (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 location by place name. Aim to include historical toponyms.
