AFR 320c Landmark Map
Welcome back from spring break! My first assignment is to create a landmark map for the AFR 320c course. My supervisors for this are Maddy Kaniewski and Elizabeth Camilletti.
Maddy and I decided for me to create this in Google Maps My Map creator. This would allow me to have direct access to the Google Maps locations, and the icons that they provide. It is also a suitable tool as you can embed it in other websites – in this case, we are embedding the map in Canvs.
My first draft looked like this in Canvas:
Both Elizabeth and Maddy felt the colors were too dark, and also wanted to see street names to better identify the locations. I played around with the templates offered by the software and came up with this:
The map is interactive, and when you click on an icon it shows you an image of the location as well as address if there is one:
You can also zoom in and out pretty much infinitely, making it easier to input quite a few landmarks:
This draft of the map was finalized, and will be used in the AFR 320c course!
