Here is a bit of background on this project. I wanted to develop a GIS application that would:
- Be fun
- Convey the excitement that I feel about GIS
- Be easy for students and faculty to understand
- Contain enough analysis to counteract the notion that GIS is just for making pretty maps (I actually run into this often).
- Demonstrate how effective it is to use GIS processing with a Google Maps-driven front-end.
So, how to pack all this in one punch? The Friday Night Hangout does it all.
A more thorough description and technical details available on the site.
Well, the product is so much more robust now and I am very pleased. With Google Maps EZ, I was even able to add the border of Tarrant County using polylines.
