We are building a new website. The site will be similar in features to - http://locations.splocs.com/
Project Scope: The project is to develop a website called the “WaterSportMap”. The WaterSportMap will be a tool for water sport athletes looking to gain more information on different water sport locations around the globe. The site will be similar to the existing site www.splocs.com but limited to the following water sports…Surfing, SUP, Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding, Bodyboarding, Bodysurfing, Open Water Swimming, Water Skiing, and Wakeboarding. Included in the site will be a social media element to help build an online community of local ambassadors for each water sport location.
How it will work: The home page will feature a Google Map; when a user clicks a map marker they will get a pop-up giving location information. Included in the pop-up will be a link to more detailed information about the selected water sport site. This will include the following user supplied information…
Zip or Postal Code:

Currently we use Homestead as our website platform. If possible, we would like to continue to use Homestead for the easy to use design features. Homestead is limited to HTML. If needed, we would consider changing to another platform or linking to another platform for the database connectivity.
We want to maintain complete ownership of the site and we will require a password protected Administration Page.
All user submissions (including photos) for water sport locations should automatically be entered into a database. From the Administration Page, we want to be able to approve any submissions (including photos) before they are able to populate the map/website.
Watersportsmap.com and watersportmap.com are registered domain names.
We have created a basic version of the site at… www.watersportmap.com. This basic version is not database driven. The finished website should be completely database driven.
A facebook account has been created called the World Water Sports Mapping Project that will plug-in to this site.
Please let us know if you have any more questions before confirming your bid.
