Project Description


The use of web-mapping technologies to document, create and develop services that support the use of rich-media and multimedia have been popularised by the proliferation of connected mobile devices and geo-location platforms. Additionally, current standards in HTML have allowed developers to integrate more effectively multimedia and dynamic content into cross-platform services, accessible via Web, Mobile or Tablet.


The assignment is to develop a service using HTML5, JavaScript and a 3rd party API to offer an interactive map of a region in Manchester. The theme and context of the ‘iMap’ will be set by the tutor (see Assignment Brief), but may feature for example:

Historical Locations; New Media & Technology Industries; Nightlife; Tourist Service etc.

The assignment project will consist of the key components:

● HTML5 Interactive Information Map formatted and compliant for Web, Tablet & Mobile Views

● Implementation of 3rd Party API (Google Maps) Platform

● Handling User Interactions

● Use of Rich Media (Video/Audio/Image)

● Wireframe/Storyboard illustrating the layout & UI elements of the service

Students will be required to source and engage in post-production of digital content for the service.

The iMap will consist of two navigable content pages that will feature the key components indicated within this brief:

(i) About page

The landing page provides a textual description of the service, title banner and an embedded HTML5 compliant video with a dubbed audio track.

(ii) Map page

An interactive map with four tagged geo-locations and custom markers. The user will be able to access descriptive/textual information and images through interactive features.

• Cultural (e.g. Museum/Theatre/ Music Venue)

• Historical (e.g. Site/Location of Interest)

• Entertainment (e.g. Nightlife/Cinema)

Students are expected to visit the locations featured within their maps and obtain appropriate content* (Image/Video/Geo-location data) in support of the service. A minimum of one image per location is required and video content captured to be edited into a sequence of no longer than 30 seconds.

*Note: Video & Image content can be captured via Digital Camera or Mobile Device.
