Project Description


We would prefer someone from New Zealand or Australia to complete this job.

We are a team of breaking news cameraman in New Zealand. We supply to all the major networks across Oceania, Australia and here in New Zealand.
We roll out to events like the A-team, most of the time arriving on the scene before the emergency services.

We have many news feeds, but we need to make a secure portal where data appears in a fancy bootstrap looking interface.

The majority of our data comes from a MySQL database (as attached "flex [url removed, login to view]") And for each of those addresses we would want to create an Address Book. We would also like to add other data from various XML/RSS/JSON feeds, with alerts to earthquakes and events around the world that spark our interest.

So for each bit of the data it polls from MySQL and any other feeds, an event ID would need to be created. We would like to be able to Search back in time (upto 3 months) for all the events we get info on.

Based on the information that comes in, we would the system to automatically mark events, with criteria, example:

(TITI691, GLEN641) 111-STRU 12 MASON ST NEW LYNN. (XStr GOLF RD/) .HOUSE FIRE. #F1488961

-TITI691 & GLEN641 are the fire engines that are responding to the call out (these match the address book for the address numbers as mentioned above, would also be cool to see call outs related to the fire crews over 3 months)

-12 Mason ST New Lynn is the location off the call out - would be cool to see a link automatically show up for google maps if you get what i mean?

-House Fire is a keyword, and is the message that gets sent to the fire crews. We would want the system to mark it automatically as a house fire, and make the message background/text RED etc. We have many keywords and codes we would want to match.

We have many features we would want to have, such as automatically sending us a txt/e-mail when somthing matches our "newsworthy" criteria

Hopefully you get the idea! We will also pay for monthly maintenance of the system.

I can't go into too much detail in a public place, but if you think you get the idea what we're after please make contact/bid
