Interactive Map Application

Fall 2015

Prof. Amar and the DHi Collection Development team develop an interactive map application that dynamically displays locations from the project archive and associates them with their real-world coordinates on a Google Maps-powered interface.  This interface allows for direct links to the research materials for each location, along with mapping features like geospatial coordinates, color-coded map pins by category, filtered views of the available locations, and zooming/focusing on particular regions from an interactive list of locations.  This map is also enabled to show 3D views of virtual temples (beginning with the 3D Vishnupada Temple, already underway), directly in the browser, using Unity WebGL.
