Web Developer (Mapping)
Pennsylvania State University
We require a Web developer with experience working with
mappingtechnologies to contribute to the development of
software for acartographic project
We are looking to replace an existing implementation of WordPress
https://digitallab.psu.edu/projects/mappingbelami) with aplatform-independent
solution, built on open Web technologies. The purposeof
this project is to allow students to add places of narrative
importanceto a map, providing textual and visual content
for reference. Developersshould use the aforementioned link
as an example of project content andbasic functionality.
We require someone with expertise in the Web technologies necessary
tobuild this platform. Pre existing open source libraries
may be used, butall code must be appropriately commented,
and thorough documentationdetailing all modular development
and integration must be provided.
From an operational perspective, the finished development should work
* Students will place data into a structured format
* This data will appear on the front-end map
* As is currently the case, the map must be interactive, allowing for users to click between these points, displaying the relevant data
We appreciate that there are multiple ways to approach this functionality,and
welcome proposals from developers as to how they would build this
tool.The structure should be reusable, so that the
underlying data can bechanged in the future, and
implemented across a number of similar projects.
This is a short-term, grant-funded opportunity.
Any queries should be address to Dawn Childress ([log in to unmask]) and
JamesO'Sullivan ([log in to unmask]).
