Edinburgh Maps

The Edinburgh Maps project proposed creating a web interface to allow the generation of a web map for inclusion in a project page, MOOC, event webpage etc. The project makes it easier to include interactive maps in websites and create a consistent, customised look to those websites. The initial App has been designed with the needs of the MOOC manager and participant in mind. It is simple to setup and configure and it is easy for the participant to add and view information on the map. We are currently reviewing it with colleagues in Information Services (at the University of Edinburgh).

In a related project we looked into the production of inexpensive, detailed indoor 3D maps of university spaces with a view to conducting an inventory of accessibility. The findings indicated some potential which requires further investigation.
