MapWiki v3.0 in Action

Chris Glazier, Valery Hronusov

New page http://villagegis.com/clients/syracuse/syracuse_PI.html is available.

Public input can be tracked using Google based mashups and GEmap. This page can be used by users that are "Logged In" or Anonymous Users, and data can be monitored and maintained by application administrators. The display is fast and easy to use. Events are categorized and placed by pulldown menus and custom icons. Web users can see placemarks, categorized by type and all events are assigned to a unique city domain in the database. Time animated KMLs can be generated from displayed data and sent to Google Earth.
Commuters, residents, officials, tourists, businesses, and others can add his placemarks (points, lines, polygons) along with event info. A Time stamp is automatically added and can be display in KML time-animation in Google Earth. The Map display can be changed to use Map, Satellite, Earth 3D mode functions (with GE plugin).

Mayors and City Councils can track, visualize and display information concerning community complaints, comments or concerns, with user contact information or without. Data can be retrieved via GeoRSS Feed.

Administration accounts can upload KML data as an overlay. Data from our maps also can be used as KML overlay. New functionality with the ability to upload multiple KMLs and joins is anticipated. We can join cities maps into level of state.
There is a very large potential for this web functionality as Public Input is often a major factor in the success of Regional Development or Transportation Projects. Public opinions require tracking and analysis for assuring best outcomes and acceptance.
