Must See Advisor for Kyoto


This article describes a multimedia interactive map developed as sample for the municipality of Kyoto, based on a single HTML page using AJAX, with a client-side control mechanism using jQuery components. The application supports better connections between resources and the places they refer to: the user could select a Point of Interest (PoI) through its multimedia contents using their previews (in a gallery or in a tile window) or their names reported in a list. PoIs—visualized on the map with multi-shape markers using a set of unambiguous colors—could be filtered through their categories and types, accessibility status and time line, thus improving the system usability.
