The main aim is to have an AJAX enabled front end for a map, so that is can be scrolled, zoomed and searched in a similar way to Google Maps.

  • Use JQuery for the JS API. This seems to be nicely full featured.
  • URL addressability. Important for linking to from embedded encyclopedia maps.
  • Must work on Android, so can access from tablets.
  • Optional personal view. This shows where a party has been. Needs to be able to add to this area in a secure way.
  • Ability to add notes to locations.
  • Link to Yagsbook encyclopedia for URI enabled named places.

Just a simple single page, directly accessable without prior JSF session.
