Hi, I was really impressed with your interactive map and they way in which you managed to get it to filter. How easy is it to do something like that and doesn't google complain?! I am actually interested in doing something similar for my site. I hope you don't mind if I ask a few questions...
How is the data inputed for the filtering? Is it done through google (i.e. are the properties able to be found doing the right google map search)? Is the filtering information easy to maintain on mass? For example, if half of those properties were sold, how long would it take to update the map?
I would love to hear how you did it!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a frenzy of excitement when I first moved here sometime in '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
