Tourism Maps

Technologies used
  • Cold Fusion MX cfcs and web services
  • Flash MX Professional 2004
  • Action Script 2
I was lead developer for this Rich Internet Application, programming in Cold Fusion and Flash MX Professional. The Flash application overlays location coordinates onto a map of New Zealand. Once drawn, the map provides the user with extensive tools to plan journeys, providing both travel distances and times as well as destination information.

Cold Fusion web services were used to connect to a Postgres database whilst a combination of standard Flash forms and custom interface were used to collect user input.
