I am building a website which will create monthly news bulletins of activity in the worlds universities. The news will firstly be presented as a news headline boxes spread across a Google Earth image. Once the news headline is clicked on, a drop down news box will appear containing more details of the news item with a photo thumbnail (this will be a click to expand) and a hyperlink to the university website. I will need templates of the headline and news boxes that I can adjust for size to accomadate different lengths of news stories. Only one news box will be open at any one time.
As well as the university information there will also be information on some of the more high profile colleges around the world. This information will be presented in the same format as the university info. The college information will appear when a 'college button' is clicked. Instantly the university headlines will be replaced with college headlines which will appear across the Google map. A university button will take the viewer quickly back to display the university information across the map image. The 2 screens will be interchangeable at a click of the button.
The headline box will have a pointer which will need to remain fixed in position on the selected university town or city whilst the earth image is zoomed in and out.
In locations near the bottom or the top edge of the map, such as [url removed, login to view], we will need to find a way of showing the news box but without the box going off the edge of the map.
Some development work has been undertaken and this has utilised Joomla with a Sobi2 directory and Geocode Factory map [url removed, login to view] aspects of the site are being completed by others. This job is about creating the headline boxes and drop down news boxes and ensuring they function on the Google satellite earth image.
I have included 2 attachments a) World headlines b) Opened news box
If you would like to apply please do not send a generic CV. These will not be considered. I would need to see examples of work you have completed on Google pop ups.
