Googlemaps extension Edit

With this extension it is hoped that each track page will display a world map with the venue's location marked. Since this is a 1:1 mapping and precision is not very important this semantic annotation will probably be implemented within the template called by a semantic form. This means that a user will not be able to enter a custom pair of coordinates for any of the 16 standard venues.

It may be desirable to have a set of local coordinates for each venue so that a user can "drill down" from the world map view and seamlessly be taken to a tiled map view of the VSK5 created 3D world for each venue. This is a "nice to have" feature that will take a low priority, initially. This should also very nicely side-step the inevitable discrepancies that will exist between the Nadeo created 3D world in which we cyber-race and the real world satellite images that are available via the Google Maps extension.

  • It seems pointless to plot race courses from the 3D world on real world maps derived from Google Maps however it is possible to fracture a composite map of a 3D world into square tiles and then make those tiles behave in the same way that the satellite image tiles behave for the well-known Google Map product. It is not a trivial task but it has been done at one Wikia-hosted wiki before this one.
