    Tourist Nav System Using MapObject and VB Tourist Nav System Using MapObject and VB Presentation Transcript

    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr [email_address] [email_address] Tourist Nav. System for Downtown Columbus,OH GS 634 Winter 2009
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr Tourist Nav. System for Downtown Columbus,OH
      • Overview
      • System:
      • shows user his location/destination address
      • provides information on *POI (open times and rates, admission fees, etc)
      • supports basic buffer and select queries
      GS 634 Winter 2009 * Points of Interest (City Tourist Locations)
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr Draft Design of the System
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr Final Design of the System
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr Sections: Final Program
      • Menu / Navigation tools
      • Address Search Area
      • Point of Interest quick search
      • Main Map
      • Export Utility

    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr System Features 1. Address Search Location Address Destination Address 2. Buffer Search of Points of interest Buffer Zone Search Results Attribute return
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr System Features 3. Interest point quick search Search result 4. Map Navigation Tools / Print Attribute return (A) Zoom in Zoom out Pan Print Zoom full extent *Identify tool (B) Drag mouse on overview window to implement zoom in main map Main map extent in blue
    • Ebenezer Odoi Jr System Features 5. Identify Tool Identifies all features within 3pixels (Screen.TwipsPerPixel) Attributes of identified feature(s) If image path exists in Attribute table display it.
    • System Benefits:
      • Address location search
      • Ability to create search buffer to locate nearby points of interest.
      • Quick nearest Point of interest discovery for Planning trips
      • Identify locations within a locality and accessing both attributes and images
      • Printing and map export to image file capabilities
      Developed with VB6.0 and ESRI MapObjects 2.3 for Windows OS Platforms (as a standalone application) System :
      • ( Minimum Specs to run system) 1. 700MHz CPU 2. 128mb RAM 4. 15” monitor 5. 32 mb video RAM
      Base data used are Tiger 2008 Road files and Franklin county Point Location Data
    • Conclusion
      • During the implementation of this project I’ve become familiar with Visual Basic, Structured Query Language (sql) and ESRI MapObjects Developer tool.
      • MapObjects will be great for small-to-medium sized agencies but extending the basic system functionality needs a lot of programming experience(and effort)
      Experience Obstacles
      • MapObjects is outdated and ESRI provides limited support for developers.
      • Limited References available for programming “newbie's”.
      Ebenezer Odoi Jr
    • Suggested Future Advancements of system:
      • Increase the number of points of interest
      • Add more complex queries
      • Buffer multiple addresses and select common region
      • Add downtown bus route and bus stop information
      • Include bus routes in routing for users of public transport
      • Create Hyperlink to web homepages of points of interest
      • Create shortest path tool
