A La Carte

This project was one of my first non flash interactive projects of considerable scale. I relied on the Google maps API to incorporate multiple large scale historical maps overlaid on top the google maps. This allowed users the ability to zoom into different sections of Quebec City and see how the city changed over time using an opacity slider to see changes. By clicking on different colored themed pins on the map visitors could explore deeper into stories and historical information about htat locations. We also worked with two high school classes that filmed neighbours and relatives telling stories about different locations to become a rich oral history project. H
