Travel Wisconsin

A complete overhaul of the Travel Wisconsin tourism site.

TravelWisconsin.com
Client: Wisconsin Deptartment of Tourism
Launch Date: January 30th, 2007
Agency: Hanson Dodge Creative

My Role: My primary responsibilities for this project related to developing semi-static site templates using ASP.NET Master Pages, and working with the back-end application developers to integrate the data and display layers to bring them to life. I also coordinated the Google Maps integration.

Technical Summary: The site was built with ASP.NET, using SQL Server and web services for data storage/retrieval. The majority of my time was spent developing the XHTML/CSS/Javascript front-end. I was also responsible for figuring out and implementing a way to use Google Maps to display thousands of travel items within the State of Wisconsin. Ultimately this required building a custom algorithm for grouping geographically related points on the map as at that time, Google Maps didn't offer that functionality.
