NetMedia Final Project: Ideas


For my final Networked Media project, I will create a website that displays information of the tallest buildings in New York City. I am very interested in geolocation and displaying information from the real world using the web, as a way to visualize and give a meaning to the digital content that can be created and shared in the web, overlapping the physical space.

I want to use different APIs combined to generate relevant information about New York and its architecture. My goal is to use the Google Maps API to create as the main interface and combine it with other APIs like Flickr and OpenWeather to give more functionality to the site. This is a project that uses Javascript only for front-end purposes, although I am considering using server functionalities to create a database and template for each of the displayed buildings.
