Today the Vidmap website has finally been relaunched. The service has undergone heavy work on backend and user interface. After discontinuation of Google's Maps Api for Flash it was obvious that all map related functions need to be rewritten in HTML5 and Javascript. This was fun and so much faster to test and deploy compared to previous development iterations using Adobe Flash.

Some of the new features:

  • The entire website now also runs on tablets (iPad, Android tablets)
  • Maps are now round and are shown directly on top of maps, as an overlay.
  • The track editor has been simplified for more user friendliness
