]init[ designed and implemented the Brandenburg Business Guide map application based on Drupal. The website uses the OpenLayers map framework and search provided by Apache Solr. The data is kept up-to-date through fully automated import processes.
We will present the main steps taken to get from client requirements to the final deployment.
About the project:
The portal features an interactive map providing a comprehensive overview of this business location in the heart of Europe. www.brandenburg-business-guide.de/en offers a quick guide to interesting investment locations, funding opportunities, suppliers, and research partners for all the state’s regions.
Visitors to the platform have access to around 95,000 geodata points and editorial documents intelligently linked to original map data from the State Survey and Geospatial Basic Information Brandenburg agency (LGB). The interactive map allows users to drill down into the data through a variety of map modes and a powerful filter system. The map has been enriched with editorial content, for example topic dossiers, statistics, 360° panoramic images, photos and videos, as well as contact data for regional ZAB consultants. All content can be added to a ‘digital briefcase’ and later printed out.
