Week 6.5 – 7

Well I think I may have found a way around the problems my project was facing although it’s not an ideal solution. Basically it will require the mobile device to have or download Google Maps for Mobiles then on our site there will be a “.kml” file that they will download, only very small that contains the location data of the ice rinks or games, once downloaded and opened it will open in google maps with all the predefined locations on it and allow GPS interaction as well as directions etc. It’s kind of a shoddy workaround for the time being but I have a feeling it may be the only way to make the maps work short of rewriting all the work using Flash and even then there is no guarantee it would display correctly on a phone.
