I want to develop a desktop application like google earth. I have heard that google earth can provide complete maps of a country in api form. I want to focus on Pakistan. I want my application to show pakistan map.
In my company there are different sales centers, distribution networks, offices, distribution channels etc. I want my application to search different cities and to show which of the above mentioned centers are in that particular city in the form of nodes.
The sale centers or any other center will be represented by nodes on the map. If we want to zoom in any city I can do that and then all the sale centers in that particulr city should be visible. If i click on the node, copmplete detail of that node i.e. sale centers should pop out.
There should be a task scheduler as well, on which i can write notes about any node. There will be different nodes for different sort of offices, factories and sales ceter, there should be a button for all three of them, if i click offices then only the nodes which are representing offices should be highlighted in the map.
I want the map to be zoomed in like it happens in google earth. The project has some other interesting aspects, which will be discussed by the short listed candidates only.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
I am open to ideas.
