Each month, SKIING Magazine publishes two "Inside Line" ski maps. The maps give users the opportunity to enjoy the resort "like a local" by providing tips on where to ski, what to eat, where to stay, etc. We would like to take these maps onto our website, [url removed, login to view], and make them more interactive.
Design: We will provide preliminary comps of the first map and all other maps (10 total), as well as all content, links, etc. to be included in each map.
Functionality: Very Basic. Click on hot spots of map and a pop-up will appear explaining the specific location on the map and also suggesting a particular piece of apparel suited for this environment. Example: As users scroll over the terrain park, a small pop-up window will appear with a caption such as, “For more freedom and movement, hit the terrain park with the soft shell by Gore-tex."
We would also like to include a weather feed in the map, showcasing current conditions at the location (free feeds from [url removed, login to view] are perfectly fine). Also include "download as PDF" with map reformatted as an image on top and all text below (single page).
Attached below, please find initial comps from a previous designer.
