Map Builder Tool 

This tool will be embedded into our website and will allow any member to create a map, save that map to their profile, and share their map in a map gallery on Working with a designer and cartographer, we are developing the map builder to have a number of basic base maps to choose from (political boundaries, satellite imagery, terrain, etc.) with a toolbar to allow for members to draw, lines, points, circles, rectangles, irregular shapes and text. 

Syllabus Maker & Advanced Search 

The syllabus maker will allow members to construct a course syllabus entirely of GAHTC content. To this end, our web developer will build an advanced search function that allows users to narrow their search by geography, with the search results shown on a 3D globe. Search result relevance will be designated through a heat map. Members can pick items from their results to add to their syllabus or have the system generate a syllabus based on the number of lectures they have selected.
