One Map to Rule Them All
Unfortunately, I’m getting a 404 error when accessing http://blogs.missouristate.edu/web/2010/10/12/maps-heweb10/
That URL is actually http://blogs.missouristate.edu/web/files/2010/10/One-Map-to-Rule-Them-All.pdf
My server admin just told me the server ate my attachment. It should work now.

I was in this [fantastic] presentation at HighEdWeb 2010. I was interested in getting the source files for the template you’ve shared, but when I tried to download the htm file, it brings with it some clutter, because of how the js alters the page when it loads. I tried downloading with js turned off and that looked a little better, but some things still seemed a little off. Would you have a zip file of the source files we could download, or a suggestion of how to get the files cleanly?
The best way to download the template is to view the source of the page and do a “save as.” There are several related resources, but it’s meant to be a proof-of-concept anyway. There really isn’t a one stop way to download the whole template. I’d rather not repackage those files as the packages tend to get overlooked when updates are made to the template.
No problem, I understand. Thanks!
I attend your presentation at HigherEdWeb2010 and thought it was great.
You mentioned another presentation about bring the maps community together on campus? Or something like getting everyone to play together? Can you tell me where I can find that presentation or material?
Here’s the presentation to which I was referring: http://2009.highedweb.org/EventDetail.aspx?guid=4b3d6b48-9f91-41c0-b547-3e6b405679e7
Hi Chad, as with every great inspiration I get at heweb it’s taken me a little while to get around to working on our campus map. The roads on our campus are not shown on google maps. I am curious about how you did the bike paths on your map. Are they polylines or did you trace them as lines in google earth and loaded them via your kml file? I want to replicate the non-clickable aspect of your bike paths for our roads.
You have a couple of options:
Best option – use Google’s newly released Map Maker tool to actually add the roads to Google’s base map. It might take a couple of weeks for them to show up, but that way you don’t have to maintain an overlay that is only used on your site.
Second option – use a separate KML file for the overlays. This is what our map uses currently while we wait for our bikepaths to be added to the base Google tiles.
Thank you for the info Chad, I’m going to update our roads on Map Maker.
