The problem to be solved:
The Map.Hackney application is getting old and does not meet current usability standards. It can’t be used on mobile devices. Although the application is very rich, it is difficult to find relevant datasets and to get basic information about them. We are sometimes receiving data requests which users should ideally be able to self-serve.
Although our complete GIS offering needs to be refreshed (not only Map.Hackney but also Find My Nearest, Map Gallery and maps scattered on the Hackney website), we should only focus on Map.Hackney for the moment as it will create the basic, flexible map element that will be reused everywhere else.
Because of experience and reviewing other mapping portals, we have hypotheses about relevant functionalities to offer:
Classical dynamic mapping with layers switch and pop-ups
Layer search, working indifferently by name and by theme
Concise metadata info in one click (with links to data.gov.uk and other resources for more extensive metadata, to be defined in “Serving Open Data” project)
