The aim of this prototype is to allow users to explore the data available from the War Memorials Register, whilst also providing the opportunity to discover more about the places and people by uncovering links with IWM collections items and from other resources such as Flickr and Europeana
The approach to get this far was as follows:
v0.1 initial prototype February 2016
Template The site uses the Bootleaf template at it's core, developed by bryanmcbride.com. It's a responsive template for building web mapping applications with Bootstrap 3, Leaflet, and typeahead.js. Open source, MIT licensed, and available on GitHub.
Icons designed by Michael Harrison (my talented step-son!).
Thanks also to Jeremy Ottevanger and the team at Imperial War Museums for providing access to the data and a few tips to get me started
