Front-End Dynamic Route Map

 

  • Super-Fast loading of all Airline Data – Travellers using the Dynamic Route Map do not need to wait for data to be loaded. Microsoft’s Silverlight 3.0 is very, very fast. The Map Tiles and routes are loaded instantly.
  • ZOOM – Users can zoom in and out of the map over a particular country, using many intuitive and familiar methods (similar to using Microsoft’s Virtual Earth), such as the Mouse Scroll Wheel, Double Click or using the control buttons in the top left corner of the Map. The map is easily reset to it’s original position by clicking on the centre of the navigation wheel.
  • PANNING the world – Users can move around the Map, again with the familiar interface of a Microsoft Virtual Earth like experience, using “Click-and-Drag” or the control navigation wheel in the top left corner of the map.
  • Route lines are visible while Panning and Zooming, making it easier to find destinations
  • Destination Countries are clearly visible using Airline Branded colour coding.
  • Airline Hubs are clearly marked using square markers, while destination airports are differentiated with circle markers. These markers pulsate when selected for further enhanced usability.
  • Bookable Destinations – When a user clicks on a destination airport, an interactive “Bubble” appears, allowing the user to choose;
    • Return or One-Way Flight
    • Departure and Return Dates
    • Fare Type
    • No. of Adults, Children and Infants
    • Make a Booking – links directly to the Airlines Booking engine page
    • The Destination “Bubble” allows users to select routes out from this destination.
  • Connection Flights are clearly indentified, and route line animation shows flights from connection airports.
  • Legend in the footer of the map clearly informs travellers of multiple flight types. The user can click on an item in the legend to filter on these flight types only, e.g. Multiple Airlines or Seasonal Routes etc.
  • Simple integration with existing website

Additional Optional Add-ons

 

  • When Travellers ZOOM into a particular destination city, the Dynamic Route Map can switch to Virtual Earth™ Aerial Satellite or Road View.
  • The Dynamic Route Map can show partner car hire or hotel locations, and provide dynamic directions using the Virtual Earth API.
