New AJAX-Based Showcase Website of Maporama Launched

Geocentric Services Company Launches Web 2.0 Version of its Cartographic Services Website

Maporama International has announced the release of its new maps and itineraries website www.maporama.com and its entrance in the Web 2.0 era. The website has been totally redesigned, on the ergonomic level as well as on the technical side. The new interface, based on AJAX technology, brings to the web users new enriched functionalities, dynamic contents and a more rapid information display.

The new website interface presents an optimized ergonomics and a lot of new innovative services, relying on AJAX technology. In opposition to traditional web applications, often slow in terms of loading time, the new www.maporama.com applications manage data and requests in asynchronous mode, in background, to accelerate the display of the web pages and information.

The homepage is customizable thanks to a system of modules and options that allow to define a personal interface (choice of the map styles within 31 styles, of the display size of the map, itineraries parameters, functional modules display).

The map module offers a new user-experience, richer and more interactive: zoom-in and zoom-out function by selecting a rectangle with the mouse, drag &drop function to navigate on the map.

The itineraries module has been enriched with an interactive roadbook (choice of the displayed information like step-by-step maneuver instructions, intersections maps) and additional contents such as speed cameras. Users customize also the print layout of their itinerary depending on their final need (pedestrian itinerary, by car or motorcycle).

The website offers very innovative functionalities in BETA version. It is the first website to provide an itinerary calculation under the real-time traffic information constraint and real-time driving indications. Moreover www.maporama.com includes a cartographic view service to display in one click the road traffic situation on street level maps. These services are currently available for the Paris, France region.

A world premiere service: directions.mp3 (itinerary exports on MP3 players) Directions.mp3 transforms any MP3 player, MP3 mobile phone or iPod in a real road companion: in one single click on www.maporama.com, the user exports from his PC

The website offers also the possibility to create maps and itineraries collections in the area "My Maporama", to enrich the users' online social network. The web users create and store their maps in their personal "My Maporama", and share them with their community by email, in a simple click.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
