This project stemmed from my curiousity into who was spamming my site. I would get between 10-30 spam messages a day coming from both my contact form as well as what I assumed to be a the result of my e-mail being scraped. I have been collecting data on the spammers so that I am able to learn more about them.
A portfolio web site for a roofing and siding company based out of New England. For 15 years G Loja Construction has done work in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. This site is used to showcase and entice customers to enquire more information about hiring G Loja Construction.
Lewis Creek Builders is built on Wordpress 3.1. The site itself is used as a way of informing potential customers about the company. It showcases some best practices, thoughts, and photos of past work. There is some backend functionality built for the client so that they can manage projects easier.
The Wind Tunnel Mapsite was built utilizing the Google Maps V2 API. It uses a custom content management system that was tailored to the needs of the client. The administrators on the site are able to add/edit locations very easily. Before being inserted into the database the address is geocoded and saved so that the time it takes to load the page is drastically improved.
The main reason this project came to fruition is because I wanted to get my hands dirty with Google Maps Version 3. I had done extensive work in the past using version 2, but I was eager to see what the newest version could offer me. This demo makes use of the API to not only geocode, but also map the locations.
