"Live Maps" is the GIS platform where we offer access to georectified maps, but also where we combine various elements of data to produce maps "on the fly". Apart from producing maps based on pre-selected data, "Live Maps" will includes many other features. The first one is a timeline. All the items existing in a given period are displayed on the timeline. This will let the user know will show what data is available for display on the maps (e.g. "schools" in 1910-1925). Each physical element like buildings, parks, etc. -- whenever this is known -- is determined by a "date of construction" and "date of destruction" (or change of function). A second feature is the link between these physical elements and the photographic database. All such identified elements in the photographic database will appear with all their associated pictures and actual location on any georectified map in Virtual Shanghai. Finally, we have created a database of all street names through history. The database will allow searching any street name and find its various names in Chinese, pinyin, English or French in the various periods of Shanghai history. Names will also point to the actual location on a map.
This platform is under development. It is meant to offer new features as it develops. Tentatively, these features can be defined as follows:
