Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

For probably about six years now, I've been shielding my eyes and sticking my fingers in my ears and shouting LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA every time I looked at my poor excuse for a development map. It so desperately needed a makeover, but I never had the time, creative spark, or technological chops to turn it into anything like what I would want it to be, so I just left it alone, even during the big JDLand redesign a few months back. The map's information was accurate, at least!
But a few weeks ago I saw a blurb about Google's My Maps upgrade, now called Maps Engine Lite. You can draw lines and shapes! You can have layers (well, a few of them)! You can have Google as your maps base!
So I went off to play with it, and quickly decided that it could make a likeable enough successor to my original Web 0.1 map.
You can also always get to it by clicking on "View Full Map" on the mini-map at the top right of most JDLand pages, or the "Project Directory" link in the black menu bar.
It still isn't quite everything I dreamed of, but at least now you can zoom in, pan around, and filter the display by layers--if you only want to look at completed residential projects, or projects under construction, or projects not yet begun, or some combination thereof, click the little menu icon at top left and make your choices.
It may not be optimal for phones, and so I have to think about that for a while, but the big static list of projects is still available beneath the map if you are a words-and-not-pictures type of information ingestor.
I'll wager that my Parking Lots map will get migrated as well before Opening Day 2015.
And if you have any complaints with how it functions, feel free to let Google know!

This looks really great, JD, definite upgrade.

When I was biking to work this morning, I saw a lot of construction at the Ruben Companies' lot on I Street, across from the car wash. There were several tractors, a water truck, etc...

Environmental remediation. Used to be an Exxon station, so they are pulling out the tanks, I believe.


202_cyclist says: (10/17/14 2:23 PM)
Does that mean tha something is planned for that lot in the reasonably near future?


JD says: (10/17/14 2:26 PM)
The 909 Half Street residential building is planned for the eastern side of the block, but there's been no announcement of movement.

This map is great. I'm ESPECIALLY loving the Near Southeast Food Options page. One question: Isn't there (also) an oyster and wine restaurant going into the LumberShed in 2015? My heart will be broken if that project has been terminated!!!


JD says: (10/17/14 6:51 PM)
Thanks! You have to zoom in on the Lumber Shed on the Food Options page, but you'll see a red pin on the south side between Agua and Morini marking where the Navy Yard Oyster Company is going in.

Looks great! Thank you. I take it the beer garden has moved into "never going to happen" territory?


JD says: (10/19/14 6:16 PM)
Who knows with the beer garden. It looked like they were about to pop up in front of the Historic Preservation Review Board again a few months back, but never got there.

And, duh, the Photo Archive map needs the same treatment. Going to take a while, but here's the idea: link
