Travel Switzerland  (full page) • A This is the final version of the web map and UI/UX interface that we built for Nat Geo Travel. Built to replace a prior version that was heavy, took a long time to load, and the new needed to work on mobile. Our solution was a simpler interface, smaller images, a intro screen to hide loading, and a mobile solution incorporating static images as a replacement for the interactive. Collaboration on design and development was done by CY Park.

Web Map was built in Adobe Illustrator, exported as tiles with MapPublisher, translated into the local projection with gdal, gdal2tilespy, and then uploaded into Mapbox. Proof of concept for custom projections on the web. It didn’t work out perfectly but we’ve since perfected the workflow.
