The Push for Change

A mapping and tracking system was designed to assist users in visualizing the walking efforts of Joe Roberts as he walks across Canada as part of The Push for Change.  The system was designed to integrate pre-planned existing trek information, and allows for easy management, route changes, and tracking Joe through a flashing icon.  Custom JavaScript was written to provide users an auto-updating progress tracker that shows Joe’s walking progress to the kilometer.
