Trinity Mirror celebrity prototype

The Trinity Mirror Celebrity Surveillance was a prototype / proof of concept put together by myself and a PHP developer to see how an initial design would work in practice. The concept didn’t get past the prototype stage but the experience gained from the project was quite valuable.

It used a mixture of vanilla JavaScript, jQuery and Scriptaculous (for the sliders) to interact with a database and the Google Maps API. A ‘celebrity’ once spotted was added to the map, if a large number of celebrities were spotted in the same area a corresponding heat icon was added to the map. The sliders allowed you to see how active the selected area was in the past 30 days.
