Vakantiekaart – Google Maps API, Data Feeds

Launch date: April 2011.

Objectives:

  • To extend my ecosystem around Belgian Holidays and Calendars.
  • To become experienced in using the Google Maps API.
  • To develop a universal adapter to import data feeds. More specifically, the massive vacation feeds of the top 5 travel agencies in Belgium, of which I process about 20000 travel offers via the various data feeds.

This project consists of a backend module to extract, transform and loaf the XML data feeds from the providers, and a front-end to visualize those offers in a very appealing way using various extensions that hook into the Google Maps API.
