Vakantiekaart – Google Maps API, Data Feeds
Launch date: April 2011.
- 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.
