A while ago, after being unimpressed by the map viewing experience of a number of websites on mobile devices, I decided I want to make a responsive website with google map as a main navigation element myself, to try and understand the problem and come up with a usable layout.
This is how http://www.seewah.com/art-deco-london/ came about - an interactive map of London art deco buildings.
These are the "desktop" and the "mobile" layouts that I experimented with:
I hope you enjoy looking at these wonderful buildings (I do encourage you to see the real thing, of course), and please give me feedback. I have currently only listed 57 buildings, but over the next few weeks, I will be adding more.
Some interesting things I have learnt:
- Some Android stock browser versions do not handle overflow:auto correctly
- jQuery scrollTop does not always work in some Android stock browser versions
- Great West Road - Golden Mile
