MIT's Exhibit 2.0 - Alternative to KML Files

MIT's Simile project has a series of tools that "... empower users to access, manage, visualize and reuse digital assets." Exhibit 2.0, one of the Simile tools, allows users to "...Create interactive data-rich web pages ... without ever touching a database or a web server, or doing any programming."

In building a Google Maps based community crime map application, I first used KML files, I developed a series of tools to export my Excel based data to a KML file with VBA. As I tried to add interactive features to my Google Map, I found that I needed to add database query capabilities, adding considerable programming complexity to my application.

Exhibit 2.0 solved my interactive mapping problems quickly and easily with essentially no programming.

This video shows the capabilities that you can add to your Google Maps with Exhibit 2.0.
