Eckberg, CarlRoot, WilliamDunster, T.Marc
The emphasis of the thesis is to build an intuitive and robust GIS (Geographic Information systems) Tool which gives an in depth information on Indian independence movement. The GIS tool also incorporates glory to independence with the support of different political movements, acts and political parties. The user has the option to select these movements and acts by clicking on any of the marked states on the Indian map. The Indian Map also incorporates key features for Indian independence like the Birth of Gandhi, Lucknow pact etc. The user can know more about these features simply by clicking on each of them. The primary focus of the tool is to give the user a unique insight into India; for this the tool has several HTML (Hypertext markup language) pages which the user can select. These HTML pages give information on various topics like the Indian government, Indian armed forces and judicial system. The tool has been developed in JAVA. For the Indian map MOJO (Map Objects Java Objects) is used. MOJO is developed by ESRI. The major features shown on the Indian map was designed using MOJO. MOJO made it easy to incorporate the statistical data with these features. The user interface was intentionally kept simple and easy to use. To keep the user engaged, key aspects are explained using videos and HTML pages. The idea is that pictures and videos will help the user garner interest in the struggle for independence of India against the British. Being from this culture rich nation I hope this tool does justice in giving people an insight into India and its people and their struggle for Independence.
