San Francisco MUNI Maps
MUNI’s Maps seem pretty useful, and I’m definitely going to be buying a printed copy. The complete system map also has very nice resolution of San Francisco neighborhoods.
Before you oh and ah too much, I should qualify that this functionality was based on a heavily modified version of PPK’s Quirksmode site navigation widget.
I wasn’t entirely sure of what the best navigation paradigm was, so I made some toggles for you to play with the options. I think I like the “click to select” + “one year selected at a time,” but if you have a strong alternate opinion, please let me know:
That said, there are also still some known issues to work out:
- A lot of the particulars are hard coded right now. I plan to make it a little more generalized so I can reuse the functionality on other parts of the site. So if you’re thinking to yourself “hey, that’s cool, I want that!” I’d recommend not stealing it yet.
- It’s ugly! I’m still working on the styling, but that’s probably going to end up being a part of a bigger project to restyle the whole site.
- In Mozilla (but not Firefox!) each month link is taking up the entire width of the widget, so it makes a straight vertical list of months instead of a 3 x 4 grid. It definitely has something to do with display: block, but that it does the right thing in FireFox really confuses me.
The city of Liberal, Kansas
As of the 2000 census, the population of Liberal, KS was 19,666, while the total population of Kansas was 2,688,418, which makes about 0.75% of Kansas Liberals… Yeah, that sounds about right.
Damnit, I really want to get one of these for my new apartment, but the Apple store claims the estimated ship date is “Mid July.” Maybe I’ll try to wait it out with wires in the meantime. The biggest problem I see with this in its current state is the need for an iTunes remote control (which should be easy for Apple to implement), but in the meantime, I could probably solve it with my bluetooth phone + Clicker. Also, to keep adding to this, just wait for the AirPort enabled iPod which can interface with your AirPort Express. ;-)
