We are a lean aerial photography company in search of new a Ruby and PHP coder/programmer at a reasonable price and as such we are seeking quotes and examples of work from various companies.
I have been working with an American coder for the last 7 years, however he no longer able to meet our requirements. As such we are on the hunt for a unique programmer that knows about geocoded photography, Google maps, google fusion tables, and auto tagging systems for our photo library using reverse geocoding.
We already own an extremely large aerial photography stock library (www.abovephotography.com.au) that utilises both RoR and PHP. I am the front-end designer, and designed the theme layout and implementation. I get ideas, draw them and give them to our coder who previously made them exactly to our specifications. Essentially making the idea a real life functioning dbase.
The most pressing job is to simply repair a faulty Ruby on Rails download system which our clients download photos from us.
This can be viewed here...
To create this page we simply drag and drop our geocoded photos into an S3 bucket and it will automatically generate this page, with username and password as well as the option to download all the photos, view them on a Google map on the bottom of the page, download selected and download all. The system is still somewhat unfinished, the following bugs still occur:
- DOWNLOAD ALL button doesnt download all photos all of the time
- When clicking on the points on the Google map the thumbnails aren't loading, as with the images.
- A few other minor bugs
There will be other tasks we need done in the future, including reverse geocoding the photos on our homepage in an S3 bucket and combining them with the existing photos in our library that use PHP, and tagging them with street names and suburbs from the Google Maps API database.
We also need this to be way cooler and user friendly
Following this we have an entire new photo library to be built called aeriallibrary.
I look forward to your reply.
How are you with the Google Maps API?
Have you worked with Google Fusion Tables (likely not but it will help)?
Do you have experience with Amazon S3 servers?
Daylight hours that you work?
