Parkersburg Businesses Map

The Parkersburg businesses map is an illustrated map developed by the Parkersburg News and Sentinel Newspaper, displaying the downtown of their city. The map is linked with information about each business in the area, which appear as pop ups when rolling the mouse over the buildings. The intensely vibrant and cartoonish quality of the map breathes life into the image of the city’s downtown, creating a fun experience for the user. Functionally, the map allows users to browse the businesses casually while admiring the artistic quality of the work. The map uses DHTML with a simple javascript library (stickytooltip.js) that adds a pop up based on polygon shapes (defined by vertex coordinates).
