  • GoogleMaps and Search for NZ Schools

    You can visit the NZ School map. Finding the Schools Data I started with superbly-useful spreadsheet of schools for 2008, downloadable from the NZ Ministry of Education. This has excellent detail: keyed on School Number, with postal address, decile, some category information and a head count. Geocoding Schools Data It was a matter of moments to get this into an SQL table, and then do some normalising to split out separate tables for the local authority and regional council. (Though I think I...

    I am Dave Wilcox, a website, PHP and database developer, and, admittedly, a bit of a geek. I moved from the UK in 2008, and I now work as a contractor in Auckland, New Zealand and also work for remote clients. I live a stone's throw outside Auckland with my wife Amanda, who keeps my batteries charged with tea and biscuits. We share our life with two cats, lots of wildlife and a great rural outlook. I can work flexibly, from clients' premises (if you want bums on seats), but if distance is an...

  • Medipharma E-Commerce Sites

    Initially I planned to write these mostly with my own PHP plus a small open-source PHP tool for a shopping cart. However, almost by chance, I stumbled across PHP OpenCart. I was very fortunate to discover this great piece of kit. It is fantastic for the small and medium site which wants to present and sell products. I managed to get both sites built with very little bother in about six or seven working days. Out of the box, OpenCart has a reasonable array of options without making life very com...

  • Mobile-friendly Website Conversion

    Max Maxwell runs www.singforjoy.org.nz, and had heard the advisory warning from google, at end of 2014, that mobile-unfriendly sites would gradually descend in its search listings. He asked me if I could protect him against such a woeful fate. I admit to being something of a Luddite when it comes to mobile phones, but of course recognise my minority status in that regard. I had never worked on the mobile aspects of web design before, and I was quite keen to learn about this new specialisation o...

  • Time For You Treatments

    Starting from scratch, the structure of the site fell together very naturally: a home page, contacts page, then one page each devoted to the services Susan offers. We chose pinks, browns and pastel yellows, with some low-contrast marble and towelling textures as a backdrop to menu, footer and page surrounds, to give connotations of spas and saunas. We had several suitable images for the front page and could not choose which one to use. So a very small bit of Javascript refreshes the image on th...

  • Elizabeth Mapstone

    We both met while reading Experimental Psychology at Oxford in 1981-1984. Way back when still learning web sites, I built her a site which now looks very naive. The new one is a tad batter and displays a few examples of her many talents, which truly comprises the tip of the iceberg. Elizabeth is the author of "War of Words: Women and Men Arguing" and "Stop Dreaming, Start Living" www.elizabethmapstone.co.uk In the new design I wanted to apply a tabbed appearance (getting away from the old depr...

  • UK Radar Rainfall display

    The UK Met Office maintains a network of rainfall radar systems and distributes the data in a variety of formats (scales and data-depths) to water companies, the Environmental Agency and other parties. Data arrives between five and 60 minutes apart. Storm uses this data to help in the automatic detection of severe weather conditions: the user can quickly see a map or a table which is aggregated over any period to identify "hot-spots" of rainfall, or replay a sequence over the last few hours to w...
