Overview

Fingal Tourism

Fingal Tourism is an Android App.

The App holds a number of the datasets that would be of interest tp tourist. The user can select the category of information they are interested in and then either show these on a map (all or nearest) or view the locations in a list. A tap on an entry in the list brings the user to the map screen. A 'long press' on a item open a context menu, which allows the user to call the location (if a phone number was available in the data set), open the locations web site (if available) or open the map.

The interface can be shown in English or Gaeilge, selected from the setting icon.

The open screen shows images from around the county, these are currently a fixed list but could easily be conver.ted to download updated images of the county from a web source.

If an RSS feed of events in the county was available, this could be easily integrated into the app. There is an events page on FingalDublin.ie which could easily be converted to an RSS feed.

If Fingal County Council and more appropriately Fingal Tourism (FingalDublin.ie?) has a facebook page then the app could include facebook integration. From within the app, the visitor could 'like' a facility, this would appear both on their facebook and on Fingal Tourism facebook.

I have submitted a similar app, with the full complement of data sets as a community entry. This app shows data relevant to all residents and visitors to Fingal.
