As I wrote in my last post, I will write some details about my Final Year Project (FYP) in this post. FYI, I’m not taking FYP2 yet for this semester. I supposed to finish my study and leave UTP by this September. However, I just like to extend one semester of my study (until mid of January 2012). So, I’ll be taking FYP2 next semester together with just another subject; Malaysian Studies.
When I’m proposed the title for my FYP, my supervisor was not convince with the project. Hence, he proposed to me to proceed with a new title which is my current project: Map Mashup for Halal Industry in Malaysia. So, this is how I start working on my FYP.
The objective of this project is to build a platform so that the suppliers, manufacturers, and consumers can interact with each other in an easier way via a standard platform. The current directory listing provided by JAKIM and HDC is inconvenient to the user. So, by plotting data straight onto the map will be much more easier for users to analyze the data.
You can view the website via halalmaps.my
This project is currently in beta version. I think this project will be completed soon (if I work neatly ). When the kick-off of the development, I was not confident in myself about designing the website, so I search for web designers to get the design for me. But in the end, I managed to do it by myself! I’m the web developer and also the web designer!
Thanks to Adired, Nay0wn, and my other friends who help me alot to complete and testing the website. Not to forget Rofans, for team up with me and go for SEDEX 28 UTP last week. And also million of thanks to Beta.My for promoting my project on their website.
This website is built on top of CodeIgniter framework. By completing this project, I hope that I can demonstrate my skills in tuning Google Maps API to public. If you have any suggestion, cultivate critic, feel free to drop it in the comment section.
