1. The Administrator of Ascension
An extremely popular and nicely laid out site
which we first created in 1997. This is an excellent example
of a clean, fast loading web site and is the official Government
web site for the small island of Ascension Island. This site
advertises the island in 'style' and provides in-depth information
about the island's many features.
Dynamic News Page - News articles
and associated graphics can be added, modified and deleted by
the owner of the site via a secure control panel.
Virtual Reality Tour - An interactive map of the
island with clickable 'hotspots', where the Internet user can
click on an area of the map and "virtually" visit
the area he/she clicks on. There are twenty-six individual QuickTime
Virtual Reality (QTVR) tours of the island on this site. These
tours can be panned around 360 degrees as well as zoomed in
- This site is written in a mixture of plain HTML
for static pages and the PHP
dynamic scripting language with a MySql
is used to dynamically load the scenic thumbnail images in the
top left of each page and QTVR
is used for the virtual reality tour.
Thank you indeed for making such an excellent
job of the Ascension Island's website. Not only are we
getting more enquiries about the Island and the possibility
of visiting here but business through our Post Office
website is going from strength to strength.
