Senior Project - WebSPAN


An Automated World Wide Web Site for Photo Ad

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Jason Armbruster, Brian Carlson and Jason Wells
Boulder, CO

Photo Ad is the Weekly Picture Advertiser of Boulder County (newsprint in magazine format). Every Thursday, Photo Ad is distributed around the County and is picked up by the public free of charge. Items pictured for sale are placed with accompanying text. The goal of this project was to develop the concept, design, and implementation of a World Wide Web site which provides a database of information of the items found in the publication (cars, trucks, planes, apartments for rent, animals for sale/free/trade, and more). The system provides an easy-to-use graphical interface that allows a non-technical operator to describe the mapping of the ad database onto web pages, along with a means to automatically generate the resulting web pages. The software was written in Visual Basic and runs on a PC under Windows.
