Free Online Winery Trip Planner
JVF work with Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association to create a Google Maps winery itinerary planner called Plan My Visit.
Visiting all of the different wineries located in the Livermore, CA area was once a difficult task until now. By blending the functionality of Google Maps with a complete list of wineries to easily add, drag, and drop to create the perfect winery itinerary with driving directions.
Print a Perfect Winery Tasting Tour
The itinerary shows all of the local wineries in the Livermore area by placing a custom wine bottle icon as the place marker. To view details about a specific winery click the custom wine bottle icon and a pop up window with details about the winery will be displayed. To add this winery to your itinerary simply click the “Add to Itinerary” button located in the bottom left corner of the pop up window.
Once you have selected the wineries you would like to visit you can click and drag them around to the order you prefer. The tool then maps out the wineries, and gives you the driving directions in the order you would like to visit them. Simply press the print button, and your itinerary will be generated into an easy to read map so you can explore the wineries Livermore has to offer.
Google Maps Integration
By uncovering the most needs and of their target audience, we were able to focus our efforts around the elements that would generate the most value and engagement. Using customization to define icons instead of the default marker images, increased visual behavior interactions.
With the custom content website powered by jCommerce®, LVWA can easily add and remove wineries, edit their information, address, and logo images on the fly. If a new winery or event is entered into the system it is immediately visible on the Plan My Visit map. With the Google Maps API, JVF was able to create a user friendly map that will help navigate wine coinsurers around the Livermore valley for years to come.
