I am looking for someone with high quality UI design for high value-add new real estate and mapping site.
Our target market real estate brokerages (USA brokers and agents) and B2B.
Current URL of the demo is at http://126.96.36.199/~whizmaps/whizmaps/# and currently limited to only the San Francisco and San Jose metro areas. So type in 95125 into the search bar, and press the button on the right, to see how the maps work. This is the interface that I need design improvement for. And this new interface will be at Wiz Maps (no H).
Design and post online a mockup of the interface demo, but NOT the core user-defined heatmap technology. So I can hand-off this slick UI design to my GIS developers. And it needs to be online so that I and others can review. And parts of these images will be used for the images for the new website of Wiz Maps, so needs to be a good and professional design.
How the prototype should work.
Step one. The user selects a set of variables that affect land prices (local variables), can be by ranking or growth (which is percentage change).
Step two. The heatmap is rendered. Defaults are based upon by Zip Code and one MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area) with is like a large city or metro.
Step three. Filter the selected heatmap to show top areas to target. Here, they could export this list, but it really is not a lot of value, since most of the numbers would not make sense, without a GIS system.
Step four. Depended upon is the user is a homebuyer, home-seller, Realtor, direct mail marketer, real estate investor, etc. They can select property type (standard interface) or personal consumer profile (this interface is more of that of a direct mail marketing interface). There are two sub-set ways to do the consumer profile, one way is to filter by the existing lists, like what magazines the user subscribes to or the aggregated household profile (I will buy this, but the basic interface still needs to be designed). Or the second is personal profile of the individual person in the USA. And again, I will buy this data.
Step five is either review sample report and order report (for one area) OR export target list with mailing labels. I have samples of these reports and lists, but they need some design improvements.
All this may seem complicated, but not really, since most of all Step 4 and Step 5 exists today. What does not exists is step 1, 2, 3, which is visually filtering ahead of time. And to get 4 and 5 right, easiest to just look at what the competition does. SmartZip, http://www.listsource.com/list/ui/search.htm?search=searchAdvanced, http://www.leadsplease.com/ http://lists.nextmark.com/ and others…. Then we improve and have a slick interface and design.
See attached files. The PowerPoint describes the tablet interface and how thing should work. Nothing is written in stone, and first understand what a user-defined heatmap is (user picks one or combinations of variables, and the geospatial level, then the maps are rendered on the fly, (THEN mashups to heatmaps).
I have other attachments too, just can only upload one at a time here.
