Dolphin Creative is an event company producing public festivals
Dubai Marina Festival is a street theatre festival stretching along approx 3 km of marina promenade in Dubai.
Along the 3km promenade will be stages, decor, workshops, exhibitions, food and beverage outlets, admin tents, power access, references to local restaurants, access roads.
We need a ‘map’ of this path/walkway so we can start to plan the festival layout
Over the last few years we have been trying to adapt a google map, but this has not worked for a number of reasons.
Now we are looking for a fresh approach to solve this challenge:
1) The map does not need to be like a traditional map; it can be a representation. Eg” London Tube Map
2) The path is narrow and 3 km will is a long space for 1 piece of paper. We’re looking for a solution where we can ‘zoom in and out’ along the festival path.
3) The map needs to be able to be adapted to share with the public. This can be either physical and or on screen.
4) We’re only focused on the path and the immediate area around the path. The rest of the buildings and roads are superfluous.
We want to create the map in stages:
Get the outline of the path with a basic key of 100m
For my team to print the pages and then write on the pages where each elements would appear on the map
Scan the pages and send back to make better graphics on the map.
Repeat process until map is complete
Format map so it can be a pullout section in the festival programme. Be a map that we can put on the festival App
Before we start on the map, we would like to confirm how best to create the map, and on what format/software.
We are not expert in graphical formats, so we’re looking for advice
