Nowadays state of the art medical technology and well-trained doctors are expected by many who require treatment. In order to satisfy these high standards, innovators and other players must be encouraged and supported with wholistic longterm planning certainty. Since 2002 the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Medizinischer Fakultätentag (MFT) have been publishing a map of university medicine in order to create more visibility and planning reliability. In the meantime, the online version has become an important monitoring instrument that presents the capacities, structures and content priorities of the individual locations.
In order to make better use of the possibilities of an interactive map, we developed a new concept for the MFT, with an independent microsite as a result. In addition to an optimized design of the interface, essential features and functions are communicated. Beyond that, there is an overview of the single institutions with background information and objectives of the map as well. It is implemented on the basis of the Google API.
With this relaunch, the location-based map will not only be an attractive tool for more effective planning, but also a medium for the image communication of the various locations.
