Louisiana Planning on Google Maps

Center for Planning Excellence

The Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) is a non-profit organization that coordinates urban, rural and regional planning efforts in Louisiana. The Center's website features a prominent Google Map that is used to help guide visitors to the content specific to their location.

The map has been designed with a great deal of care and attention to detail. The marker menu sits above the map and slides into view only when you click on one of the categories. The markers and information windows have been custom designed to fit the overall design of the Center's website.

Louisiana itself is highlighted on the map with a different colour and when you select a region or neighbourhood then that area is also highlighted on the map. If you click on any of the map markers the content for that location is loaded below the map.
