This project was an onsite activation. The goal was to have several kiosks with the user interaction with the running totals visable on a large display screen. This ment active internet access was needed, so it was planed out as a web app.
A user could choose weither they where a runner or a spectator. Runners would be quized about how they trained, while spectators would input where they are from and a mileage (as the crow flies) would be calculated.
This was the only project that I have ever worked on where the client said "This is the general idea, and we have no idea how to go about it." This gave me alot of freedom to figure out how to deal with the spectator tracking. A couple ideas where bounced around about regions and states, but in the end I figured out how to use the Google Places API to auto complete the text field, and not allow actual addresses. The closest zoom allowable was cities or zip codes.
