Website Structure

The website consiste of seven (4) major components: 🧑‍💻

  • Top Navigation Bar (Header) - Component labelled A which can be split into two:
    • Navigation Hot Links - Consiste of hyper-linked texts and dropdowns. Has major links to various project resources.
    • Search Bar - A tool that makes our place names database searchable and easily discoverable/explorable.
  • Side Navigation Panel - Component labelled B. Contains links to important project resources.
  • Resource Content Section - Section labelled C. This is the part where page contents are shown. All other components of the website are static except for this component.
  • Footer - Section labelled D. Used for foot note, contact address, acknowledgment and page hyper-linking.

Of the four components, section C is the only dynamic component. All others are static and will rarely change.
