Municipality of Zitsa

Municipality of Zitsa is the municipality of Epirus region created in 2011 through the union of pre-existing municipalities of Ekali, Evrymenon, Zitsa, Molossoi and Passarona. This union generated vast needs concerning the content management displayed across the internet.

Area attractions are shown on an interactive map

Users are able to select sights of the area on an interactive map, using their category and/or geolocation. Clicking on the map and on the specific marker of each sight, a new window is displayed including a small description, photo and link to its full description.

All the above features were accomplished with the use of the Google Maps API.

Automatic display of the nearest businesses, attractions and neighborhood villages based on their location

We implemented a geo location system, through which users can select a village, view  the village location on a map and be informed of the sights and the nearby villages, based on distance. Visitors may also be informed of nearby companies.

Similar systems are used by major tourist websites as well as in also smart phone applications.

Website is accessible to people with disabilities (WAI)

The portal of the Municipality of Zitsa was implemented according to internationally recognized standards of W3C, compatible for users with disabilities.

Visitors with disabilities are able to switch to a more suitable interface for their needs. Use of different color combinations, ability to increase or decrease the font sizes and clean cut design, resulted in a user-friendly website.
