We're working on a fun website called VicePrice. It's a happy hour website using GIS instead of a list directory to show happy hour info. We've run into a snag and perhaps someone could give us their thoughts.
You can play with our current design here. In Washington DC, Logan Circle has played a large role in the gay community. It's served as a place of pride for decades and I'd like our map to tip our hat to that.
We're thinking that when a user hovers over Logan Circle, instead of a gold overlay, a rainbow overlay would show instead. Like with the rainbow flag here.
So far the only possibly solution we've come up with has been to create a horizontal polygon for each color in the rainbow, and when a user hovers over one, it triggers all polygons. But that's been a huge challenge applying the same rule to those polygons.
I was wondering if someone else has dealt with this issue and how they would suggest tackling this problem.
