I am considering G Web Development as a potential candidate to implement a web application that can do the following:
1. Obtain and show the map location (map service to be defined later).
2. Display and allow selection of filters by clicking on controls.
3. Place indicators on the map (bullseye, eye drop, different colors).
4. Place legend.
5. Add slider to select timestamp (or range).
6. Display additional information when clicking on a location indicator already on the map.
Is G Web Development the appropriate software for such development? Can it do all of what is described above?
I can do most or all the above using LabVIEW; however, doing it over a web application is a different story....
What do you guys think?

I'm in the middle of my first big G Web Project right now and I would say this is not possible right now (as long as you stick to the tools of G Web itself). With proper html, css and java knowledge then most likely yes, but then you don't need G Web :).
Lets say we use only G Web and some custom CSS to manipulate the look and feel of buttons and other UI elements and we use a flexible layout for the page (which is a must have for a modern website/ UI).
So right now I would say this is pretty much impossible and to be honest I don't blame G Web for this. You project is something G Web is not really build for - at least in my opinion.
I created the Maps for WebVI example that gives you a G API for using Open Street Maps (which can have different providers) or Google Maps.
The example shows you how to place markers on the map that contain relatively simple marker content. For other features like legends, slider, etc you can use the G Web controls and position them around the map.
The example includes a demo which listens for marker clicks and updates a listbox (you can listen for marker events). The demo also listens for listbox events and selects a marker (you can use VIs to manipulate markers).
