The Copenhagen Metro. Take 2

Today is a day to remember for commuters, turists and the like around Copenhagen as well as frontend savvies around the world - Today is the launch of version 2.0 of The Copenhagen Metro.

The Copenhagen Metro

Apart from the appealing design, the rewritten engine, the vast amount of true web standards, a rather high level of accessibility and usability, Metro has gone from inform-the-public to actually service-the-public. The frontpage alone – providing direct station service info on a large AJAX enabled map – should eliminate a great deal of daily requests and frustration.

This – as well as the former – version of Metro is a product of Creuna Danmark A/S, in fact a 10-15 man job in total. The solution is based on Sitecore CMS plus a number of integrated custom build applications.

Metro offers an international website in english located at intl.m.dk as well as a mobile version at mobil.m.dk. Also, check out the nifty customizable widget offering service info directly within your own website.

This is as close to perfection as can be considering the usual cocktail of a CMS and .NET – personally I’m overly joyed with the result.

Run along now. Have a look at The Copenhagen Metro.

I especially like the broken link on “nifty customizable widget”. Is that part of the “close to perfection” concept of yours? ;)

What’s your opinion?
