I am trying to put together an image gallery display. I am guessing it will need to be a customer control but I am not sure. So I figured I would ask on the best way to approach this. When the gallery is loaded I want to have one image displayed with thumbs underneath. On the right side I would like to display EXIF data and underneath that a small google map if there is geolocation tagged with the picture. I figure I will probably need to store the gallery info in a database with caption and description. Maybe even searchable tags if I get cheeky later.
So should I be using an ajax gallery to display the images and if so how to pass the EXIF and geolocation to the other controls? Or do i pull in all the info into some sort of dataset and then parse it out to a custom control. I am still fairly new to ASP but I have a fairly good understanding. Should be an intersting project if nothing else. Any thoughts.
