The calendar layout has taken on a sort of TV schedule layout with the list of event locations along the y axis. The x axis displays times and the user would be able to click through time linearly with forward and back buttons to view events happening in the surrounding hours. The event locations will be limited to four or five and events are color coded based five event types with corresponding icons. Currently each event has a rollover tooltip displaying additional information for the event.
I need to show events happening simultaneously at the different locations. What is the best way to handle this?
I will also need to include a map, but I'm concerned with proximity issues, namely keeping the elements close enough that they flow seamlessly together.
