Perhaps you have already used in your work OpenWebGIS or just have seen it or read about it. Due to this system exists since 2014. But we will describe OpenWebGIS briefly. It is an open source online/offline geographic information system for work in web browser or mobile app. Since its foundation, a great number of users have benefited from using this system functions.
Have you seen “the story maps” created on the ESRI website (http://storymaps.arcgis.com) or for that matter from http://storymap.knightlab.com/ or http://mapstory.org/. They are all frameworks for you to create “a story” with geographic connections, and they achieve this more or less successfully. Common for all of the above are that they are services, depending on the on-line framework. This makes it possible to present a more user friendly experience when you create the story, but at the same time you loose some flexibility and you need to be on-line. Here I’ll show how you can build a storymap yourself based on…
Thanks to Christoph, he also runs a specific blog on paleoseismicity, who send me the link, I want to share the gizmodo list of best maps 2013 with you. Despite the little US focus (which is a disadvantage of the list) we can see some major trends for 2013/2014:
We love leaflet. In fact we have done some great projects with this nice little piece of code like our job-map. As I’ve checked the news from leaflet: they have released version 0.7 into the wilderness of the internet. So what’s new?
Today I stumbled upon a “map” on Spiegel Online ( an import news page in Germany ) which shows the spied countries of the NSA. As we already know leaflet quite good and also tried other mapping possibilities I was interested in what they are using for this map which is more informative than this useless map. So looking on the source code: It’s a library called jvectormap.
