ENVS456: Web mapping and analysis | University of Liverpool. Introducing Mapbox Studio. Today we're inviting everyone with a Mapbox account to create amazing cartography and advanced visualizations with Mapbox Studio. This is a turning point: a system for cartography that's powerful but easy to use and produces maps optimized for mobile applications and the modern web. Mapbox Studio is the axis of Mapbox's ecosystem: every style is optimized for use with our mobile & web SDKs and ready to be extended with our APIs for developers, like geocoding and directions. Create styles, see your statistics, upload custom data, and manage API access all through one integrated, user-friendly interface. A powerful and familiar interface Guided by input from our in-house cartographers, we designed Mapbox Studio to handle complex and nuanced styling tasks.

At the same time, it's easy for anyone to pick up and use. Familiar layer-based styling Managing sophisticated styles can get tricky, with many different types of roads, labels, and features. Total visual control Built in font library. GeoHive - Spatial data made easy. Spring Roo based RAD tool for Java developers – gvNIX. Open Web Mapping: How do we teach this stuff? Javier de la Torre: "There are a ton of European geo-startups trying to conquer the world" Javier de la Torre is the CEO of CartoDB, a global startup democratizing data analysis and visualization on maps.

He is a former scientist with a research focus on biodiversity informatics and global environmental change, and is a recognized expert on open data, open source software, and data visualization. Q: I have the impression many users of CartoDB are people who wouldn’t otherwise have the technical ability or skills to bring a map to life. Who uses it? How? A: That is correct. We believe that GIS and mapping in general should not be a niche domain, but that everybody should be able to take advantage from it. We have many different types of users, some of them using it more professionally for development, sales, marketing or BI, and others use it for data exploring and communicating stories with maps.

Q: So people are using CartoDB to tell stories with maps. But for my personal favourites, I love stories about biodiversity and conservation. A: Ha! A: What? A: Hey! GvNIX, Spring Roo based RAD tool for Java developers – gvNIX. GvNIX is an open source tool for rapid application development (RAD) with which you can create Java web applications in minutes. It is a distribution of Spring Roo that provides the set of Spring Roo tools plus a suite of features that increase development productivity and improve the user experience by integrating frameworks like jQuery, Bootstrap 3, Leaflet, DataTables, Dandelion DataTables, among other. gvNIX = productivity Create web applications in minutes.

Multiplatform and easy to install gvNIX is easy to install as a standalone tool that works on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux or as an integrated tool environment Development: STS or Eclipse. The only requirements are Java (6 or higher) SDK and Apache Maven 3. Non-intrusive code generation It takes on a different approach to code generation compared to other solutions. Each generated inter-type declaration (ITD) type will “weave in” structural changes to its target class in compilation-time; for example to add new methods, attributes, etc. Authentification Sésame Rennes 2.

From March 2-5, we will be at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona showcasing our latest developments in geospatial platforms and other mapping technologies. The CartoDB team will be ready to engage in and demonstrate the use and efficacy of location-based services and maps—a considerable part of the mobile experience.

Apart from learning about CartoDB, don’t miss ‘The Next Generation Mapping platform will be Open Source,’ a panel we are hosting with some of the most influential people in the mapping industry. The panel will be on March 4 at 3:30 p.m. in the presentation area of the Spanish Pavilion (Congress Square CS60). In the mobile industry, location and mapping are key features; location- based services and location analytics are becoming increasingly central to business intelligence. And at the heart of mapping, open source is winning. Randy Meech Randy Meech is CEO of Mapzen, an open source mapping lab based in New York City. Eric Gundersen Tyler Bell Javier de la Torre. Workshop: Introduction to Mapping | DH@RU. Taught by Francesca Giannetti, Digital Humanities Librarian, Alexander Library Wednesday, December 10, 2014 4:00 – 6:00 PM Alexander Library, Room 415 169 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ Have you been wanting to explore a geographic component to your research but don’t know how to get started?

Attend this workshop, and you will learn the basics of geospatial analysis, including file types, the csv data format – one of the most ubiquitous and application agnostic, how to create vector data (points, lines, polygons), finding and reusing geospatial data, examples of how to visualize your data, and how to share interactive digital maps online. E-mail Francesca (francesca.giannetti AT to register for the workshop (limit: 24 places).

Demain et dès à présent sur le site web du Temps, vous pourrez lire une enquête de notre journaliste Julie Conti sur Airbnb à Genève. L’article s’intéresse à cette plate-forme de location de logements fondée en 2008 par des Américains, et qui connaît un immense succès dans le monde entier. Et cette enquête contient une bonne dose de datajournalisme. Du journalisme de données Tout est parti d’une question. Dans de nombreuses grandes villes - Paris, New-York, Berlin - Airbnb est accusé de confisquer le marché locatif. Et qu’en est-il à Genève ? Les résidences principales mises en location sur Airbnb le sont-elles réellement ? Pour répondre à ces questions, nous aurions pu, en surfant sur le site, en lisant les commentaires, aller récupérer des informations et des témoignages au cas par cas.

Nous avons essayé de travailler un peu différemment, en nous appuyant sur les données, pour tenter une approche plus globale. Voici donc le mode d’emploi de cette enquête. Scraper, comment ça marche ? GEOG 585: Open Web Mapping | GEOG 585: Web Mapping. Georeferencing imagery. You can place a scanned aerial image or a historical map onto a Mapbox map with spatial referencing. Below, we go over the steps of how to take a non-georeferenced JPEG image and turn it into a geospatial dataset ready for rendering in Mapbox Studio and other Mapbox tools. Here, we use the free and open-source application Quantum GIS (version 2.4) and a couple plugins to georeference an image onto a map. We’ll then save the image and upload it to Mapbox. Load QGIS plugins To start, you’ll need the latest version of QGIS installed and ready to go.

Once you’ve installed and opened QGIS, you’ll need to add a couple plugins – the tileLayer plugin and the georeferencer plugin. To install a plugin: Plugins->Manage and Install Plugins. Set up the tileLayer plugin Once your plugins are loaded, you’ll need a little prep work before adding a satellite reference layer.

In the classroom, now unlimited — CartoDB Blog. We think a lot about how mapping and technology work in the classroom. We’ve always felt that CartoDB could be used to support education in a diverse set of classes and be a go to tool for educators wanting to expose students to technologies that also can lead to research, jobs, and innovation. We also know that educators have to work really hard with typically small budgets for anything more than their own time. One of the things we have learned in our own work with CartoDB is that limits can make the tool hard to teach.

In particular, when you teach someone how to map or manipulate data, restrictions on the number of datasets your students can use is a pain point without many solutions. So, as some of you may have noticed, today we’ve rolled out our own solution to this problem… Unlimited tables for students and educators Creativity thrives in universities and we don’t want to limit it, which is why the CartoDB cloud is no longer the limit.

Last week we announced the release of OpenLayers 3 Beta 2, so this week I wanted to share some recent experiments combining OpenLayers 3 and Ember.js to create a LayerSwitcher that supports grouping and overlays as well as base layers. This was my first attempt to use Ember.js, an open-source client-side JavaScript web application framework based on the model-view-controller (MVC) software architecture pattern. It uses the Handlebars library for its templates. Some of my takeaways from this exercise were: Ember seems powerful, and easy to learn.

However, it’s sometimes hard to scrape together all the resources needed to learn and extend the framework.Components are pretty new to Ember and I couldn’t figure out how to properly define a component in a different namespace and use it in the application template (this is why I needed to use a workaround).OpenLayers 3 also has observable properties, which makes it easier to integrate the two.

Google to Mapbox. Are you using Google Maps and searching for the equivalent code in the Mapbox JavaScript API? This guide walks you through examples in the Google Maps API v3 and their implementation in mapbox.js. Getting started To begin, you’ll need the latest version of mapbox.js. Unlike Google, there’s no API key required when you include the script in your HTML. Initializing a map The most basic usage of a web map requires that it is initialized on the page. // Mapboxvar map ='map', '') .setView([40.718217, -73.998284], 13); For the remainder of this guide, we’ll use the map variable in examples to represent this initialized map.

Adding a marker You can create a single marker on a map by creating a new marker object. A single marker in Mapbox is constructed in a similar way with L.Marker and adding it to a map with addLayer. // Mapboxvar marker = new L.Marker(new L.LatLng(40.718217, -73.998284)) .bindPopup('Hello, world! ') Adding a custom marker Modifying map controls. Scribeui 0.7 beta | simon mercier. Suite à des travaux importants réalisés chez Mapgears, je teste depuis plusieurs jours, une nouvelle version de ScribeUI et je suis vraiment épaté du résultat. Le projet n'est pas encore sur Github, mais il y sera prochainement.

On a remodelé l'interface, ajouté de nouvelles fonctions mais surtout changé le framework Flask pour Pyramid. L'application est maintenant beaucoup plus stable même si quelques petits bogues persistent. La bonne nouvelle est que Jessica Lapointe poursuivra bientôt les travaux entamés sur l'application beta pour améliorer l'utilisation générale du produit. Personnellement, je ne peux plus me passer de l'outil pour produire des cartes web. ScribeUI offre une méthode rapide, structurée et efficace pour faire un projet Web Mapping. Combiné à Git, je peux transférer un projet d'une VM local à un serveur Cloud en quelques minutes, c'est vraiment pratique. En plus de la syntaxe scribe très pratique, deux nouvelles fonctions vraiment cool arrivent avec cette version! Map of the Week: Doughnut Holes in international waters.

We welcome Dmitriy Skougarevskiy who is a doctoral candidate at The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in this guest post to let him tell us about his pet project on the loopholes in the Law of the Sea, called It all started with an International Law volume where I glimpsed this illustration: Simply put, the 1982 U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea established that an area stretching 200 nautical miles from a seashore is an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the respective state. In practical terms, this convention is important as it grants the state an exclusive right to exploitation of marine life (think fishery) and natural resources (oil and gas).

But what if (a) littoral states are closer than 200 miles (how would they divide the sea?) Such areas, shaped by nature and human convention, are known as ‘doughnut holes’. Bathymetry on base layer Unless you are from the Wall Street Journal, your map starts with a baselayer. Drawing EEZ polygons .
