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? 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.

Workshop: Introduction to Mapping

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. Comment nous avons enquêté avec les données d'Airbnb. 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.

Comment nous avons enquêté avec les données d'Airbnb

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. GEOG 585: Open Web Mapping. Georeferencing imagery. You can place a scanned aerial image or a historical map onto a Mapbox map with spatial referencing.

Georeferencing imagery

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. The Map Academy › CartoDB.js. What you’ll learn This introduction to CartoDB.js from the ground up will take you through the common uses of the library.

You'll start out by pulling your maps from CartoDB with only a few lines of code. Later you'll customize your maps with JavaScript, interact with the data, add custom SQL queries, integrating other features, and much more.

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. Cartodb/ at master · CartoDB/cartodb. Using OpenLayers 3 with Ember.js. 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.

Using OpenLayers 3 with Ember.js

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. Odyssey.js. Los mejores plugins para Leaflet. Better Maps For IOS: Introducing Mapbox GL - Splash. Google to Mapbox. Are you using Google Maps and searching for the equivalent code in the Mapbox JavaScript API?

Google to Mapbox

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. Just link directly to a hosted version by copying this snippet into the header of your HTML document.

If the bland sameness of Google maps is giving you ennui, TileMill might be a good alternative for you. There are many beautiful stylesheets to make TileMill maps visually distinct, and you can control the colors, line widths, and much more about your map using Carto, a CSS-derived language.

Autopsie d’une dataviz [5.2] : des MBTiles pour éviter les tuiles. Fév112014 Comment faire pour afficher proprement et sans lenteur une carte choroplèthe contenant des milliers de zones ? Réponse dans cette seconde partie d'une trilogie cartographique ! Dans l'épisode précédent : Un cartographe amateur s'est lancé dans un projet un peu fou. Il souhaite créer des cartes interactives contenant des milliers d'informations, et est déjà parvenu, au prix d'efforts harassants, à obtenir un fichier .shp réutilisable. Expanding Leaflet's format support with Omnivore. Omnivore helps Mapbox.js & Leaflet eat more types of data. We love and support GeoJSON, but sometimes specific data is in other formats, like GPX from a running watch, KML from Google Earth, CSVs from your spreadsheets, or TopoJSON files with enhanced geometries.

Omnivore makes it all super-simple: omnivore.gpx('run.gpx').addTo(map); SIG Web ou GéoCloud ? Quelques réflexions personnelles... Il y a près de 20 ans, avec l'avènement de l'Internet et sa généralisation dans la société civile comme dans le monde professionnel, est apparue la notion de SIG Web. Il était alors question pour certains des acteurs historiques de la géomatique (les traditionnels éditeurs de SIG lourds travaillant sur stations de travail, Mac et PC) de s'adapter à cette nouvelle technologie, plus moderne, plus puissante, plus souple et plus tendance.

D'autres n'y ayant pas cru, n'ont pas pris ce virage. A Simple Map. Open source mapping software in the cloud. To make it easy for you to get started with open source mapping software on own server, we provide server images including everything you need: PostGIS, MapServer, TileCache, GDAL, WFS, WMS, Elasticsearch, Leaflet and OpenLayers. Just launch an instance and start uploading your spatial data in only 5 minutes. After launch no configuration is needed, just start using your server and share maps with the world.

Configuration of the servers: Ubuntu 12.04LTS (64 bit) running Apache2 as Worker MPM.PHP5.3 is running as FPM (a FastCGI implementation).The tile cache running as a mod_python application.Oracle JDK We’ve also put a basic GeoServer install on the images.
