Leaflet GeoJSON Feature Search – PNM Carto Design Blog. Last month I published the PaMAGIC Members Map on the organization’s website.

Leaflet GeoJSON Feature Search – PNM Carto Design Blog

The map was built using the Esri plugins to Leaflet.js. One of my favorite features of their geocoding plugin is the ability to search within the features of a map/feature service. The map is using this plugin to allow users to search for members by name. When a user types a member’s name into the search control, matching results appear. Il mistero delle vie fantasma e delle città inesistenti nelle mappe. Metod y tecn. GeoJSON in Three.js - This example demonstrates how to display a GeoJSON MultiLineString geometry object as a wireframe using Three.js.

Each point in the GeoJSON is converted from spherical coordinates (longitude and latitude in degrees) to three-dimensional Cartesian coordinates as follows: Geodetic Coordinates And Latitude, Longitude. This is a great question because it uncovers important sources of common misunderstandings.

Geodetic Coordinates And Latitude, Longitude

The brief answer is that although of course geodetic latitude and longitude are a form of latitude and longitude, they are not the only ones and the differences are not trivial, so we should be cautious not to confuse them. In all cases, latitude and longitude are numbers used to designate points on the earth's surface. Radiigeo. Earth Curvature for Highpointers. * © 2012 Adam Helman Introduction Earth's curved surface is of interest to highpointers in at least two scenarios.

Earth Curvature for Highpointers

It places a limit on how far one can see to the distant horizon. It creates a correction term when hand-leveling. Many factors enter into a so-called "exact" treatment, including atmospheric conditions, hand level imprecisions and observer misinterpretation. Account of surface curvature is presented at two levels of accuracy. Spherical Model Horizon Distance.

Haversine formula - Wikipedia. The haversine formula determines the great-circle distance between two points on a sphere given their longitudes and latitudes.

Haversine formula - Wikipedia

Important in navigation, it is a special case of a more general formula in spherical trigonometry, the law of haversines, that relates the sides and angles of spherical triangles. The first table of haversines in English was published by James Andrew in 1805,[1] but Florian Cajori credits an earlier use by José de Mendoza y Ríos in 1801.[2][3] The term haversine was coined in 1835 by James Inman.[4][5] These names follow from the fact that they are customarily written in terms of the haversine function, given by haversin(θ) = sin2(θ/2). The formulas could equally be written in terms of any multiple of the haversine, such as the older versine function (twice the haversine).

Turf.js is a modular geospatial engine written in JavaScript, that helps create spatial analysis in browser.


It is originally created by Morgan Herlocker and now it's a Mapbox project. Although many examples of using Turf.js use the Mapbox API, it can be used with Leaflet too. Next I will show how to use this awesome JavaScript library with Leaflet. This article assumes the reader has basic knowledge of JavaScript and Leaflet.

Google Geo Developers Blog: Open-Sourcing Google Earth Enterprise. Posted by Avnish Bhatnagar, Senior Technical Solutions Engineer, Google Cloud We are excited to announce that we are open-sourcing Google Earth Enterprise (GEE), the enterprise product that allows developers to build and host their own private maps and 3D globes.

Google Geo Developers Blog: Open-Sourcing Google Earth Enterprise

With this release, GEE Fusion, GEE Server, and GEE Portable Server source code (all 470,000+ lines!) Will be published on GitHub under the Apache2 license in March. Originally launched in 2006, Google Earth Enterprise provides customers the ability to build and host private, on-premise versions of Google Earth and Google Maps. More than you ever wanted to know about GeoJSON - Let's look at GeoJSON in a little more depth, from the ground up.

More than you ever wanted to know about GeoJSON -

Understanding these concepts will help you understand geospatial data in general, too: the basic concepts behind GeoJSON have been a part of geo since the very beginning. This should be read along with the GeoJSON spec itself, which is authoritative and, for a formal specification of a format, pretty readable. Coordinate.
