Within the program, you can find some advanced options that allow you to create a profile along the road, bicycle and pedestrian paths, and measuring the slope angle. For educational purposes several pre-programmed profiles of interesting geographic features, such as: the highest mountain or the largest ocean depths of Earth. Geocontext-Profiler on your website?

Interactive The World of Seven Billion The map shows population density; the brightest points are the highest densities. Each country is colored according to its average annual gross national income per capita, using categories established by the World Bank (see key below). Mapping with Google Fusion Tables Earlier this year I created a lab assignment for Sally Hermansen’s Advanced Cartography course at the University of British Columbia. The purpose of this lab was to introduce students to Google Maps and managing data in Google Fusion Tables. I’m posting it here in case anyone else finds it useful. Geographical Biogeosciences 472 Advanced Cartography Lab 2: Google Maps The objective of the lab is to create an interactive, web-based map that would be suitable for inclusion on the web edition of a major newspaper or in a blog post by an advocacy organization. In this lab you will use a variety of free mapping tools built on Google Maps. The point layer you create will be clickable, using pop-up boxes to provide the map reader with additional information such as statistical information, photographs, or links to web pages. Part 1: Getting Started 1.1: Overview of web mapping A web map consists of three main parts: the basemap, the content layers, and the web page that holds the map together.

Download Country DATA Select and download free geographic (GIS) data for any country in the world Sources Formats The files have been compressed and grouped in ZIP files. You can use programs such as 7-zip, PKZIP or StuffIt to decompress the files. Vector data are stored as ESRI shapefiles Grid (raster) data are stored as DIVA gridfiles Each "shapefile" consist of at least three actual files. Gridfiles are used in DIVA-GIS. A gridfile with "country mask" indicates that the areas outside the selected country are masked out. A DBF (dBase file) is a dbase format database table. Resolution The resolution is the size of each grid cell expressed as the length of one side of one (square) cell.

The Collection Make a table accessible - Fusion Tables Help By default, new tables are private, requiring other people to be invited with specific permissions and sign in before viewing or editing the data. Visualizations embedded in other websites and Google Earth network links cannot authenticate to Fusion Tables when they call for the data, so the table must not require sign-in for these features to work. There is one exception: Tables created by importing a web table from the search results page of Google Tables are public by default. To remove the sign-in requirement for viewers: Click the Share button. You'll see a list of who has access to the table. Private If you leave your table as Private, only the people you have specifically invited will have access to your table. Public When an exportable table is set as Public, signing in is not required to view your table and visualizations embedded elsewhere can draw from your data table instantly. "Anyone with the link"

DEM2TOPO Generator DEM2TOPO is a program to generate vector contour levels from freely available digital elevation model (DEM) data. These contour vectors are ideally suited for upload to portable GPS units where commercial topographic maps are unavailable or inadequate. With a few simple steps and the appropriate software, topo maps can be uploaded to Garmin GPS units that support mapping (see the Using DEM2TOPO section, below). The program is designed for Canadian DEM files , but those for other countries using the ASCII version of the USGS DTED file format should work. The Canadian Digital Elevation Data (CDED) consists of an ordered array of ground elevations at regularly spaced intervals. DEM2TOPO is written in IDL, which is a high level interpreted language for scientific data analysis. Download the prebuilt RT version. If you already have the RT or VM version installed, you only need to download the zip file at the top and overwrite the dem2topo.sav file in your existing directory.

GOS - Geospatial One Stop Fusion Tables Layer (Experimental)  |  Google Maps Javascript API  |  Google Developers Note: The Fusion Tables layer is Experimental. The Fusion Tables Layer renders data contained in Google Fusion Tables. Overview The Google Maps API allows you to render data contained in Google Fusion Tables as a layer on a map using the FusionTablesLayer object. A sample Fusion Table, showing geographic data, is shown below: Limits You can use the Maps API to add up to five Fusion Tables layers to a map, one of which can be styled with up to five styling rules. In addition: Only the first 100,000 rows of data in a table are mapped or included in query results.Queries with spatial predicates only return data from within this first 100,000 rows. Fusion Table Setup Fusion Tables are tables of data that provide built-in geographic data support. The table must be shared as Public or as Unlisted.The table must have one or more columns exposed as a Location. The Location column must follow the formatting requirements below.

Fusion Tables API Important: Fusion Tables API v1.0 restricts the maximum response size to 10 MB. We encourage you to migrate to the Google Fusion Tables API v2.0, which provides media download for large payloads. Get started There are lots of ways to get started with Fusion Tables. Dive into sample code, follow a tutorial, or join our community. Create, update, and delete Manage your tables and table data with the Fusion Tables API. Issue queries Use SQL-like queries to manage rows of data, obtain specific data from a table, or perform a spatial search. Google Maps JavaScript API Data that can be mapped in Fusion Tables can also be a layer on a Google Map. Google Charts Fusion Tables is a data source for Google Chart Tools.
