Map Makerpedia: A Worldwide Community of Mapping Knowledge The collective expertise of the Google Map Maker community has benefitted millions of people who use Google Maps. Users have helped put cities, road networks, and universities on the map for the first time in over 187 countries and regions. Now, users have the ability to contribute more than their mapping edits; they can also share their experiences, knowledge, and local expertise. Map Makerpedia homepage Map Makerpedia is a new crowdsourced guide for Google Map Maker that features lessons, articles, and tutorials. Alongside the Lat Long Blog and Map Your World community, Map Makerpedia is part of Google’s effort to highlight the contributions of individuals and organizations. Students at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria are using Map Makerpedia to showcase their campus mapping project. Mapping in groups at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria Map Makerpedia features a ‘Maps 101’ section, which puts Map Maker tutorials in a lesson-based form.

GIS Cloud Starts HTML5 Mapping Revolution | GIS HTML5 Mapping Engine At GIS Cloud, we were always inspired to push online mapping beyond it’s borders. When we started building GIS Cloud a few years ago our vision was, and still is, to move the entire GIS industry into a browser i.e. into the Cloud. Because custom maps can be quite complex and difficult to handle we had to build certain technologies from scratch. Among those is our own vector and raster map engine. At first, we used Adobe Flash as the output format. Flash delivered great performance, but had two major problems: it’s not a web standard and it isn’t properly supported on all devices. As of now, HTML5 will be the default GIS Cloud map engine, through which we plan to deliver the full GIS experience right in your browser. Even if your map has thousands or millions of features, you can now experience it with high user experience right in your browser! Who likes caching map tiles? HTML5 Canvas – ideal for map rendering One of the biggest benefits of vector mapping is interactivity.

Krogen ska vara öppen sommartid och leveranserna ska ske med båt. De undersöker väderstrecken, var kommer solen att vara? Det är ett liv och ett kiv i Vinterviken, denna soliga dag i början av maj.

Take Me Out To the Ballgame - Hitting a “Home Run” on Store Site Selection Summary: Jim Stone, prinicpal of Chain Store Advisors and former CEO of geoVue provides his thoughts on the correlation between baseball and store site selection. Is it expertise, "gut feel," or do you stick by the numbers. You'll have to "step up to the plate" and read this article to find out more. It’s hard to miss the similarity between baseball and site selection, right? “That store is a home run.” It’s About the Numbers Baseball is a numbers game. However, if you look at the correlation between batting statistics and winning percentage, a completely different story emerges. Chain store real estate has some similar elements. It’s Not Just About the Numbers Let’s consider another interesting part of baseball: catching a fly ball. So how does an outfielder know how to run down a fly ball? How does a real estate deal maker know whether a piece of dirt will be a successful store location? Ed. note: This article originally appeared on Jim Stone's blog, realanalogies.

GIS i geografiundervisningen – en möjlighet och utmaning Geografididaktisk forskning från Norge visar att högstadieelever med rätt stöd kan hantera relativt avancerade kartanalysprogram. Ett projektorienterat arbetssätt fungerar också väl när man tillämpar geografiska informationssystem, GIS, i geografiundervisningen. Utvecklingen av geografiska informationssystem (GIS) har sedan länge inneburit nya möjligheter och utmaningar för olika tillämpningar i geografiundervisningen. Teknik eller innehåll i fokus? Den tekniska utvecklingen har också under senare tid inneburit ökad tillgång på allt mer användarvänliga applikationer. Den särskilda programkurs i GIS som finns i gymnasieskolan har t.ex. bara genomförts på ett 15-tal skolor i Sverige. GIS som ett verktyg i en aktiv lärandeprocess Under 2011 publicerade den norske geografididaktikern Svein Andersland en doktorsavhandling (Geografisk institutt, NTNU, Trondheim) som närmare behandlar detta tema. Andersland utgår från den amerikanske geografen Daniel Suis indelning i att lära om och med GIS.

Geo APIs Summer Learning Series: GIS with Google Earth and Google Maps This session at Google I/O demonstrated how developers can take advantage of new and little known GIS capabilities in all of our geo services. We started out showing some of the GIS capabilities in Google Maps API, which amongst other features, lets you calculate distances and angles and overlay map tiles in arbitrary projections. Moving onto some new and upcoming products, we showed off some of the capabilities of Google Earth Builder, a new platform to manage and publish large amounts of raster and vector GIS data. In the world of data visualization, previous sessions had showed off new styling features for Fusion Tables. In this session, we showed how you can enable spatial queries on your data, displaying maps and statistics for the closest set of features to a location, or all features within an arbitrary radius. Google Earth Builder is not the only new product that provides access to our infrastructure for working with large GIS datasets - we also talked about Google Earth Engine.
