There is a whole heap of stuff here behind the map "site"...
The current one by pigeon uses google map.v2 and is olde stuff..
It even uses perl and alike to get realtime data etc.. ie every server
so this is olde hat... and its about time it dies...
As part of "fgx team" ...
with Gral as BDBL ..
and + Geoff BDBL.deputy , we were working on an "Open Street Map" version..
with a postgis backend and all interfaces..
- for mapnick
- for json
- for export
but unfortunately gral and myself got busy with other more important stuff..
== REALTIME DATA ==
BUT BUT the real time crossfeed by geoff is alive and well at
This gives real time "listener" of channel with "crossfeed" configuration..
ie direct from UDP last packets to json
Also all the CrossSite Scripting is allowed by all atmo
This means you can call it from someothere webpage..
Maybe I dig up this stuff and at least get MP working again with Geoff
crossfeed and live..
Content Delivery NETWORK.. is the way we deliver "bog standard" images and
jquery and ext and jpilot and js this and that are included.. as officiall
This means that the basic stuff is all upstream..
so u can pull with confidence downstream..
AND is the most official it can get.. IE the LAtest and BEST..
The cdn is actually a git repos..
This repos includes all the "files" et all and is directly serveed atmo
So u dont want to have to include all the files on a website.. include all
the query, and this and that lib and all of them..
So the technique here is to create a
and the icons from here and my customs ones there..
The NAV data is where Gral is clever with mapnick driving the database
import data into GIS.. and gis stuff...
and myself creating.. the web interface, mainly AJAX/REST interface to
and tried all the alternatices,, even RAW SQL
to USING Django (GIS) which failed miserably..
modeling "tables and columns with SQlAlchemy+GIS" which kinda works..
executing view and alike on server is preferred
and then cashing stuff...
Its important to not..
That the goal is to aqquire the data in an easy manner..
and even to require more that a new "map site"..
being a situation of creating "the site"
and having a "div" tag to embed the data...
Online is can be quite fast if we have a CDN for files and all that stuff..
Eg an almost zero requirement to create A MAP, eg for a trip..
and that data embedded as part of the application..
There is a lot involed there, eg finding the "center of an airport"
or airport withing range of 500nm from nothpole.. etc.
The dataset we import is xplane 10 ie not the current on FG...
The "situation" we were looking at is to provide a feed for all downstream,
thereby avoidiing the import problem..
This means that the "map part", could be anyinterface that can create a
map, and send coordinates and speaks ajax..
Whether a mobile device, embedded js, a VA website et all...
The above is all my explanations.. without me reviewing.. their valid
