Re: [OSM-dev] GSoC 2010. OpenStreetMap Mashup Generator Project

2010-03-15 Thread Sajjad Anwar
Glad to hear the responses.

Please also take the possibility into account to draw your yown points,
 lines and shapes onto the map and export them (link to them) into
 various formats.

Drawing lines and shapes on to the map is pretty much possible with
OpenLayers API. So, we can include this feature to the to-do list.


 I could think of some public platform like github, where one can draw
 points on to the map and another one lines and a third person can then
 aggregate the feeds of those two maps into their own map, linking to the
 original sources and receiving updates from them.


This would be interesting. People can share the maps easily with their own
changes being made. But how many?
Let us prioritize the tasks.
I'm right away adding it to the ideas page.

Regards.

[OSM-dev] GSoC 2010. OpenStreetMap Mashup Generator Project

2010-03-14 Thread Sajjad Anwar
Hi,

I have put forward an idea into the GSoC 2010 wiki page. The link is here
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GSoC_Project_Ideas_2010#OpenStreetMap_Mashup_generator
It is basically to create an easy to use mashup generator based on
OpenLayers API,  to enable people to use OpenStreetMap data in various ways
including presenting on a web page and taking print outs.

I would personally love to take this project forward, if everyone thinks
this is worth developing and feasible. Waiting for comments and suggestions.


Regards.

Sajjad,
This sounds like an interesting idea - effectively an extension to embedding
a simple OSM map on a web page to include data from another source.
While I think this is possible with existing javascript libraries such as
OpenLayers, I think the main aim of this project is to make that easy for a
more casual user, who does not speak much JavaScript.
It think this would be a useful contribution.   It is also very nice to see
suggestions coming from prospective students, thank you!

Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Thanks


Graham.
