AJAX WebMapping Project Request
Motion "AJAX WebMapping" mailing list from Cameron Shorter by email:
What could be good is if we set up a ajax-mapping list which has representatives from all the OS AJAX web mapping projects.
On it we can discuss ideas on how to implement different functionality with the long term aim that we develop a set of common libraries that we all can use.
- ka-map (interested)
- worldkit (interested)
- OpenLayers (interested)
- CivicMaps (another possible..)
After adoption (going throughthis incubator) the mailing list "AJAX WebMapping" would be part of the OSGeo project infrastructure (run by CollabNet). Alternatively, it could be set up as a list of an existing project, probably ka.map or MapBuilder, once they moved into osgeo.
At foss4g2006 in Lausanne all interested AJAX webMapping Projects are invited to participate at the conference on wednesday afternoon at 18:00 -> 20:00 (room not known yet).
Projects registering in the attendance list below will be invited to present for 10 minutes (depending on available time) their best features, their lacking features and wich features they would like to share with other projects.
After the presentation we'll start the debate: depending on presentation results we'll try to plan a medium term action to evaluate common needings and a long term action to develop a common framework.
Target public is intended to be AJAX web mapping developers.
- Ka-Map (Paul Spencer, Lorenzo Becchi, Andrea Cappugi)
- OpenLayers (Schuyler Erle)
- MapGuide Open Source (Robert Bray)
- Mapbuilder (Steven Ottens, Michael Adair)
