Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-44) Update the 'demo.jsp' file in the SIS webapp to use an open source maps API
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 12:11:21 GMT
Update the 'demo.jsp' file in the SIS webapp to use an open source maps API

                 Key: SIS-44
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: web services layer, website
            Reporter: Ross Laidlaw
            Priority: Minor

A suggestion was made on one of the SIS wiki pages to update the 'demo.jsp' file in the SIS
webapp to use an open source maps API, such as Leaflet (, rather
than Google maps.

For reference, below is a copy of the comment from Paul Ramirez (see

Instead of using Google Maps you may want to use Leaflet ( or
OpenLayers ( due to required API key for the map. This might matter
if you are going to host this example on the SIS Wiki or OODT Wiki as the required API would
be attached to you.

Here's how a snippet of Leaflet code to setup the map:

var map = new L.Map('map');
// Setup the basemap      
var osm = new L.TileLayer('http://otile{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
    minZoom: 1,
    attribution: 'Basemap <a href="" target="_blank">CC-BY-SA</a>
by &copy; <a href="" target="_blank">OpenStreetMap</a>,
Tiles Courtesy of &copy; <a href="" target="_blank">MapQuest</a>',

    subdomains: ['1','2','3','4']
// Add the basemap to the map

// Create a marked for the map and add it
var marker = new L.Marker(new L.LatLng(10.0, 30.0));

// Attach a given HTML content to the marker. For brevity I truncated the content
marker.bindPopup("Title: geodata.txt<br/>Link:<a href='http://localhost:8080...>...</a>");
Unlike the GoogleMap API this does not require a key and is an open source product as is the
basemap (e.g. Open Street Map served by Mapquest);

Then this would be a complete open source solution from top to bottom. If you have any questions
feel free to hit me up on the SIS or OODT lists.
