Subject [jira] [Commented] (SIS-44) Update the 'demo.jsp' file in the SIS webapp to use an open source maps API
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2017 14:23:41 GMT


Siddhesh Rane commented on SIS-44:

As of the year of this comment does not exist. A quick search revealed
that cloudmade stopped supporting non-enterprise customers. However sis webapp still uses
this service and as a result it does not work any more.
We need to switch to a different service like openstreetmaps.

> 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
for details:
> 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 a snippet of Leaflet code to setup the map:
> {code}
> 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=""
>     subdomains: ['1','2','3','4']
> });
> // Add the basemap to the map
> map.addLayer(osm);
> // Create a marker for the map and add it
> var marker = new L.Marker(new L.LatLng(10.0, 30.0));
> map.addLayer(marker);
> // 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>");
> {code}
> 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.
