     2= !GeoExplorer =
     3
     4Work has started to integrate !OpenGeo's !GeoExplorer as an alternate/replacement Map Viewing Client.
     5
     6== Why? ==
     7 * Good for Users to use consistent tools across applications
     8 * Good for Developers to be part of a bigger community
     9 * We want to rewrite to have most of the app in static !JavaScript anyway
     10  * ease contributions from !JavaScript developers (who may be put off the Python part)
     11  * support caching
     12 * There are some cool features available which we'd like to make use of
     13
     14== Links ==
     15 * [http://suite.opengeo.org/geoexplorer Sahana Demo site]
     16 * [http://suite.opengeo.org/geoexplorer OpenGeo Demo site]
     17 * [http://projects.opengeo.org/geoext/wiki/GeoExplorer OpenGeo Wiki]

     22
     23== Feature Comparison ==
     24=== !GeoExplorer has which MVC doesn't ==
     25 * Save personalised, bookmarkable map views (layers / viewport)
     26 * Browse for new WMS servers/layers
     27 * Google Earth 'layer'
     28 * Legend panel for WMS layers
     29 * Print support more complete
     30  * Warning for unsupported layers
     31 * Implementation of 'group' for different layer folders (can use this for Internal/External feeds)
     32
     33=== MVC has which !GeoExplorer doesn't ==
     34 * Internal feature layers (do these as KML?)
     35 * KML/GeoRSS/GPX layers (use source 'ol'?)
     36 * Clustering
     37 * Extra OSM layers (CycleMap, Hillshading, Taiwan, Custom)
     38 * Extra Google layers (MapMaker)
     39 * Yahoo layers
     40 * Potlatch2 integration
     41 * HTML5 !GeoLocation support
     42 * !GeoNames Search
     43 * Overview map
     44 * Mouse Pointer: Lat/Lon & MGRS
     45
     46== Issues with !GeoExplorer ==
     47=== Outstanding ===
     48 * Published maps: geoexplorer/viewer.html#id
     49  * Doesn't appear to read the config at all!
     50  * Viewer sends about to geoexplorer/about.html
     51 * How to edit Title/Abstract(Description)/Contact when saving a map?
     52 * How to save a WMS Server when saving a Map? ("source":"source78")
     53 * Not clear when saving whether this is a New map or an Update
     54  * Should have a 'Save As' option
     55 * No Mouse wheel to zoom
     56 * scaleLinePanel ugly: remove the Scale Chooser?
     57 * Layer-Switcher in Embedded View not as nice...why different UI (just that we have less space not a reason since we can collapse mini)
     58 * Currently has issues with !GeoExt 1.0 ('j is null')
     59 * Not tried updating to latest GXP version from [https://github.com/opengeo/gxp GitHub] yet
     60
     61=== Fixed ===
     62 * Ext 3.0.0 -> 3.2.1 (Test they work ok with 3.0.0 too):
     63  * height: 27 (north)          [GeoExplorer.js & Viewer.js]
     64  * header: false (westPanel)   [GeoExplorer.js]
     65 * OpenLayers 2.9 -> 2.10
     66  * Can remove the 'Patch the SphericalMercator layer' from the top of GeoExplorer.js
