    1 = Blueprints for the GIS Module =
    2 [[TOC]]
    3 
    4 We use [http://openlayers.org OpenLayers] to display Maps with some [http://geoext.org GeoExt] widgets.
    5 
    6 == Ideas ==
    7  * [wiki:Projects/Basic#GISMapping Basic Tasks]
    8  * complete [BluePrintMobileClient#Mapping support for Mobile devices]
    9  * Integrate [http://riskinabox.org Risk in a Box]
    10  * complete move of Internal [wiki:BluePrintGISFeatureLayers Feature Layers to GeoJSON]
    11  * allow swapping from embedded to full-screen without a reload of the page
    12  * complete moving of JS code from being generated [http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/browser/modules/s3/s3gis.py#L1857 server-side] to [static http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/browser/static/scripts/S3/s3.gis.js] (for caching & easier maintenance)
    13  * integrated Legends in the West Panel
    14   * Simple example: http://api.geoext.org/1.0/examples/legendpanel.html
    15   * More complex example: [http://suite.opengeo.org/geoexplorer/ GeoExplorer] (add some layers)
    16  * complete migration to !GeoExplorer
    17  * [wiki:BluePrintGISOSMLayers OpenStreetMap PoI Layers]
    18  * Color coded maps according to Geo-data (threats, needs, etc)
    19  * Placing variable sized markers on the map in proportion to data (number of people in camp, number of families needing food)
    20  * Tracking people ( John Smith was registered at Camp A, then collected food at Camp B, then volunteers at Site C), or Items (The shipment of Tarpaulins moved from site C to site D, where it was split, and then half of them have been distributed from site E)
    21  * Having a playable timeline slider (like [http://haiti.ushahidi.com/main])
    22  * Identify core [wiki:BluePrintGIStools GIS tools]
    23  * Integrating Walking Papers ([http://walking-papers.org/]) functionality into Sahana
    24 
    25  * Merge http://skapes.org Geolytics toolkit
    26 
    27 == List ==
    28  * [wiki:BluePrintGISAPI Mapping API]
    29  * [wiki:BluePrintGISLocationSelector Location Selector]

    71 
    72 To display Shapefiles & Images we need to install a 3rd party server.
    73 [http://geoserver.org GeoServer] is probably a better target than [http://mapserver.org MapServer]
    74  * !GeoServer has a great in-built Admin UI
    75  * !GeoServer can be configured via REST rather than !MapScript if we wish to control from within Eden itself
    76  * !GeoServer uses !OpenLayers as native preview
    77  * !GeoServer has a [http://geoserver.org/display/GEOS/Printing+2.0+HOWTO Printing plugin]
    78  * [http://opengeosuite.org OpenGeoSuite] provides an integrated stack
    79  * [http://mapfishblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/studio-beta-for-mapfile-manager.html MapFish Studio]
    80 
    81 We should aim to be compatible with UN Logistics: http://www.logcluster.org/mapcenter/unsdi
