    v183 v184  
    169169Can we have a popup moved to a different part of the screen to control printed layout?
    170170
    171 So far we have investigated this approach:
    172  * [wiki:BluePrintGISPrinting Print to PDF via Java Applet]
    173  * [http://trac.mapfish.org/trac/mapfish/ticket/161 print to Image file by converting PDF to Image]
    174 However this will only be able to see Feature Layers exposed as web services (KML/GeoRSS) & it is hard to get detailed control of the output.
    175 
    176 We've also considered trying to integrate a screen capture tool into the browser, e.g. using Flash or Java, but haven't found anything suitable yet.
    177 
    178 Perhaps we're better off looking at using a print.css to allow the browser's print functionality to work:
    179  * [wiki:BluePrintCSS#PrintView]
    180  * We want the Legend inside the Ext window - ideally able to hover & be moved to a place where it doesn't obstruct anything key
     171We have a basic [wiki:BluePrintCSS#PrintView print.css] which means that the normal browser Print functionality gives a reasonable print.
    181172 * Should we hint to go into Landscape mode?
    182173  * http://css-discuss.incutio.com/wiki/Print_Stylesheets#The_.40page_rule_and_forcing_Landscape_orientation
    183174  * http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum83/1736.htm
    184175
    185 We could also really use a 'Zoom to Area' feature which allows selecting a location (i.e. Tehsil in this case) & zooming to that Bounds.

     178We could also really use a 'Zoom to Area' feature:
     179 * Autocomplete box to search our internal Locations (filter out level='XX', as-usual)
     180 * Upon selection it zooms to the Bounds (if Polygon) or just the Center with zoom+2 (if Point)
     181 * This could initially replace the Geonames searchCombo, but later it would be ideal if the search 1st checked our internal features &, if that fails, then search Geonames/Google/Yahoo geocoders
    186182
    187183For WMS layers which we serve via our own !GeoServer, we can refine the DPI output for these requests:
    188184 * http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/services/wms/vendor.html#format-options
     185
     186Previously we have investigated these approaches:
     187 * [wiki:BluePrintGISPrinting Print to PDF via Java Applet]
     188  * [http://trac.mapfish.org/trac/mapfish/ticket/161 print to Image file by converting PDF to Image]
     189  * However this will only be able to see Feature Layers exposed as web services (KML/GeoRSS) & it is hard to get detailed control of the output.
     190 * trying to integrate a screen capture tool into the browser, e.g. using Flash or Java, but haven't found anything suitable yet.

    189192=== Shelter Registry ===
    190193 * On the map, where it shows the shelter, it should show the comments as well, so that one could easily find the requisite facilities. These facilities should be searchable though.
