Re: ArchMap reborn

That's odd; it appears I'm now swimming in Lake Huron.  Guess the map images must have shifted over the last couple years.  Time that I acknowledge that I'll be living in Florida for awhile anyway.

Re: ArchMap reborn

ArchMap reborn again smile

Hi, I've prepared a new version of ArchMap using Google Maps JavaScript API v3, so you can access it via browser.
I wrote some php scripts which parse list from this wiki page and then generate KML file. KML file will be updated automatically every day. I also implemented simple search function.
When you click on selected marker, popup window appear containing username and optional comment (usually address).

ArchMap: http://archmap.hekko.pl/
KML file: http://archmap.hekko.pl/usermap2.kml (of course you can also download this file and load in Google Earth)

You can add yourself to list and immediately check if syntax or/and coordinates are correct using alternative "dynamic" map version without waiting for an update KML file. It parses list from wiki and then browser draws all markers, so it works extremely slow (prepare for high CPU consumption), but you should only use this map to check if data you added are fine.

Re: ArchMap reborn

Hmm... But whether it's my fault or people who added wrong coordinates? I won't correct coordinates for them...
Let me know if you find any line with correct coordinates which draws in wrong place on my map. So I'll be able to investigate problem and fix it wink

These are easy to test yourself i think, just click on a few markers. wink

P.s., what happens when people leave Arch, will they stay on your map indefinitely?

Added myself, turns out in the correct place on the dynamic map smile.

There's like a grand total of 2 people listed from Malaysia. Oh wow.

Re: ArchMap reborn

IIRC it was a Google Map and used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyhole_Markup_Language

Edit: Yup: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ArchMap
One of the screenshots is still available: http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/1324/fhfdhu.jpg

Re: ArchMap reborn

I've thrown some stuff up on GitHub if anyone wants to take a look. It's a bit messy and undocumented at the moment though, I just wanted to see a map! Opening up the 'output.geojson' file should render a map on GitHub, failing that, there's a link to a Mapbox map in the repos README.md.

If you just want the geojson or kml files they're in the repo too.

https://github.com/maelstrom59/ArchMap

I was unsure as to what to licence it under because it contains the text from the wiki but the code is under an MIT License.

It'd be good to get it a bit more dynamic, pull requests are always welcome! Also, the wiki could do with some updating tongue
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ArchMap

I'll do what I can but in the meantime, have at it!
