StyleForum maps - Page 3

post #31 of 41
Superfuture has some nice maps - perhaps we could do something like that?

There are things about the superfuture maps that I like and things that I don't. I think we can do better and more customizable.

Barebones startup map on the wiki: http://styleforum.pbwiki.com/FrontPage. Now, how to do this in some sort of organized fashion? Download current map, make changes, upload with new date maybe?

pw is still brownfarmer.

That is my understanding as well - if it did support overlays through a hack, that would be perfect. I like the Google Maps street interface a lot.

I've heard this too, which is why I keep asking people if they know of a hack.

The download/upload issue is why thinking about hosted apps like wayfaring is useful. I'll Google around a bit to see if I can find anything more.

Wayfarer doesn't have data for Europe google earth doesn't support street address searches for outside of the US/Canada/UK, but at least you can still get the level of detail and add your own pushpins.

Google Maps can be hacked, but it looks like it requires some actual coding. If Google Earth supports (or will support) street overlays over time, which I think is a safe bet, I suppose we might stick with that. The beauty of Google Maps is that it is easily publicly accessible, but I think we'd have the same downloading/coordination trouble with each file (not a flexible write field). http://www.engadget.com/2005/03/08/h...ia-google-map/

are there any gis experts in the house? this is exactly what it's for. just need gps coordinates and/or addresses.

there was recently a nytimes article about a guy mapping father-friendly storese (restrooms have changing stations) in nyc.

I saw that one, too.

GIS stuff is too sophisticated for us normal folks, and would be the same as Google earth WRT hosting.

Superfuture has this concept.

google earth does have some street data for a few cities (i.e. san francisco). they also have 3d building data. it's just a matter of time before their coverage spreads.

Alan C and Zach,

Thanks for the recommendations. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy myself in Hyd.

Is the styleforum flickr map still running? Looks like you can merge its data with google earth.

There're instructions here on integrating google maps, but I can't get permissions on my computer. Can someone else try it out?
