geojson.io: Vector Data Edition and Sharing for Everyone

I lied, I have not yet shared all the pertinent geonews that happened during my extended holidays, I was keeping this gem just for myself, here it is! In late July, the open source geojson.oi website for drawing, changing, and sharing GeoJSON-formatted map data was announced by MapBox's Tom MacWright. This is major news in my opinion: creating and sharing basic vector geodata on a map can't be made easier and accessible. Try it out yourself.

Here's the about page. The brief initial announcement: "geojson.io is for drawing, changing, and sharing GeoJSON-formatted map data. Save as a GitHub Gist and share a link. Hit Cmd-S to do it quickly. Edit the JSON properties in GeoJSON features easily. Line-specific JSON-validation errors from jsonlint. Line-specific GeoJSON-validation errors from geojsonhint. Use geojson.io with modern mapping tools, like TileMill, MapBox.js, GitHub, and Shapely. It’s made of open source: Leaflet.draw, MapBox.js, CodeMirror, and a new library I wrote called geojsonhint, that does GeoJSON validation."

Ogre 0.2.0 Released

Ogre is a web client (service) that translates spatial files into GeoJSON and now from GeoJSON using the ogr2ogr command line tool for use in JavaScript web applications and frameworks (like OpenLayers).  Built on NodeJS.

This release adds:

  • Stability improvements/updated UI
  • More format support
  • Conversion from GeoJSON to Shapefile

[Editor's note: we introduced Ogre last year, another tool on the same theme is named OGR2GUI]

geojsp - the open source component for geo-BI application is now online

geojsp is a project developed by Inventis (inventis.ca) at the initiative of the UNHCR (unhcr.org).
geojsp is an opensource (GPL) component written in Java that adds geography to business intelligence systems.

With geojsp you can connect to a postgreSQL database containing geospatial features (with PostGIS), query the data via MDX queries and encode the geometries in GeoJSON format in order to display it in a OpenLayers web-mapping interface.

geojsp is compiled with the SOLAP server GeoMondrian in order to create MDX queries incorporating a spatial component. It also includes JFreeChart, a graphic generator used to display graphs superimposed on geographical elements.

You can download the application at http://geojsp.org
