We begin year with pretty interesting and major news. WebGIS is one giant step closer to be seriously useful, thanks to the new open source WebGIS project named Turf.
You can try the examples yourself from MapBox’s entry or look at the list and try examples directly on turfjs. Discussing Turf and why it may succeed, Howard points to Plasio, point cloud rendering capability in a browser for Lidar data. Geospatial directly on the web might indeed see great progress this year.
