Book Description

OpenLayers is an open source JavaScript web mapping library distinguished from other alternatives, like Leaflet or Google Maps APIs, because of its huge set of components. Having being on the scene for a long time, users can benefit from a large set of resources and documentations, and a wide and actively supportive community.

Instant OpenLayers Starter gives you the possibility to produce your first “real” web map without being an experienced programmer or a GIS specialist. It provides you with an overview of the most popular vector and raster data formats used to share spatial information on the Web. By the end of the book you will be able to amaze your boss with a brand new web map and a bag of skills to give life to your geodata.

Instant OpenLayers Starter guides you through a fast and effective journey of web mapping, to discover how easy it is to put maps in your web projects, from simple base maps to interactive geo mash-ups, Google Maps, OpenStreetmap, GeoRSS, Panoramio, and your data. Starting with a lot of geo-information sources and a powerful library, we will explore how to manage maps inside web pages using basic third-party base maps to the overlay of re-projected vector data, going through styling thematic data and data interaction.
