Here's a very basic question for you all.
I've got 17,000 polygons in a GeoDjango database. How do I create a slippy web map that can display these polygons?
In other words, do I:
- load a GMap, get the boundaries, each time the map moves, make an Ajax call to the Django db, load the polygons...
- make my own map tiles in advance (if so, how?)
- something else?
I'd like users to be able to view the polygons on the map. I'd also like users to be able to search for a point, using GMaps geocoder or something similar, and load up the polygons within the borders of the map.
What client-side technology should I be using?
