I have a dataset with start and end points of lines. Columns in the table are
unique_line_id, line_start_point_lat, line_start_point_lon, line_end_point_lat, line_end_point_lon
I need to use this in my website (python,mysql) to draw lines as map overlays connecting these points.
- According to the user selection, the map will display one or more lines from the above table
- I need to zoom the map to fit the line/lines in the view when the page is loaded, and center the map accordingly
- I would like to add a small thumbnail image in the middle of each line
I am looking for open source technologies to use in my website which would not need a paid license. (I have a vague idea to use google maps as base map images and use google JS API or D3.js, I've also seen references to GeoDjango) Please let me know any demo sites too, with one or more of these implemented.
