- How to Start Web Mapping? 28 answers
I am part of a small research project where we are leading field experiments in a small watershed, on some remote location far away from our research institute.
I have a series of vector data, shapefiles actually, consisting of various points, lines, polygons, each one representing some specific entity on the field: either rain gage stations, drillings, boreholes, contours, roads, parcels, etc... Also, for those entities, I have some photos taken with a camera to illustrate the actual state of the entity.
I would like to build a series of maps. I want them to be interactive, so that people can choose thematic layer entities of interest and display them, measure distances, etc. Also, it would be good to run them locally on the browser, without the need to install some third party software.
I don't have a clear idea on the way to go. Can anyone help pointing me in the right direction ?
