This workshop is now in the past, but this home page and applications will remain online for future reference or use.

These demonstration applications use OpenLayers 4.6 to build some basic applications for search and retrieval of series maps, as well as for displaying georeferenced maps.

All these applications below can be downloaded for local use and testing from: https://geo.nls.uk/maps/geocart2018/openlayers.zip

Please also see the accompanying background notes: https://geo.nls.uk/maps/geocart2018/GeoCart-Historical_Maps_Online_Workshop.pdf

We start with three very basic OpenLayers map applications:


These are used to then develop the applications below:

1. Search and retrieval of series maps


OpenLayers Search Viewer with GeoJSON graphic index

1a. Find By Place GEOJSON - OpenLayers Search Viewer with GeoJSON graphic index

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers Search Viewer with GeoServer graphic index

1b. Find By Place GeoServer - OpenLayers Search Viewer with GeoServer graphic index

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers Search Viewer using a Marker Pin

1c. Find By Place With Marker - OpenLayers Search Viewer using a Marker Pin

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



2. Viewing and Interacting with georeferenced maps


OpenLayers Viewer for displaying georeferenced maps with transparency slider

2a. Explore Georeferenced Maps - OpenLayers Viewer for displaying georeferenced maps with transparency slider

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers Split-screen Viewer for comparing georeferenced maps to each other

2b. Side-by-Side / Split-screen viewer - OpenLayers Viewer for comparing georeferenced maps to each other

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers viewer for georeferenced historic map mosaics viewed through a circular spyglass window

2c. Map spy viewer - OpenLayers viewer for georeferenced historic map mosaics viewed through a circular spyglass window

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers Cesium viewer for georeferenced historic map mosaics

2d. 3D viewer - OpenLayers Cesium viewer for georeferenced historic map mosaics

This builds on the initial demo applications above with the following features:



OpenLayers viewer with measurement tools, geolocation, a permalink URL, and an interactive marker

2e. ExploreGeoreferencedMapsPlus - Georeferenced layers with measurement tools, geolocation, a permalink URL, and an interactive marker

This builds on the 2a. Explore Georeferenced Maps application above with the following additional features:
