Online mapping in China

Posted on

Here’s a short article on online map resources available in China, from the English language online edition of the Shanghai Daily.

The 3D mapping features on Shanghai’s E-city government website were mentioned in the article, but I had a lot of trouble getting the English version page to load, so I will have to try again later I guess.

Still, it is interesting to see how online mapping is being incorporated into daily lives in different parts of the world.

Boston HyperMap Atlas with Google Maps API

Posted on

We received the press release this morning for the Boston HyperMap Atlas from StrataVarious, Inc. which pairs Google Maps with the interactive HyperMap Atlas to link together the basic web mapping interface with an atlas that provides all kinds of information, from historic landmarks to government buildings, to hotels and shopping.

I checked the site out and it’s a pretty cool app. I especially like the historic map layer (since history is one of my specialties) Anyway, definitely check out this site.
