Offline Maps

Anybody got any user stories / module lists for producing html pages with maps in them for offline use? Users of these pages will not have internet access when using them.

I believe that OpenLayers will help, but not seen any walkthrough examples of how to use it offline.

Mapping from GPX file

I'm putting together a personal site to keep track of local trails; I want to render a map from an uploaded GPX file, no problem so far using FileField, Geocoder and Leaflet. To make it a bit more interesting I would like to add a little more information such as a table or list with Distance, Vertical Climb, Vertical Drop, Grade (average), Grade (max), Altitude (min), Altitude (max) and a chart plotting vertical over distance.

import csv file to geofield

Hi,

I have to import information in a csv with poligones information to node with a geofield field.

I have tried feeds import and gdal, but gdal doesn't recognize the kml field.

A sample file with 3 records is attached.

Can anyone help me with feeds or with a migrate module?

Thanks,
leo

Edition:

I imported the kml data to a text field and extracted the information with geofield from another field!
I uploaded the module and the image of the secciones content type
for this to work, you need migrate_extras module

Google Maps Directions usage with OpenLayers

Hi all,

I have a fresh Drupal installation with OpenLayers on http://www.hartaicristanbul.ro/ . I wonder if it is possible to use Google Maps Directions functionality with OpenLayers.

https://drupal.org/project/getdirections module achieves this without OpenLayers; but I need OpenLayers for displaying my attractions on the Map with tooltip.

Overlay printed maps on digital maps

As a user, I want to take a scanned old paper map (or a scanned aerial photograph), and overlay it on top of a modern digital map.

When I'm viewing the page, I want to be able to adjust the transparency of the overlaid scan, so I can see the modern map beneath it.

This is very helpful when trying to identify the current location of historical features.

Here's a paper map overlaid on a digital map on a Drupal site, though it had to be set up by the administrator and doesn't have the option to adjust transparency: http://gwulo.com/1924-map-hong-kong-western
