Got a map in your page?
written over 4 years ago
It was never so easy to add an interactive map into your page!
Apart from that, several aspects immediately convinced me of this project:
- a very straight, professional and mighty API, obviously built for extensibility
- a really great catalogue of examples, covering the whole API
- support for so(!) many map servies
The sudden success of OpenLayers can be seen everywhere. Look hard at your well-known GIS-pages, you will soon recognize the OpenLayers layout everywhere...
The success of OpenLayers and it's ease of use is especially visible in non GIS-web pages like Role Playing Games using OpenLayers for their Walkthroughs (have you seen the Morrowind's map at http://www.uesp.net/maps/mwmap/mwmap.shtml ?) or great stuff like Rosettas disk of languages (see http://dvd.rosettaproject.org/disk_front/index.html), available online as...OpenLayer-Map!
Believe it or not. OpenLayers is the(!) Web-Map API of the future!
And... who the hell do you think provides the users and contributors map of Ohloh...?!
