An open source mapping primer

You now need a way to embed a map, manipulate the map tiles, and overlay other data onto the map. Leaflet is a popular choice for doing this. It's an open source Javascript library that lets you easily create "slippy" maps with tiled base layers, panning and zooming, and various layered features such as markers at specific geographical coordinates (i.e. latitude and longitude). It handles interactions with the map, has a fairly rich and well-documented API, and also works with a wide collection of plugin that provide additional features. Read more

  • Ocs-server 0.1 Technology Preview released! (with cats!)

  • dmMediaConverter Review - Converting Videos Has Never Been Easier
    dmMediaConverter is described by its developer as an FFmpeg frontend (GUI), but regular users only need to know that it's an application that allows them to quickly convert files from one format to another, in a simple and intuitive way.

  • Goggles Music Manager 1.0.7 Adds Support for Ratings and Tags to Filters, More

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
