This blog contains site updates and general information.

Today I added the feed from Google Maps Mania to the RSS aggregator.

The Google Maps API is missing one important element for the UK - the ability to type in an address and then find that address on the map. This is known as geocoding: turning an address into map co-ordinates. So until there is a reliable geocoder for the UK in the Google Maps API I had to turn elsewhere.

After a few tests with WFS and parsing the GML it looked like it put too much load on the client, so we tried a different approach. We loaded the WMS as normal and then captured the point where a user clicks and sent this point and other paramters back to MapServer as a GetFeatureInfo request.

Big thanks to Stuart at LP Archaeology for giving me access to their MapServer so we can explore these things further.

I'm soon to begin testing MapServer to serve up dynamic layers to my Google Map application via WMS (Web Mapping Service) and WFS (Web Feature Service).

The UK Archaeology Map is now fully enabled to export and import XML that uses the MIDAS XML schema. So long as the XML can be reached via a URL and it is in the MIDAS XML standard then the data can be displayed on the map.

I've added 2 new RSS feeds to the site and the Archaeology RSS Aggregator: UK Archaeology Digs and Archaeology Conferences. I've also geo-referenced the Conferences and put them on the UK Archaeology Map.

I've finished off enabling MIDAS XML outputs from the UK Archaeology Map catalogues - finally. A lot of other stuff got in the way but I've finished off the admin section and loaded up all of the English Heritage Thesauri tables and data.

You can find the 1st output here:

http://www.online-archaeology.co.uk/UKArchaeologyMap/UKArchaeologyMapViewCatalogue/tabid/54/Default.aspx

Look at the 'MIDAS XML' column and you'll see an XML icon on the 'Airfields' row. I can publish Category from the admin section and they'll appear in this table. I've only published Airfields so far to see the take-up.

If you're interested in data standards for archaeology data you'll find most of what you need here:
