The Problem:

  • Many organizations developing map widgets.

    • Duplication of effort. No way to reuse tools developed for one map widget with another

    • Difficult for user to combine “feeds” from different systems into one map

    • Widgets fail to operate when a required, tightly-coupled, custom map widget is unavailable (e.g. no Google Earth server available)

    • Custom map widget may be unacceptable to user (e.g. map is 2d, user requires 3d view, Google Earth too expensive, etc…)

      The Solution:

  • Common Map Widget API

Common Map Widget API

The first principle of design patterns is, Program to an interface, not an implementation – Design Patterns (Introduction)

Approach:

  • Define a set of named channels and messages describing basic map operations

  • Don’t tie API to any particular implementation or map renderer (e.g. Google Earth)

  • Abstract operations away from physical map as much as possible. Any widget can subscribe to map channels and react appropriately – not just a map

Approach (continued):

  • Don’t try to include everything. Try for the 80-20 rule. Support non core functionality via API “extensions”

  • Many users are data viewers – not data authors. Additional non core functionality often not required for data viewing.

  • Current State:

    • Version 1.1 finalized March 2013

    • Version 1.2 now under development

      • Intents

      • Formalize extensions

      • More...

  • Implementations:

    • JC2CUI – Reference Map Widget. Pluggable architecture, supports dynamically selected map renderer. JavaScript library can be reused for any desired renderer. Current implementations include Google Maps API version 2, Google Maps API version 3, Google Earth Plugin, OpenLayers 2.12.

    • Army – Google Earth Plugin based Map Widget with Army extensions. JavaScript wrapper library can be reused for any desired renderer. NASA World Wind implementation under development.

    • GCSS-I3 – NASA World Wind and Open Layers based implementations.
