W3C session: Map Compositions format and a Map Whiteboard: Collaborative Map-Making

Last week, a two-week long W3C workshop brought together experts in geographic standards and Web map data services, Web mapping client tools and applications, and Web platform standards and browser development, to explore the potential of maps for the Web was concluded.

On Wednesday 30th September there was a session dedicated to Advanced web graphics for mapping that continued with one hour panel session.

Karel Charvat on behalf of Plan4all, Lesprojekt, BOSC and Asplan Viak gave a presentation about the project to create a Google Docs-like map application and map composition format.

Later the team (including Karel, Stein Runar Bergheim and Raitis Bersinz) held a breakout, in which they presented the application and architecture of the system in more detail, leaving us to ponder if the format has a similar objective as maps in HTML might.


Please comment about the Map Composition Format and Map Whiteboard application concepts here, where Karel, Runar and Raitis will be able to respond.
