A hands on introduction to using OpenLayer 3 (OL3) and Leaflet to display spatial data on the web. The workshop will introduce the two libraries, the underpinning concepts and strengths of each, and take delegates through creating a series of examples.
The workshop walks through building the same simple web mapping application first using OpenLayers 3 and then with Leaflet. The steps break down as follows:
Completed versions can be seen here:
First clone or download (and unzip) the repository from GitHub to a suitable location on your local machine.
git clone https://github.com/AstunTechnology/osgis-ol3-leaflet.git
If you are using your own machine then you should be good to go, start building an OpenLayers 3 map.
If you are using the OSGeo Live DVD do the following:
The commands set the keyboard layout to GB, installs
