The Ordnance Survey has featured my “Sky Cam” implementation of their OpenSpace API.
On my webpage you can click on a map marker to view the latest skycam image. The map is created using the Ordnance Survey OpenSpace API including the loadurl AJAX method. Zoom in on the map and you’ll see it’s a real Ordnance Survey map.
There is also a Google map version.
We have been doing some work with AJAX methods provided by the OS Openspace API. To help anyone else out there working on this we have provided a simple example that loads a list of coordinates and URLs from a text file and uses these to add markers to a base map. In this example the marker, when clicked, reveals a live “sky cam” image, usually provided by a personal weather station website.
The application is created using the Ordnance Survey OpenSpace API including their loadurl AJAX method. Zoom in on the map and you’ll see it’s a real OS map! We also have a version using Google Maps.
We have created a simple map displaying real-time data for a local weather station in Wiltshire using the OS Openspace API. At present the page refreshes in order to reload data but we will seek to use AJAX to overcome this.
