GServiceMiner

A library to mine data from the Google Maps Control for ASP.NET

Setup

You need to have PhantomJS installed on your PATH.

Usage

var miner = new GServiceMiner("http://shuttle.concordia.ca/Map.aspx");
miner.on('data', function(data){
var points = data.points.map(function(point){
    return {
    element : point.ID,
    longitude : point.Longitude,
    latitude : point.Latitude
    };
});
console.log( 'new data ='+JSON.stringify(points, null, 4) );
});

Tests

npm test

API

The library provides with an eventsEmitter that periodically emits the data collected from the Maps Control.

GServiceMiner

Exposed by require('gserviceminer')

GServiceMiner(url: String)

Creates a new eventsEmitter that mines the page at url for data

GServiceMiner(url: String, opts: Object)

The following options are supported by the constructor:

  • refresh: the period, in ms, at which the eventsEmitter should mine the page. Default is 1 minute

How it works

GServiceMiner uses phantom-node to create an instance of the target webpage, and extracts the information from it.

Features

For now, only Points (e.g., actual markers on the map) are retrieved from the GService.
