Some background =============== This tool was created in the context of #makeopendata hackdays for this particular project http://makeopendata.ch/forum/discussion/13/wandervorschlaege However, much bigger motivation was that me getting started with using OpenLayers and the awesome http://api.geo.admin.ch/ APIs. The tool allows you to create(digitize) a track(polyline) using Swisstopo maps and save the result in a Fusion Table. LIVE demo URL: http://www.vasile.ch/hacks/geoadmin-tracks-editor/ Fusion Table URL: http://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?dsrcid=1695530 Fusion Table KML link(for Google Earth): http://www.google.com/fusiontables/exporttable?query=select+col2+from+1695530+&o=kmllink&g=col2 How to use this tool ==================== If you are lazy just watch this video http://screencast.com/t/zVkUaKCQgfZA or - open http://www.vasile.ch/hacks/geoadmin-tracks-editor/ - navigate to the area where you want to record a new track (use searchbox for quickly lookup known names) - click 'Add new track', the mouse cursor will change, you can start registering your track. When done, double click to finish registering - fill the Track name and click 'SAVE' - in few seconds the track will be stored in FT and the KML layer will be refreshed How to run this tool on localhost/your_domain ============================================= 0. Prerequisites - you need a webserver running PHP with cURL lib client (my configuration is Apache/2.2.19 with PHP 5.3.6 on OSX Lion) - you need a Google Account for managing Fusion Tables - if you plan to use it on a non-localhost domain then you need to register in order to have access to the Swisstopo map tiles http://www.geo.admin.ch/internet/geoportal/de/home/services/geoservices/display_services/api_services/order_form.html 1. Build the 'KML backend' Create a similar FusionTable to this one http://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?dsrcid=1695530 - two fields are required: name(text), geometry(location) - http://screencast.com/t/VrECESWmnML - the table needs to be "public" or "unlisted" - http://screencast.com/t/tMNIFy1P6Mb - copy the FT table id somewhere - http://screencast.com/t/SsBJwdH1 (in my case 1695530) 2. Prepare the PHP 'API' for FusionTables - make a copy of api/ft_login_data.sample.php to api/ft_login_data.php cp api/ft_login_data.sample.php api/ft_login_data.php - edit api/ft_login_data.php and replace the $FUSION_TABLES_PARAMS dummy values with the table id, the google username and password used for the table
