Client-side versus server-side geoprocessing: Benchmarking the performance of web browsers processing geospatial data using common GIS operations.

Are web browsers ready to handle a larger portion of the processing load in our GIS applications? Web-based GIS and mapping applications are traditionally based on a client-server model, where most of the data processing work is placed on the server. This study examines what happens when that processing load is shifted to the client, using JavaScript to process geospatial data with GIS operations directly in the browser.The time needed to complete common GIS tasks using the JavaScript library JSTS Topology Suite were benchmarked in popular web browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari. The GIS operations buffer, union, and Voronoi diagram were tested with a suite of points, lines, and polygons ranging in size from 10 up to 100,000 vertices. The testing platforms included Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops and laptops.The same geoprocessing tests were conducted on a cloud-based Linux server using the Java library JTS Topology Suite as a performance comparison of server-side processing applications. The various testing configurations were then analyzed to see how browsers stack up to the performance of traditional client-server applications.

A jumpstart for your mobile map app

Would you like to get started programming mobile mapping applications? There's a lot to keep in mind: a responsive layout, a mapping framework, positioning of controls and buttons, offline caching of tiles, and finally compiling it all into a mobile app.This presentation walks you through some problems and solutions, culminating in MobileMapStarter. Techniques discussed include jQuery Mobile, Leaflet, and PhoneGap/Cordova.

Web and mobile enterprise applications

This presentation will discuss enterprise web mapping and mobile applications that we've been developing for large utilities and communications companies, based on a number of open source geospatial components, including PostGIS, MapFish, GeoServer and Leaflet. It will discuss development of offline mobile applications using both PhoneGap to compile to native applications on Android, iOS and Windows, using a SpatiaLite database, and also use of HTML5 offline storage. We will discuss ideas on how to create extremely easy to use but still powerful applications, using approaches inspired by consumer web mapping sites rather than traditional GIS. The presentation will not be deeply technical but will include material of interest to developers as well as end users and managers.

Tracking Slippy Map Analytics

Google Analytics is a great tool for monitoring and reporting on website traffic and user interactions but what it doesn't tell you is that 75% of the time your user's zoom in two levels every time they start to use your map or that external soils layer you added is taking an average three seconds to load. Client side map monitoring adds the missing chapters needed to complete your geo-analytics storybook.We'll briefly walk-through how to setup your slippy map to start tracking analytics, what can be tracked, and what can be discovered.

Running Your Own Rendering Infrastructure

In addition to hosting the popular OSM-base Toner, Watercolor, and Terrain tile sets, Stamen incorporates custom cartography into much of our client work. This is a behind-the-scenes walkthrough covering the evolution of our rendering infrastructure and the peripheral services that help to make our work unique. Topics covered include the image processing used for Watercolor and Map Stack, raster manipulation for Terrain, Surging Seas, and the Chesapeake Bay Program, as well as the use of vector tiles (for both OSM and other data) to support Pinterest and future work.

Mobile vector map rendering with Mapbox tools

Rendering maps from vector data is the next wave in custom cartography, and nowhere is this more important than on mobile devices. Modern mobile devices have high-powered GPUs for hardware-accelerated rendering and a multitude of sensors for environmental input, but also need to be keenly aware of network bandwidth constraints and have the ability to go offline. Mapbox is working on a new suite of mobile tools that render constantly up-to-date vector OpenStreetMap data into maps on the device. These maps can be customized completely client-side and even tap into ambient sensors such as GPS, compass, and pedometer. This session will show what's possible with this new open source toolkit, including client-side map style customization and influencing the user experience with sensor inputs, and will talk about high-level design goals of the tools and where they are headed next.
