Developer’s Corner: MapStore 1.1.0 released!

Dear All,
we are proud to announce that we just released MapStore version 1.1.0.

This is the latest official release of MapStore, the simple and intuitive way to create, save and share maps.
MapStore is based on the GeoExplorer Open Source framework and is licensed under the GPL license.

With this release we have the following new features:

  • added german translation to the UI supported languages
  • added a new demo gallery with a brand new Marker Configure example
  • new UI configuration options (customPanels, tab, portalConfig) to build a flexible interface for your map applications
  • embed a map directly from MapManager
  • many improvements to the WMSGetFeatureInfo plugin (optional tabbed view, single popup view, loading mask)
  • loading mask for Metadata Explorer application
  • many bugfixes included

If you need further info look at the complete list of included issues.

With MapStore you can mashup contents from Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, Bing or specific WMS services provided by you or third party content providers.
MapStore uses internally GeoStore, (the GeoSolutions Open Source engine for resource storing and retrieving) for managing users   as well as maps definitions. Moreover MapStore uses Http-proxy to communicate with remote servers, such as the third party WMS services used in your maps.

Visit our online demo or download the MapStore binary, read the Quick Start guide and start to create and share your own maps. If you need more info, please check to the complete documentation wiki.

If you have questions or if you just want to talk to us about using our tools in your project, please, subscribe to the mailing list here. In any case, do not hesitate to contact us.

Happy mapping to everybody!

The GeoSolutions team,
