Fun with MapStore: Italian UNESCO Sites as OpenData

Dear All,
there days the Italian UNESCO Sites of interests have been released as OpenData via this portal (NOTICE; we were not involved :)).

The data can be downloaded, there are WMS and WFS end endpoints available (using GeoServer), and there is a small webgis based on OpenLayers (which could actually be improved a litlle bit 😉 ).
Well, OpenData + Open Services, this is really nice so I thought I could share a map I created with the cloud version of MapStore the same data with proper querying capabilities and so on.

So there you go, here below you can find a pretty simple map that just shows our UNESCO items, you can embed it in your site with the following HTML code:

Next steps would be customizing the info boxes and probaly adding more  markers (get some info here) but I guess for the moment this is enough from us :). Ah yeah, I would probably also make good use of the buffer WMS parameter of configuration to make sure symbologies don’t get cut in tiled development, here is some additional infomation.

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!
