A Plugin For Your Mapping Needs – jQuery Geo
jQuery Geo is a plugin for the popular framework that provides an easy-to-use API for map/geolocation related actions.
The plugin uses the open source map servers like Open Street Map, WMS and Esri ArcGIS (Open Street Map by default) for pulling the map data and can:
- show mapping data and handle direct user interaction with the map
- use geospatial functions like calculating bounding boxes, measuring the distance between geometries, etc.
The maps created are mobile-friendly and have lots of built-in methods for customization.
jQuery Geo is very well-documented and supported with a bunch of examples.
