In this paper we describe the software architecture of a prototype web-based GIS system for the deliver environmental research data in Ireland. The central component in this system is OpenStreetMap which provides the base layers of geographical data. An OpenStreetMap data collection campaign for our university town was carried out earlier this year yieldeding a spatially rich OpenStreetMap representation of Maynooth. Our server (OpenStreetMap database, supporting software, and specially generated map tiles) has been used by several GIS and location-based services projects in our department. One such example is a mobile device-based pedestrian navigation system is described in this paper. We describe some of the components of our server system. This includes a description of the management of the local copy of the OpenStreetMap database and the generation of sets of customised map tiles.

Transcript

  • 1. Development of a server to manage a customised local version of OpenStreetMap in Ireland
  • 2. Department of Computer Science National University of Ireland Maynooth Błażej Ciepłuch [email_address] Jianghua Zheng [email_address] Peter Mooney [email_address] Adam Winstanley [email_address]
  • 3. Overview
    • Projects in our group using Openstreetmap
    • Collection and import of data into OSM database
    • A web application to use the custom tiles with our additional data
  • 4. Why we chose OpenStreetMap ? Haptic& Indoor Navigation Ricky Jacob Bus Tracking Bashir Shalik Simplification of Complex Polygons Fangli Ying Pedestrian Navigation Jinghua Zheng Visualisation of Enviromental Data Common Platform OSM Błażej Ciepłuch Haptic& Indoor Navigation Ricky Jacob Topology & Geometry Analysys Padraig Corcoran Open Access to Geospatial data Peter Mooney
  • 5. Research Objectives
    • First steps in building framework for open access to enviromental data ( with Irish EPA )
    • Particular emphasis on delivery to Location Based Services and also visualisation
    • Assist in growing OSM usage in Ireland
  • 6. Creation of Maynooth map
  • 7. How do we get OSM data for our project ? Cloudmade Download webpage http://downloads.cloudmade.com / Geofabrik Download webpage http://download.geofabrik.de/ OR Our own Postgis OSM Server OSM XML OSM XML
  • 8. Adding our own spatial data to our OSM database Our own Postgis OSM Server Irish Enviromental Protection Agency http://www.epa.ie
  • 9. Tiles generated with Mapnik - Enviromental data Waste Water Treatment Plants Air Quality Stations EPA Licensed facilities
  • 10. XML Style file and result of redendering
  • 11. EPA Licensed facilities around Dublin
  • 12. Waste Water Treatment Plants around Cork
  • 13. Irish Language Map of Dublin Area
  • 14. More detailed Irish Language Map of Maynooth
  • 15. Local OSM tiles for Interiors of Buildings Maping of interiors on Maynooth Campus Maping of interiors on Maynooth Campus Maping of interiors on Maynooth Campus
  • 16. Our own Postgis OSM Server Mapnik Map Redender Different Outputs from Server Sets Of Tiles
    • Different Outputs for EPA data
    • KML file
    • RAW data in XML
    • WMS server
    • SHP file
    • Possibility to open in QGIS
  • 17. Local Tiles

  • 26. OSM offers our research work access to spatial data for Ireland
    • Spatial data is still very expensive to purchase in Ireland
    • Google Maps and Bing Maps have very sporadic coverage - poor in some rural areas
    • Difficult to access government and national datasets
  • 27. Overlay of OSM data in Ireland on Bing and Google Maps
  • 28. Overlay of OSM data in Ireland on Bing and Google Maps
  • 29. There are examples of urban locations where OSM has been not surveyed and Google/Bing is better Drogheda, Co. Louth Ireland (population 30,000)
  • 30.
    • Extended local OSM database (including enviromental data as a example)
    • Gain a better understanding of OSM process from data collection to display
    • Store once – use many times
