Spatial Queries come to Google Fusion Tables

November 12th, 2010 Comments off

Google announced that Maps Data API will be closed next year and they offer a cool replacement : Fusion Tables

Fusion Tables have support for spatial entities but there was a luck of spatial function until yesterday. They announced spatial queries are supported at Fusion Tables.

As far as I see, there are two new functions which are ST_INTERSECTS and ST_DISTANCE. This is a good news that developers can use Fusion Tables instead of Spatial Databases at some point.

Hope they will add more spatial functions to Fusion Tables.

iExtMap for iOS

August 24th, 2010 Comments off

I have been quite busy with several projects and I can’t find time to write on my blog.

I have been working on a project to show different GIS services (incl. ArcGIS server, WMS and KML/GeoRSS) on iOS devices, especially on IPhone, which is named iExtMap.

iExtMap is a mobile GIS viewer for iOS (IPhone, IPod and IPad). It is a hybrid application, map part is based on Google Maps JS API v3 and other parts are native. This hybrid structure saves a lot of time during development phase. This first version is just a viewer, but I’ll add more features like identify or query in next releases.

There is also a new web site both for iExtMap and ExtMap Framework, which is

iExtMap is a free application downloadable from App Store for now and I want this remains same if I’ll find sponsors or advertisers for iExtMap. If you or your company is interested in iExtMap, please do not hesitate to contact me via alper [(at)] mekansal (dot) com
