3D terrains with Cesium
Previously, I’ve used three.js to create 3D terrain maps in the browser ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ). It worked great for smaller areas, but three.js doesn’t have built-in support for tiling and advanced LOD algorithms needed to render large terrains. So I dec...

Showing geotagged photos on a Leaflet map
Using Instagram for my real-time travel map had too many limitations, so I decided to use Google+ photos or Picasa Web Albums instead. I've create a new plugin, Leaflet.Photo , that allows you to add geotagged photos to your map, from any source.  The plugi...

Hi! I'm using Leaflet.markercluster, and I don't know if there is an OpenLaters 3.0 equivalent.

Real time satellite tracking of your journeys - how does it work?
I'm back in Oslo after my 25 days ski trip across Nordryggen in Norway . It was a great journey, and I would highly recommend doing all or parts of it if you enjoy cross-country skiing. Just be prepared for shifting weather conditions. @thematicmapping @map...

I am amazed at your 3D mapping work but unfortunately I can't follow it technically. Do you know of some kind soul (or a paid service) that can provide me a 3D map of a region if I provide the 4 corners of the domain with the GPS coordinates? I tried to use Google Earth Pro and couldn't make proper use of it either. Oh well!

Geotagging photos using GPS tracks, ExifTool and Picasa
I take a lot of photos while trekking, and most of the time I'm also carrying a GPS with me. As my camera don't have a built-in GPS, my photos are not geotagged while shooting. Luckily, this is an easy task if you've kept your GPS logs from the trip.  I'm s...

I use my phone to record GPS data. But considering a dedicated GPS for the long treks.
Then I just load the gpx file into lightroom and auto map them to the images.
