Blog Number 150: EPFL Online !

I'm very happy to annouce from FOSSGIS 2010 the launch of a new great MapFish application: the map portal of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology:
A lot of interesting features and characteristics can be highlighted:
- Usage of OpenStreetMap data
- Very high aerial image resolution: 5 cm
- Routing
- Floor management
- About 100 layers
- Powerful search engine (location, persons)
- Permalink
- Possibility to integrate the main application in HTML pages through the API:
- Fast navigation due to load balancing and tiling of the layers
And soon, you'll be able to play with the mobile version or the 3D viewer. Stay tune !
