I am interested to see feature in Giscloud similar to Google Fusion Tables.
The features are:
- renders Google Fusion Tables / GISCloud as Geometries (i.e. as
GeoJSON) in custom-made app (e.g. iPhone/iPad and Android Tablets)
with GoogleMap, Openlayers or Leaflet; and
- renders GISCloud map / tile maps in custom-made app, not using GIScloud GUI.
Is these things doable or plan for GISCloud?
