Since our project does not fit right into an existing OSGeo project
(though it will involve the use/modification of some of these projects,
e.g. OpenLayers) I posted this status report only on OSGeo-Discuss.
1. What dit I get done this week: I arrived yesterday from a conference
in Croatia so I just got started with the GSoC project (as planned in my
application schedule; I'll catch up in the upcoming weeks!). For now I
downloaded and experimented with MapFish (http://www.mapfish.org). It is
It looks promising and very interesting; the Choropleth map widget
already offers the possibility to create and display thematic maps with
statistical distributions for intervals of values. I will probably use
that as a starting point for the display of OLAP data on a map.
2. What do you plan on doing next week: continue experimenting with
MapFish and ExtJs. Try to understand the function and interaction of
MapFish's server and client parts. Think of a strategy for using the
Mondian OLAP server (and olap4j API) with MapFish (MapFish server part
is written in Python and Mondrian/olap4j is Java).
3. Are you blocked on anything: not yet.
Have a nice weekend!
