Mashups OpenLayers

Manchester Map

This is the fifth in a series detailing the projects I have worked on at UCL in the last academic year.


This was born out of Alex acquiring a old (1094) map of Manchester showing the different housing types that existed back then. I put together some image tiles he created of the map, in OpenLayers, and combined it with some existing modern OAC demographic map tiles that I had created for a separate project, and Google mapping and aerial imagery. Vectors are not used on the map, but you can switch between, combine and reorder the raster layers, for quick visual comparison between the maps.

Alex blogs the creation process here, and you can see the map itself here.
