shrug-l: OpenLayers book

Wed Aug 24 11:59:10 EDT 2011

Hey Shruggers,

I wanted to take a minute to call attention to a new book out by Erik Hazzard, a young Tallahasean GIS developer over at FREAC.  Published through Packt, the book is on OpenLayers, a javascript based free and open source web mapping framework.  It's similar to the ArcGIS JavaScript API, though it supports a wider range of mapping backends, and I believe it is more fully featured.  It communicates readily with ArcGIS products, but also MapServer, GeoServer,  WMS and WFS services, etc.  Here's one particularly impressive example of an OpenLayers map:

Check it out!
