During this week I was basically working on visualizing GIS data over a base layer from OpenStreetMaps. Visualizing GIS data this way makes sense only for the data that relates to earth's geography. With each piece of GIS data, MySQL allows you to store a Spatial Reference ID (SRID) which specifies spatial reference systems that relates to the stored data. Hence that need to be taken into consideration when visualizing GIS data.
During this week I managed to get 'visualizing GIS data with OpenStreetMaps' feature up and running. However a lot more needs to be done to bring it up to the standard. Tooltips, proper initial placing and zooming levels, more options for base layers being few of them. So I will be doing those during the next week.
