in the last months I wrote my thesis about the new term "Smart Map Browsing"
(used for the usability of web mapping applications). One part of the work was
the analysis of 11 selected Free web mapping applications and Google Maps.
I published the work (available in german and english!) on this website:
For the practical part of this thesis I have realized the animated zooming
feature for OpenLayers . You find a live demo on my thesis website.
The complete subject of the thesis:
"Current state of technology and potential of Smart Map Browsing in web
browsers - using the example of the Free web mapping application OpenLayers"
About me: I studied multimedia technology in Bremen/Germany and I wrote my
thesis at the Free software company Intevation GmbH in Osnabrueck/Germany.
Special thanks go to the OpenLayers community for your help while my
realization of the animated zooming feature!
I'm looking forward to getting feedback.
