Talk:OpenLayers Dynamic POI

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I think the dynamic layer wonderful. I work on Wikipedia at: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProjekt_Georeferenzierung/Wikipedia-World

and we support on the german Wikipedia now OSM: http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikide-l/2008-January/020160.html

So it would be nice to work together for an Wikipedia-POI-Layer. --Kolossos 19:07, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Most of things required for implementation of dynamic POI layer for Openlayers are described on this page. So... how can I help with ? ;) --Dido 22:40, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok than I need to try it alone on Toolserver. I had the hope that someone with more experience could help so that I only need to work on the server-side part. I try to open http://svn.moonbase.sk/sites/www.freemap.sk/features/index.php with my SVN-program, but this file couldn't found.
An account on the toolserver should be no problem. I think it could be a killer-application. --Kolossos 07:53, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I totaly don't know how wikipedia-thing are done, so I need help with this... could you contact me directly at dodi (at) moonbase (dot) sk (but messages from gmail and yahoo are droped by spam filter :S ) --Dido 21:09, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

The links in the article to MarkerGrid.js and MarkerTile.js appear to be out of date/broken. I spent the best part of today trying to get the linked files to work, then decided to include the files used on freemap.sk and discovered that they worked.


It took me some time to figure out a get_poi_url function that worked for my application. Dynamic poi loading works now wonderfully, but if I substitute a category icon by its subcategory icons, the category icon is only removed, when the map is moved, but not, when its zoomed. Any hint how to fix this? Thanks. --sutor 22:46, 17 July 2009


Hi! Is this still maintained and working with recent/latest versions of Openlayers? Mayeul 22:59, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

You might want to see the example here Dmgroom 02:11, 15 March 2012 (UTC)


Is it possible to restrict the query to a certain number of zoom levels? If you zoom out and show all POI, then the request and display will be slow! Mayeul 22:59, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

OpenLayers.js 2.12 no longer supports loadURL

OpenLayers 2.12 no longer supports loadURL and thus leads to an error in MarkerTile.js I'm still in the process of building my page, but changing the loadFeaturesForRegion:function seems to work:

   loadFeaturesForRegion:function(success, failure) {
     // OpenLayers.loadURL(this.url, null, this, success,failure); // <- no more supported
     if ( this.url ){OpenLayers.Request.GET({url: this.url, success: success, scope: this})}
    },
