The use of geobrowsers (web mapping applications) has increased considerably over the last number of years. Thematic mapping has a long history in geography but the new geobrowsers tend not to focus on this aspect of geographic information representation. On this blog, I want to evaluate the current support and "workarounds" for thematic mapping in selected geobrowsers (OpenLayers, Google Earth and Maps).
This project is initialised by a master's thesis in Geographical Information Science at University of Edinburgh.
Happy for any feedback!
