We have a Google map implementation on a website which uses Google maps and kml vector layers. Due to speed and bandwidth issues in transferring kml vector data to mobile/ tablet devices, we need to adopt a better approach which I believe can be achieved through implementation of MapNik and TileStache although I need expert advice on the correct approach to take (eg build a solution from scratch or adopt something like CartoDB/ MapBox etc.)
Need advice on solutions for our mapping website to reduce bandwidth and improve speed of our site which currently uses Google Maps. The initial task is to rebuild the site with layer controls for 3 kml polygon files (ranging in size from around 10Mb to 50Mb plus (although these can be filtered). Very simply, visitors to the site can:
1. Search for a location to centre the map on;
2. Zoom in and out of the map;
3. Turn layers on and off;
4. Display labels on the map for the polygons
Please note: we have a solution built by a Google maps developer which works with kml vector data but it is too slow when viewing maps over mobile networks (tablet and mobile) so the over-riding objective is to create a solution that is optimised using the open source tools available (MapNick/ TileStache) if possible to work quickly and efficiently in both desktop and mobile environments.
No other real interaction is required at this stage but we need to build a solution that will meet future development where users will interact fully with the map layers (selection/ drawing/ shading etc). We have a design agency building the site who you would need to work with to integrate the mapping solution.
We are not wedded to Google Maps so open to other suggestions if you feel these are a better fit for what we need (OpenStreetMap; Bing; MangoMap, MapBox etc etc)
Suggest this will be an initial review of our existing website with advice to establish the correct solution and then will need help implementing/ developing the solution. On that basis happy to receive quotes for the initial consultation only with quotes for the implementation to follow when you have a full understanding of the requirement. We also have existing hosting and Google map development people who can support the implementation and help where required.
