Example Data for Maprosoft

Introduction

This page provides some example data that can be downloaded and used to help build other data for use by Maprosoft.

Understanding our Example Data

Please note that our example data is only to be used to help you understand how to create data for use by Maprosoft. Our example data should not be used in any production system.

Shapefile Example Data

Shapefile example data is provided in zip format. After downloading a zip file, extract its contents to examine how the data is used by Maprosoft. The file with the .meta.xml suffix defines all the metadata. Examine the contents of this file in relation to the attributed of the DBF file (the file with the .dbf suffix). Refer to the Shape File Data page for further information about shape file data for use by Maprosoft.

  • Area of Interest Example Data (Shapefile Format):
    The shape file comprises a polygon, which the .meta.xml file indicates is the area of interest by defining the content of the <areaOfInterest> as true.
  • Libraries Example Data (Shapefile Format):
    The shape file contains point data identifying the location of libraries. The .meta.xml file provides details about each library that appears in the popup window on the map after clicking on a library.
  • Parks Example Data (Shapefile Format):
    The shape file contains polygon data identifying park areas. The .meta.xml file provides details about each park that appears in the popup window on the map after clicking on a park.
  • Railways Example Data (Shapefile Format):
    The shape file contains polyline data identifying railways. The .meta.xml file defines a template for interpreting each record in the shape file.

KML Example Data

Maprosoft can interpret data in KML format. Each <Placemark> within the KML defines a single feature. The content of the <description> tags define feature metadata which will be displayed in the popup windows on the map.

Note that all geometry data within the KML must be of the same type since the data in the KML file will be associated with a single feature type in Maprosoft.

GeoRSS Feed Example Data

Maprosoft can interpret data in GeoRSS format. Each <item> within the GeoRSS content defines a single feature. The content of the <description> tags define feature metadata which will be displayed in the popup windows on the map.

Note that all geometry data within the GeoRSS Feed must be of the same type since the data in the GeoRSS Feed will be associated with a single feature type in Maprosoft.

Custom Feed Example Data

Maprosoft can interpret data in custom formats so long as the start and end of each of the following match a fixed pattern:

  • Feature
  • Feature Title
  • Feature Info
  • Feature Latitude
  • Feature Longitude
  • Sydney DAs Example Data (Custom XML format):
    This xml file contains development application information in a custom XML format that can be interpreted \ by Maprosoft. For this XML file, a feed subscription can be set up using the following custom feed format patterns:
    • Feature Start/End: <Application> and </Application>
    • Feature Title Start/End: <Location> and </Location>
    • Feature Info Start/End: <Description> and </Description>
    • Feature Latitude Start/End: <Latitude> and </Latitude>
    • Feature Longitude Start/End: <Longitude> and </Longitude>
