Social Networks on OpenLayers
Jorge Sanz, Prodevelop
As part of the web 2.0 movement, a number of social networks are adding geospatial information to their contents. Thus, a large amount of information can be shown on a map from different sources like twitter, foursquare, flickr and others.
On this presentation we will show how we added those services as OpenLayers classes getting as much information as possible (descriptions, thumbnails, links, etc.) displayed on top of any base layer.
