Mikel Maron has released version 3.1 of WorldKit, the very functional, lightweight, web GIS client that we use at the Journal of Maps. FlashPlayer 8 is now supported, along with the addition of select zoom and pan buttons. There are three things that would really help our use of WK though:
- scale dependent renderer for displaying points and polygons (i.e. a point when zoomed out and a polygon when zoomed in).
- when hovering over an object the description text is displayed, but if this is too long it is cut off the display
- being able to point it at a (MySQL) database to read objects rather than using an XML file
