This is the roadmap for Maps and Semantic Maps. If you have ideas or other feedback, please add it to the discussion page.

Fixed plans

Well, not completely fixed, but a good reason is needed to make any changes here.

Version 1.1

  • Split coordinate parsing and formatting into distinct classes and utilize the MapsLocation class.

Version 1.2

  • Remove compatibility with PHP < 5.3
  • Implement new settings system.

Plans without a version

  • Full KML and GIS support
  • Static map support
  • Better internal representations of geographical entities. Libraries for this probably already exist and might be useful.
  • Spatial extensions (or similar) support for Semantic Maps. This is made difficult due to the SMW storage abstraction layer.

Further idea's

  • Route functionality with a "display route" or "route" parser hook
  • Usage of the Mapstraction library
  • Client side marker grouping. Example. Article.
  • Google Streetview support
  • Google Sky support "The sky has different system of coordinates (Ra/Dec) but the logic is similar to lat/long. --DeepSkyPedia (talk, visit 09:37, July 9, 2010 (UTC)"
