As promised, we’re back from a quiet weekend gorging on turkey and pumpkin pie for another App Hack. For this week’s challenge, we are going to explore how to display data on a Map. First, we want you to check out a fantastic project called Pac-X, which will be the source of our data. Go ahead, check it out! We’ll wait. (Hint – while you’re there, be sure to register so you can get access to the data.)
Okay, now that you’re briefed on the project (how cool is that?), it’s time to get to work. We want to take some of the data from Pac-X’s Wave Gliders (seriously, how COOL is THAT?) and plot it on a map using Enyo and its Map control. For the purposes of this example, we’ll keep it simple. It will be up to you to make it rock and roll.
