More NodeDB changes

Filed under: News & Events — evilbunny @ 5:38 pm

In the last lask couple of weeks I’ve added extensive code to NodeDB, I’ve also updated the digital elevation data to 3 arc second released by NASA, to produce much better quality elevation cross section images.

Below is an example of the difference in image quality as a result:

As a result of the upgrade I started out with example Google code, but this involved xml data files, but due to having arbitary data in the system caused the maps to break, so after much head banging I ended up replacing this code with much simplier HTTP/CSV data that won’t break if there is a stray & or the much more commonly & in html entities for multilingual entries.

Basically AJAX minus the xml is much better imho, it tends to break a whole lot less…
