Mapufacture, update

Mapufacture has just been updated with a shaper look, some new features, and some backend improvements.
Credit to Andrew Turner and Guilhem Vellut, whose incredible map & rails hacking skills, and great enthusiasm, are speeding Mapufacture forward. Thanks dudes.
Thing is, we’ve been meaning to hold off the release until a bunch more cool things were coded up, but with all the rails security ruckus, the easiest way to upgrade rails was going to be pushing our latest code. There’s still a bit of polish left to apply, and our roadmap takes in that bunch more cool stuff I just mentioned, so keep watching.

My favorite improvement won’t actually be visible to users at all (yet). Guilhem linked together Mapstraction with Mapufacture, by releasing the YM4R/Mapstraction Rails plugin and integrating it in. This gives us the potential to do some really neat stuff. And this isn’t the last amazing integration among our mapping projects…

    […] Mikel and Andrew write about Mapufacture, a GeoRSS aggregator on which I have also worked. A user can create maps and add feeds to them. Maps are then shared with the other users. For example, one can follow the latest news on earthquakes or browse Reuters news by location. Thanks to Andrew’s tireless work, the site has made a lot of progress in the recent weeks and is now very usable. Please try it and send any feedback you may have. […]
