Ptolemy – rendering maps in the browser (Julian Viereck, 20min)

The web platform has many maps: Google, Bing, Nokia, OpenStreetMap… they all have their own maps and APIs to embed them. However, rendering maps offline in the browser is not there yet. This is where Ptolemy comes in. It’s a project from Mozilla to see if rendering maps in the browser can be done using the web platform and provide sufficient good offline capabilities.
