This looks beautiful. Very easy to use, and that's most important. I'm
bookmarking it and looking forward for new releases :)

A great feature would be the "draw line along road" like Google has. I'm
not sure how that could be done without having your own router machine.
Maybe borrowing OSRM-s routing capacity is possible?

> Hi,
>
> This email for introducing the "uMap project".
>
> TL;DR: http://umap.fluv.io/ (demo site).
>
> The goal of the project is to provide an app for easy creation of slippy
> maps for *non technical* end user, with POI, polygons, etc., and
> embed/share them "all over the Big Internet".
>
> This project comes *without* any hosting service SaaS like: it just
> provides the app and will let interested people host (and customize) their
> own instances.
>
> It's in alpha state, I'm preparing the 0.1 release.
>
> Here are the already covered features:
> - create/edit/delete maps
> - choose the tile layers
> - add/edit/delete Markers, Polyline, Polygon
> - manage categories of POIs, to change icon or colors all at once
> - import GeoJSON and KML from a file or an URL
> - login/logout
> - manage permissions (choose who can edit: only owner, selected editors or
> everybody)
> - choose icon type
> - add pictograms to icons (closed list for now)
> - change icon color (from POI itself or for a group of POIs)
> - choose the licence of the datas
> - manage a caption for the map
> - get an iframe to spread the map
> - all is i18n compliant
>
> Nice features to add in the future:
> - import POIs from XAPI
> - upload custom icons
> - add download option for getting data in GeoJSON
> - better mobile UI
> - choose colors from a palette
> - ...
>
> About the modules:
>
> * Leaflet-Storage [1]: Leaflet plugin, built on top of Leaflet.Draw et
> Leaflet.Hash, handling all the client (JavaScript) part; it doesn't know
> nothing about the backend, so one can also create a Rails, Node or whatever
> backend
> * django-leaflet-storage [2]: Leaflet-Storage backend django powered; it's
> an app, so reusable out the uMap project
> * uMap [3]: Django project gluing the previous modules, which goal is only
> to have a plug'n play solution, with some more CSS than the default neutral
> modules
>
> How to help?
> - test on http://umap.fluv.io and add issues for bugs or enhancements
> - add new translations (only French has been done)
> - host an (alpha) instance
> - code (python, JavaScript, HTML, CSS... or other if one wants to create
> his own backend) :)
>
>
> Thanks in advance for feedback and help,
>
> Happy Open 2013!
