Wiring Leaflet, ESRI-leaflet, and Angular for a web map

1 Comment
Basic prototype wiring to map geospatial information using Leaflet, ESRI-leaflet, Angular 4.  There are several nice examples out there, but it is a quick and dirty way of putting all things together and display the map using Angular/Cli.

Step 1. Generate an angular project from angular/cli
                ng new leafletPrototype

Step2. Install all dependencies
a.     Npm install leaflet --save
b.     Nmp install esri-leaflet --save
c.      Npm install @types/leaflet –save

Your pacakage.json will looks like –
"dependencies": {
    "@angular/common": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/compiler": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/core": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/forms": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/http": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/router": "^4.0.0",
    "@types/leaflet": "^1.0.69",
    "core-js": "^2.4.1",
    "esri-leaflet": "^2.1.1",
    "leaflet": "^1.2.0",
    "rxjs": "^5.1.0",
    "zone.js": "^0.8.4"

Step 3. Configure .angular-cli.json
Add leaflet and esri-leaflet styles and scripts in .angular-cli.json
"styles": [

      "scripts": ["../node_modules/leaflet/dist/leaflet.js",

Step 4. Now, run “ng serve” and see if any errors while importing leaflet libraries.

Compute zonal statistics on area of interest polygon on fly

Esri Leaflet Dynamic TileLayer Plugin Example

Be The First To Comment
While working in one my Esri-Leaflet based application, I am stumbled on rendering dynamic map layers on tiled basis. Esri leaflet-api does the perfect job on non-tiled layer display but L.esri.DynamicMapLayer, doesn’t provide the tiled dynamic map layers. Looking around I came across the Tiled dynamic layer plugin for esri-leaflet, for displaying the DynamicMapLayer in tiled mode.

Here I have created both non-tiled and tiled DynamicMapLayer version for comparison using plain esri-leaflet and esri-leaflet with plugin.

Leaflet WMS layer custom projection on fly

Be The First To Comment
For most of the WMS mapping applications the Google Web Mercator (GWM) projection is sufficient. The GWM is default standard for web mapping and widley accepted by Bing, Google, OSM, OpenLayers(default), and Leaflets(default). However some mapping application required custom projection other than Google Mercator projection to display data. Then, how to project/re-project the data other than wms's default projection, GWM.

The following snippet shows the WMS layer custom projection in LEAFLET for  Albers equal area and UTM zone 13.

Step 1.

First of all include -
         proj4leaflet.js  in following order.    

     <link rel="stylesheet" href="" />  
     <script src=""></script>  
     <script src="//"></script>  
     <script src=""></script>  

Step 2: Create new Proj4Leaflet CRS

Find your desired custom projection type in and punch the the projection variable in the following code snippet.

Tips to share a leaflet map with multiple ROIs

Be The First To Comment
Do you have a Leaflet map? Yes. Can you panned and and zoomed to a particular event or ROI in the map? Yes. Then, how can you share that map zoomed or centered with ROI/events to your webpage or email as a link? One of the answers may be set the zoom level and set view near the ROI.  Alright, what will you do if you have a map with multiple ROI/events? Do you make multiple maps with multiple zoom level and view? You can, but probably not a good idea to do that. 

The solution comes here, leaflet-hash.js, solves your needs, it is a JavaScript library written by Michael Lawrence Evans, which appends the URL hashes to web pages automatically and the hash changes with Leaflet map on drag or zoom. The hash consists of map zoom level and latitude/longitude of the center of map viewport, everything you need to share the map with focused ROI as link in following simple steps:

How to display the MesoWest weather stations in Leaflet.js?

1 Comment
Snippet to display MesoWest weather stations in Leaflet.
 //Hold markers group  
 var mesoMarkersGroup=new L.LayerGroup();   
 //Get weather information from Mesowest for the state VA  
      function (data)   
      {  //Loop through all the weather stations  
        for(var i=0;i<data.STATION.length;i++)  
                 var stn = data.STATION[i];  
                 var dat = stn.OBSERVATIONS;  
                 var stnInfo =stn.NAME.toUpperCase();  
                 var elev=parseInt(stn.ELEVATION);            
                 stnInfo = "<b>Air Temp:&nbsp;</b>"+Math.round(dat.air_temp[1])+"&deg;F"+ "</br><b>Wind Speed:&nbsp;</b>"+Math.round(dat.wind_speed[1]* 1.150)+"MPH"+"</br>  
                 +<b>Wind Direction:&nbsp;</b>"+getCardinalDirection(Math.round(dat.wind_direction[1]))+"</br><b>Relative Humidity:&nbsp;</b>"+dat.relative_humidity[1]+"%"+"</br>  
                 //Add stations into Leaflet markers group  
                alert("Error! "+ e);  
      alert("Could not access the MesoWest!");  
 //Add markers group to the Map
