Mashups mit OpenStreetMap, Virtual Earth and Google Maps

today I was asked again for external (WMS) maps, which may be used as FOI or Basemaps in Oracle Maps/Mapviewer.
Some time ago Friedhold Matz did some extraordinary research work and "hacks" on that.
Feel free to visit his BLOG on the mashups.
It is concerning mashups with

- Virtual Earth
- Google Maps Street View
Thank you Friedhold again !

Good Luck !

Oracle Maps uses "Openstreetmap" as WMS

A tutorial (in German) can be found on the German APEX Community site.

This really seem to be something for "none GIS people" as my colleague Carsten said.

A great THANK YOU to Carsten again - this is not my work !! - but my BLOG on this exciting Oracle Maps topic.

Stay tuned! AS Mapviewer 11g will bring some more functionality (heatmap, microscope) !
