Description

What is OpenLayers?

An opensource javascript library to load, display and render maps from multiple sources on web pages.

What is LocationIQ?

Free and Fast Geocoding Service

What is TileStache?

TileStache is a Python-based server application that can serve up map tiles based on rendered geographic data. You might be familiar with TileCache, the venerable open source WMS server from MetaCarta. TileStache is similar, but we hope simpler and better-suited to the needs of designers and cartographers.
