Open Layers Heatmaps

Open Layers Heatmaps

"Making Open Street Maps even hotter!"

Open Layers OSM Heatmap
A Great Mashup to show 'HeatMaps' using Open Layers and Open Street Map Features (OSM).
Select a number of OSM Features and create dynamic heatmaps from them.
Note: this is the 'inverted' heatmap view.

If you want to create your own HeatMaps the source code is available via OLHeatmap.

What is OLHeatmap ?

OpenLayers Heatmap is a group of hacks ( talented programmers) to render heat maps over OpenLayers. At this moment is very ugly and dirty but I have some ideas in mind to make this a more presentable project....

Why that name ?

OLHeatmap stands for OpenLayers Heatmap

I'd like to use olheatmap without internet connection.
I had setup a local osm server with postgis , mapnik, etc..
What is the best way to get features without xapi for the heatmap display?
