[Script] WME GIS Buttons

Postby Philistine11 » Sat Jul 16, 2016 6:59 pm

I've created a script that makes it easier to open the correct GIS website for whatever location you are looking at in WME. It takes the coordinates of the center of the visible map, reverse geocodes the location to find the locality, and then provides buttons to open the various GIS of that locality if available. Displaying the locality is available anywhere in the US (not tested elsewhere).

The script and brief instructions, including how to get an API key, are available from Greasyfork: https://greasyfork.org/scripts/21228

This is my first script for WME so please feel free to provide feedback.

Thank you for that script, Philistine11. It's a lot easier than going to the local wiki or searching for them Google-style. Now if someone could devise a front end for all those GIS interfaces that make them work more-or-less the same . . .

Awesome! Now just need to get SC added...

Would you please add SC to the script? The sheet ID is 1uz6-l0WFL8fURxaqfbE6LHE2unRf9qjy-BadcX5ywtU

Have you tried something like ArcGIS Explorer Desktop? You can pull the data straight from the GIS server and organize it in folders, and you just check checkboxes to enable filters as you need them.

I'm not sure Waze wants us to use the copyrighted data but perhaps it would be OK. Also I work in about 30 or 40 counties. That single button sure is nice.
