Update to Repository 66 service

Stuart Lewis, Repository mashup map software update, Stuart Lewis’ Blog, August 12, 2008. (Thanks to Charles Bailey.)

The Repository Mashup Map has just undergone a bit of a software upgrade. Here are some details:

  • ... The code has now been tidied up and rationalised, which will hopefully make it faster and more efficient ...
  • Extra filter: You can now filter on the country where the repository is located, as well as the software platform it runs on, and the date it was created.
  • Auto-zooming: When you select a filter (e.g. “Show me all DSpace repositories in the UK”) the map will automatically zoom to show just the area covered by the repositories (in this case, just the UK).
  • Auto-filtering: When you select a filter (e.g. “Show me repositories in Austria”) the maps update on their own, without you having to press the filter button.

To make my life easier, I also now have a development copy of the maps where I can test upgrades. The URL for this is ...
