Mapping works as a standalone application and follows the OpenBroadcaster module framework to allow integration into the observer platform.
The National Alert Aggregation & Dissemination (NAAD) GeoRSS feed provides realtime Active Public Safety Messages (CAP-CP) alerts issued by Authorized Government Agencies for Canada. The feed may be found at http://rss.naad-adna.pelmorex.com/.
Conversion of the GeoRSS feed into geoJSON makes use of Andrew Harvey’s excellent prototype
The National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provides a WMS map service shows where a warning of hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, imminent or likely.
Clone git repo for Mapping module into the webroot/modules/device_map directory:
git clone https://github.com/openbroadcaster/mapping.git device_map
You may need to change ownership of all files to be readable by the web-user:
chown web-user:web-user device_map/ -R
Install required PERL modules (as root)
perl -MCPAN -e shell 'install XML::Simple XML::Twig JSON'
Change to includes drectory
Run shell script to seed alerts file
./convert_emerg_feed.sh ``` Edit main js/layout.js at line 188: following 'layout.set_main_size();' "ModuleDevicemap.init_map();"
Add a CRON job to run conversion script. For example, to run every 15 minutes:
*/15 * * * * cd /var/www/html/OpenBC/modules/device_map/includes && ./convert_emerg_feed.pl
Install the module from the admin/module menu in server to create a menu item.
