Donate to Oskari Myplaceimport development

Image links to Oskari in Myplaceimport tool & customization of popup-info

Required funding: 5000€

10 % of the required funding is assigned to core development
5 % of the funding is directed to maintaining the new developed code

Tool description:

Oskari has a tool for importing your own datasets (Myplaceimport) and separate tool for adding individual points, lines, areas (MyPlaces)). These two tools differ in their functionalities at the moment a little bit.

This is how the pop-up info looks like in these two different tools at the moment (screen captures from

Popupinfo from user imported layers (Myplaceimport)

Popup info from individually added points (Myplaces)

Pop-up info for user imported layers is not automated and can not be customized at the moment. Currently all the information from the datasets are also shown.

When adding own datasets through Myplaceimport we want the users to be able to customise the pop-up info at least a little bit. If some of the attributes have images as links these could be shown in the popup-info like they are shown with the Myplace-tool popup.

This can be done by automated detection of URLs ending with image format (like .jpg and.png). Users should be able to choose if the image link is shown as image or not.

In this tool development the Myplaceimport datasets can be edited also in the attribute field level. Users can

  • delete unnecessary fields
  • choose if the image is shown as image in the pop-up info tool
  • create alias-names for the field names
  • change the order of the fields by dragging them

Why to develop this tool

The tool is considered to be good addition to current Myplaceimport tool and can be used by e.g. associations and NGOs that have the need for adding their own datasets to Oskari instances like Paikkatietoikkuna. The tool will become a core Oskari tool when developed and documented according to Oskari development procedures.

In the end normal users of Oskari instances with Myplaceimport activated, have possibility to affect how their dataset is shown through the pop-up info.
