  Description     : JavaScript library for displaying map data in web browsers

OpenLayers is a pure JavaScript library for displaying map data in
most modern web browsers, with no server-side dependencies.

OpenLayers implements a JavaScript API for building rich web-based
geographic applications, similar to the Google Maps and MSN Virtual
Earth APIs.

This package contains OpenLayers 3 (OL3), a fundamental redesign of the
OpenLayers web mapping library. Version 2 is widely used, but dates from
the early days of Javascript development, and is increasingly showing its
age. OL3 has been rewritten from the ground up to use modern design patterns.

The openlayers3 package will be maintained within the Debian GIS team.

Many of the OpenLayers 3 Node.js dependencies that are not yet packaged in
Debian are probably best maintained by the Debian JavaScript
