Chimère is a cartographic mashup using OpenStreetMap as a default map layer. This software aims to create online collaborative and thematic maps.

Add on the map are open to everybody with no authentification but are moderated by a team in charge of the map.

  • Display on the map of POIs (with markers) and routes (with colored polylines).
  • Thematic choices of items to display (POIs and routes).
  • Filter themes in regard to currently available items.
  • Display of the detail of a POI (name, description, pictures, multimedia files).
  • Add of a cartographic item (POI, route) on the map by an user without authentication (the item is only available after moderation).
  • Admin interface for moderation and configuration.
  • Cut a Chimère by "areas". Each "area" can have specific themes, a new default center, welcome message, bounding box, allow of restriction to a bounding box, activation of dynamic themes, available themes, themes checked by default.
