As I have now left Japan, I thought I would close off my time there with a blog combining the two topics that were inspired by my stay in Japan. Those two topics were QRcodes and GIS(maps) with a focus on SAP.
A QR code in my passport from Japan customs, led me to include the Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript in SAP. (BWIPP). The BWIPP can be included in SAP device types and I have made a number of these available for download. (follow the link to see the downloads).
Being lost in Japan made me fascinated with mapping and GIS (geographic information systems). I tried to include some of these elements in SAP. e.g. previous posts squeezing the world into SAP and hopefully I will post a link to an upcoming blog on SCN. I have a SCN blog still awaiting approval in regards to maps and SAP.
The combination: A map of SAP BWIPP device types downloads
The image below is generated by my geoserver in the cloud of only the countries that have clicked on my bit.ly BWIPP device type links. The stats are based on bit.ly information and I am maybe missing some countries from the list as bit.ly site does have an "other" section. An example of the bit.ly stats can be found here for QRcode downloads https://bitly.com/zbwippqr+ . So far 34 countries have accessed all the device types with over 250 clicks on them.
Here is the same map without any filters showing all countries in the world but the countries that have clicked on the BWIPP device types highlighted.
