New release of MapStore with improved map embedding
we are pleased to announce a new release of MapStore 2, our flagship Open Source webgis product, which we have called 2017.03.00. The full list of changes for this release can be found here, but the latest most interesting additions are the following.
- Improved Embed view
- Full Screen option
- Elevation Slider
Improved Embed view
Table of Content is optional inside IFrame
The table of content on the left side is now hidden by default so your users can focus on your data and have more room to view it. If you still want to display the TOC, you can add the “forceDrawer=true” parameter in the URL. Here is the result:
Here a real map included.
Page with API
Full Screen Supoport
The map can now be expanded to full screen size.
This is very useful for small devices where the screen space is small.
Initial support for Elevation Dimension on WMS
MapStore now detects if a layer has an elevation dimension and displays a new tab in the layer properties window. From the new tab you can choose the elevation to display.
In the example you can see the values of the elevation/depth provided by the server in a chart. This widget guides the visualization by setting the values of the Elevation dimension for the layeryou are viewing.
In the next release we will focus on bug fixes as well as user interface improvements, including also a fully integrated 3D Viewer for maps based on Cesium.
