WebGIS and Gurtam Map

Topic: WebGIS and Gurtam Map

Hi GT

It would be great if we have possibility to use both WebGIS and Gurtam map together. As Gurtam map addresses are improved now some customers are happy to use it, in same time they have some map sources that they want to use only as tiles and for some regions only (like their construction sites). Please check possibility of adding this feature to WL.

Hamed, if I understood you correctly, you want to have an ability to upload custom maps, e.g. construction sites, fields that can be specific for a particular business. Is this right?
If yes, then such an ability is already presented in Wialon. Such custom maps can be added to Gurtam Maps (there is no necessity to do it via WebGIS). For more information please contact maps@gurtam.com.

Re: WebGIS and Gurtam Map

mars, that's great. I will discuss with the customer about this option. BTW, if they refuse to share these data with Gurtam, then is it possible to have both Gurtam Map and WebGIS on a WL server?

Re: WebGIS and Gurtam Map

hhamedk no, it is not possible - only one map source can work. But our maps specialists may add needed parts of maps in Gurtam Maps to be seen only for you, not for rest clients, if you don't want to share them.

WebGIS and Gurtam Map

Re: WebGIS and Gurtam Map

Hi Hamed,
hhamedk

as my colleague mentioned in the post above currently there are no tools that would allow having both Gurtam Maps and WebGIS on one WL server. there is a small enhancement that should be made for this to work out.

the idea is the following: you store the necessary custom maps on one WL server and then request the custom maps tiles from from another WL server, where GM and WebGIS will work together. at the moment it is not possible to request the tiles from another WL server as it requires being authorized on the WL server (as the session is checked) where the maps are stored.

we plan to implement some changes to improve this behaviour.

Re: WebGIS and Gurtam Map

mars, that's great. But let me know what is the issue in technical side that prevent us to have both GM and WebGIS activated on same WL server.

we will make some adjustments so that there is a workaround for not being authorized on that WL server where WebGIS maps are stored and still being able to make requests for the tiles from it.
