Latitude/Longitude in reports

Topic: Latitude/Longitude in reports

Web-GIS is not rich on addresses for many regions of our country (Bangladesh). As a result, in different reports '-----' is appearing as 'location'. I know I can handle it through POIs & Geofences, but it is quite tough to cover all regions. Is it possible to get Latitude/Longitude in reports in case where neither Web-GIS address available, nor POI/Geofence defined?

Maruf, yes you need to provide vector map of your city/country to Wialon DC support team.

Re: Latitude/Longitude in reports

The problem is not with the map... map is fine. Problem is... many regions have not enough addresses, particularly remote areas out of city. As a result, in PDF reports, we get '-----' instead of location name. In online report, it is not a problem; as i can click on cells with 'empty' locations & it takes me to that location on map. But in PDF reports, there exists no way to identify such locations appearing as '-----'. For only such cases where no address is available, you can put latitude/longitude of the place instead of '-----'. Then one with PDF report can at least identify the location. My query is, if there exists any option to print latitude/longitude in PDF reports for only such cases.

If no option available currently, you can seriously consider adding such option; it will be useful for all.

Maruf, I mean the same: if you will provide us with vector map of your region with address info thwen you will have these addresses in reports. Or you can at least edit OpenStreetMaps map, after a while its map data is copied into Wialon.

Re: Latitude/Longitude in reports

I understand, if I provide vector map with addresses, you will make those available in Wialon... fine.

Actually my query/need is very simple... just like to know if it is possible to print Latitude/Longitude instead of '-----' in location field of PFD reports.

Maruf, now it is not possible, but we will think about this option in reports.

Latitude/Longitude in reports

Re: Latitude/Longitude in reports

Great! You have made Latitude/Longitude available in ‘Location’ column of reports.

Some little suggestions…

Now Lat/Long is printed as N 23° 58.2139' : E 90° 19.1810'. But if you put comma “,” instead of colon “:”, then we can paste it in http://maps.google.com/ to jump to that location. Otherwise we have to replace “:” with “,” for each. With “:” Google cannot understand the location.

Also you can consider printing in format N 23° 58' 12.83", E 90° 19' 10.86", its more readable.

Again, in PDF reports you can put it as Google Maps link like N 23° 58' 12.83", E 90° 19' 10.86"; so that we can just click to reach that location.
