configurable tile server

Topic: configurable tile server

Hi dear Gurtam Developer Team

we would like to have in CMS a possibility to set our own leaflet compatible mapserver (tile server)...
There are comming more and more map server providers and as all use nearly the same format for tile servers it would be cool to be able to set own server flexible....

If you need more detailed specs how to please let me know, than i will send some more details.

configurable tile server

Re: configurable tile server

Currently Wialon supports XYZ tile layers with urls in format like:

https://{r.1-4}.tile.example.com/path/{z}/{x}/{y}.png?answer=42

But this functionality is per-site and you need to contact support.

Add custom map for whole service from CMS is not complicated thing, but there are few questions:

We are assuming, that only top user can edit such settings (add/edit/remove own tile layers). Then, how to setup accounts, for which this maps must be available? It is preferred to select for each layer list of accounts, or use existing Service settings? Or both?

Are these layers must be configurable in user settings? Per-layer or as "all custom layers"? Or you want to divide layers to groups?

Hi Rual,

thanks for quick answer.
Going to check that with some other partners what would be the most flexible.

I would put the "layers" into Service as Services. So i can enable or disable "Map Layers" in the Service for one Account (i like the Service Tab in CMS).

not tooo complicated.
Real live shows that Endcustomer normaly is not configuring such things by them self.
--> Enable in Account Settings in CMS and it will be automaticaly availabe (and marked like Open Street Maps in user config)
(but you dont need to show it there)

What do you think?

Re: configurable tile server

Hi Rual

after talking with our map specialist (he he he, my friend Joe) he said, that it would be super cool to be able to add Map Server URL directly in CMS.
And if possible one for Satview and one for Mapview (so 2 :-))

Any chance for it? If you need a Mapserver URL let me know.
