Improvement of Dutch Maps

VisionBI | Jurgen shared this idea 2 years ago
Idea Logged

The Dutch standard maps don't have a lot of detail, and the aspect of the Netherlands is wrong. If you compare this to the Netherlands, you see what I mean.

I talked to Glen last week, he told me to add a ticket to load new charts.

Hi Jurgen,

I hope all is well,

I will have this ticket converted to an Idea, we will then review this to see what can be done. Fingers crossed we can have some movement on this over the coming weeks. Before convert this I would love to get your feedback. I look forward to your reply.

Hi Mark,

It's fine to register it as an idea. But I hope one that can be converted in an idea that will be realized. Is this a general problem or only with the Dutch maps? We are working a lot with geo-analysis at the moment. In Google maps we mis things like heatmaps and spots. Would it be possible to add those to Google Maps? The maps of Google (or OpenStreetmaps) are fine to work with.

Hi Jurgen,

Thanks for getting back to me. I will strongly push this towards my Team Leader to see what can be actioned. I can see the need for this with how you have described and therefore would love to get this implemented for you. Let me go ahead and convert this to an idea and reach out to my Team Leader.

This idea is questioning if we can have a much better detailed dutch map (maps in general) as our current setup on this does not reflect a true detailed-likeness when comparing to Google Maps.

Hi Jurgen,

I hope all is well, I have since discussed this further with my team leader and we looked at the following areas:

  1. Street Level Data - As it stands this is not considered by YF in a GeoPack.
  2. Heat-maps and Spots - Within Google Maps, we have the option to draw 'geopolygons' or 'geopoints'
    If you have this data (available from GeoPack) you can have this displayed on normal Google Maps.

I can provide more information with regards to our maps available at YF.

Hello Mark,


My collegae Bram Nijenhuis is working on a geopack together with Ryan Carrie, but unfortunately it's not there yet. There are some problems creating the pack, we delivered all data to create the pack with all the details.


I'm not sure what you mean with displaying the heatmaps of the geopack on a Google map.

At the moment Google Maps is limited to geopoint of polygons, we have a database with multipolygons displaying province, city, neighbourhood, etc. But I don't understand how to plot a heatmap on a Google map, maybe you can be more specific on this.

Hi Jurgen,

I hope all is well,

I was answering each question raised, as you questioned options to use the below (x2) in YF;

  1. The maps of Google (or OpenStreetmaps) are fine to work with.
  2. In Google maps we miss things like heatmaps and spots. Would it be possible to add those to Google Maps?

I explained that within Google Maps, we only have the option to draw 'geopolygons' or 'geopoints'

As you are aware, we don't have the option to use heat-maps. I hope this has cleared this up.

Mark

I'm wondering if there are any future plans to 'update' the maps as mentioned in this ticket.

Google maps causes limitations, so we have to move to ESRI maps for enhanced reporting on maps.

Hello Mark,


I'm familiar with these options. As mentioned before the Google maps are limited in use, we want to use the YF maps. The problem is that the aspect ratio of the Dutch maps are wrong (as shown in the printscreens). If spoken to Glen about this, he thought it was possible to update the current maps with the right aspect ratio. That way the default map is more usable for us, and we don't feel ashamed :-) to use the current maps.


So the main question is, can the YF maps be updated to the right aspect ratio for the Netherlands?

Hi Jurgen,

Apologies for the delay in responding... I have discussed this with my team and we have come to the decision that this be submitted to our Dev team to see what options we have. From what we can see you require that the map be more defined with how it is scaled.

Looking at the Google Maps it appears to have a flat map effect whereas the YF Map appears to show a more rounded effect. We can track this with the JIRA ID of YFN-10430

With this have you considered WMS?

Let me know your opinions of this. I look forward to your reply.

Mark
