Vicmap API has had a minor upgrade of OpenLayers to version 2.1.13 from 2.1.10 for VicGrid and 2.1.12 for Web Mercator. The upgrade was deployed successfully over the weekend and deals with bug fixes, such as zooming in via scroll mouse, progressive rendering and printing issues. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you need any further information.
Over the last few weeks Vicmap API (VicGrid) has been updated on a weekly cycle and offers most up to date authoritative information available from the Vicmap source data. The system is fully automated and replaces the outdated tiles with the changes overnight. This will give users further confidence in our service and information provided. The Web Mercator beta tile version will be updated later this month to align with Google's scales and resolution. Two new pages have been created to demonstrate the two tile streams that DEPI provides being api.maps.vic.gov.au/wm and api.maps.vic.gov.au/vicmapapi/ The new pages provide some basic OpenLayers tools and address search and the option to flick between the two offerings.
Tile maintenance is now at the regular monthly cycle. All map and hybrid tiles have been updated last Friday for both services being VicGrid and Web Mercator projection. They are current to Vicmap version dated 1st of October 2013. A regular monthly incremental update will generally be deployed by the end of the second week of any given month, data being current to the first day of any given month. From early 2014 updates will become more frequent and fully automated. Vicmap API will be maintained on a fortnightly basis keeping it within a couple of weeks of the latest Vicmap data. Imagery updates will occur as imagery becomes available, or upon request subject to IP considerations.
