Web Mercator tile service Development
We are currently developing a version of the Vicmap API for the Web Mercator projection environment. This will allow clients who have existing mapping applications utilising the Google Web Mercator projection to seamlessly integrate Vicmap API or the tile service alone.
PTV have funded a VicGIS mobile proof of concept project. Trans Maps Mobile is built on the API tile cache and OpenLayers architecture utilising the web browsing environment.
This in turn enables users to access this application from different mobile platforms such as iOS, Android and others. The mobile application has extensive data source library and functionality.
A new sub domain name api.maps.vic.gov.au has been created to accommodate and future development and address the former issues of linking to an IP address.
