Architectural review of Vicmap API
Vicmap API has now been operational for 5 years. Time has come to undertake an architectural review of Vicmap Application Programming Interface (API) environment. DELWP is exploring an open solution where users can easily choose a platform of their choice to interact with Vicmap tiles. Our aim is to be platform agnostic and focus our resources to providing high quality tiles and a more robust web service. OpenLayers 2 is gaining in years and version 3 has matured and should be utilised as one of the platform options to display the tiles.
Further information regarding the proposed future direction will be communicated to stakeholders in due time. The current OpenLayers 2 API will continue to be operational and supported in the foreseeable future and service our customers.
