In Geovonic Connect, data sources provide connectivity to third-party business systems. The Google Maps data source allows you to fetch URLs for Google Maps and Google Street View, allowing a widget user to launch the application for the selected map feature.
If the user selects a point feature, the URLs will point directly to the feature’s location. For polygon or polyline features, the generated URL will point to the centroid of the feature.
Data Source Configuration
There is no Data Source configuration for Google Maps.
Layer Link Configuration
The Google Maps layer link configuration has several fields which determine the how the maps should be launched.
- Key Attribute – A unique value attribute on the map features (e.g. OBJECTID).
- Basemap – The basemap to be used for the Google Map application.
One of roadmap, satellite or terrain.
- Zoom – The zoom level to user on the map view.
From level 15 (locality) to level 21 (building).
- StreetView Field of View – The desired field of view in degrees.
The Google Maps data source will return two URLs: Map and StreetView. Use the widget properties when configuring the web application to choose whether one or both of these should be displayed to the user.
