Map Widget Settings

Hi,

I have tried entering Lat and Longitude settings into the geo position attributes for my assets. I am in the UK, but the map always defaults back to Rotterdam? Do I need to adjust any Environment settings in the container?

Thanks,

Hi,

this is because for demo there is only a small map of Rotterdam included. You would need to extract and install your own map data. It is quite simple, you just put a new map as ./deployment/map/mapdata.mbtiles. @Don knows everything how a custom map can be created.

Thanks @michal

I will look into it.

I read on the issues list that you were considering linking to a map provider - that would be a good move :slight_smile:

Hi @3more,

Please follow this wiki page on the use of maps.
Note that you can download a map (free for personal use) using the link mentioned on the wiki. If you want to have a smaller portion of that map, you can use the guide (last section) on extracting that from the downloaded map.

If you have any questions please let us know,

Don

Thanks Don,

I did as you suggested and it is working great now :slight_smile:
