MapStore Release 2019.02.01 https://www.geo-solutions.it/blog/mapstore-release-2019_02_01/ https://www.geo-solutions.it/blog/mapstore-release-2019_02_01/#comments Mon, 21 Oct 2019 14:09:16 +0000 https://www.geo-solutions.it/?p=4673 header_ms_21-300x243

Dear Reader,

We are pleased to announce the release 2019.02.01 of MapStore, our flagship Open Source WebGIS product. The full list of changes for this release can be found here, but the most interesting additions are the following:

  • Improvements to the layer filtering capabilities: improved the autocomplete functionality for attribute fields according to other filters applied
  • Print tool: filters defined on layers are now applied to the final print too
  • Layers list query parameter: now you can add layers to the map defining them in a new URL query paremeter, look at the documentation here
  • Improved documentation: Attribute Table and Theme customization sections have been enriched
  • Catalog tool: improved with autosearch
  • Hardening: many bug fixes and performance improvements for both desktop and mobile
Within this minor release we have mainly focused our effort on the hardening by providing bug fixes on various components and functionalities: you can find the complete list on github here. We would like to take this opportunity to whet your curiosity giving some news on the ongoing works, several interesting functionalities are under construction!

GeoStory

Yes, it's true. In the first quarter of the next year you will be able to use MapStore to do geospatial storytelling: we named the new tool GeoStory. Using a Cascade layout there will be possible to add various kind of sections like Titles/Covers, Paragraphs and Media contents (images, videos and also maps!) with the possibility to also organize them with an Immersive layout to make your story fascinating! Below a little taste. [caption id="attachment_4687" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]Editor of GeoStory Editor of GeoStory[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_4688" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]View of an immersive section View of an immersive section[/caption]  

Application Contexts and Viewer Composer

An additional interesting feature will make MapStore even more powerful than now. The new year will bring the Application Context tool for MapStore that will allow administrators to define multiple viewer contexts in a three steps wizard with the possibility to:
  • Define a custom name that will identify the viewer's context path inside the MapStore URL
  [caption id="attachment_4704" align="aligncenter" width="559"]General settings - the context name General settings - the context name[/caption]  
  • Define and configure which plugins need to be active inside the viewer
  [caption id="attachment_4696" align="aligncenter" width="1018"]Select the viewer plugins Select the viewer plugins[/caption]  
  • Configure the viewer map in terms of: default map scale/center, map CRS, layers and groups of layers in TOC, backgrounds (with the new admin UI that will be available in next major release!)
[caption id="attachment_4698" align="aligncenter" width="775"]Configure the map Configure the map[/caption]  

Further ongoing and future work

For the next releases we have plans to work on the following (in sparse order)

  • Further improvements to charts and dashboards (we have in plan to add some interesting capabilities like the possibility to define quick filters in dashboard, stay tuned!)
  • Further improvements to the TOC drag&drop capabilities and settings
  • Support for multiple map projections (expected in next major release 2019.03.00 of MapStore)
  • Vector Tiles and MapBox Style support

Stay tuned for additional news on the next features!
