The Mapfluence solution does provide this level of detail--high resolution imagery to see street-level detail. We can also render the existing basemap styles (or custom cartography) at higher zoom levels to meet your specific needs. Can you describe your specific requirements?
Thanks for the heads up on this, looks very interesting and useful. I do genuinely appreciate you sending me the link.
I’ll have a good read through. Part of me is thinking that I’ll need to host my own maps.
Here's an example of the Faroe Islands using the method above:
Faroe Islands, with GADM Admin Level 0, and custom OpenStreetMap data (with custom SLD), EPSG 4326/WGS84 being served as a background map (either online or offline) using PostGIS/Geoserver WMS
Ability to show street level detail:
You are most welcome.
HI Allan ,
I want to create map for KSA , I am using urban mapping for the street level data in first view, but unable to show.
I want to show street level data on city filter. can you guide me for openstreet map , how to use that????
Thanks Allan , let me try please..
Here's the problem: Urban Mapping's mapping solution, and the filled maps are in WGS84 EPSG:4326.
Natively, OpenStreetMap use Google Mercator EPSG:900913.
So, you either need a basemap with the datum you want, and then all the polygon, points and lines to match, or, you have to re-project your data to fit UrbanMapping's basemap and Tableau's choice of datum, WGS84. I suspect you want FK89...yes?
This has come up before - for French users, and UK users, because WGS84 makes these countries look "warped" - they may instead want to show data in the EU datum, and British National Grid.
Much worse is the issue of clipping over the Arctic Circle. If I want to project a flight path from say Germany to USA that goes over the North Pole, the default map will "clip" this.
Let me know your exact requirements, put the request into Craig Bloodworth or me over on the Tableau Mapping LinkedIn Group, and we will see what we can do for you - or you can have a go yourself.
Here's the files you will need
Here's how to do it: you just re-project the files to FK89 in Geoserver ; and for any files you want to analyse in Tableau, make sure your polygons/lines/points (for foreground analysis) are re-projected when you bring them in...
Wow Johan - you mean you would could have address level data - not just street level in Tableau? Now that would be cool!
There might be a little confusion over "Filled Map Mark type" and "Polygon Mark Type" here. I don't ever use Filled Maps - I only use polygon mark type, or just circle/line mark type - lines are just connected points (as are polygons).
Both Geoserver (what you will use to render the tiles) and QGIS should recognize FK89. Remember to convert all the SHP files to FK89
You have a choice: either
add the shapefile into Geoserver (this is a background layer)
or convert the shapefile for analysis in Tableau (this is a foreground layer) BUT you need to be using your Geoserver as WMS if you want the right projection.
If doing the later, you can use ShapetoTab, or ESRI with ET Wizards. If you get stuck, let me know, and I will do it for you.
Your first step is to get Geoserver up and running
