Modest Map Viewer


Mapping Module

The ModestMap Viewer is a module that uses the ModestMaps API to create an interactive mapping window. Multiple touch object windows can independently display maps with different sizes and orientations. Each map can be centered on different coordinates and use different map types and views. Multiple touch object maps can be displayed on stage and each touch object can be manipulated using the TAP, DRAG, SCALE and ROTATE multitouch gestures. All multitouch gestures can be configured using the module GML settings.

The orientation, coordinates, map type and customizable map markers can be specified using the module’s external CML file. The viewing window, menu and buttons can be added or removed dynamically using the CML file. The CML file also allows for inclusion of a dynamic info panel which can contain metadata related to the map and/or its markers.┬áIn addition every object displayed in the component window can be formatted and styled using the CSS file.

For a description of this CML tag refer to the CML Wiki reference:
