Load scaled tiles if zoom level is high RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have the problem, that in the aerial mode the tiles in bing maps are only loaded, if the tiles are avaible in this zoom level. Otherwise, if the zoom level is too high, Bing Maps don't show the map (it shows only a crossed out camera). Is it possible to set a property to disable the crossed out camera and to show the map in this resolution even if it's a scaled up tile?

    best regards

    Thrake

  • Sounds like you are using Bing Maps V6.3. If you want the scaling of the tiles then you will need to use the Bing Maps V7 or Silverlight controls.

  • You can restrict the zoom level that users are allowed to go to (by checking the map zoom level on the on mapviewchange event handler and correcting if necessary), but you can't change the behaviour of the control to show, say, a level 17 image tile that has been scaled up at level 18.

  • hmm.... not really good.

    Some locations on the map has an higher resolution, some maps don't. On maps.bing.com, it is possible to zoom as much in as i want and if the image hasn't in the resolution, it is scaled up. That is the thing, i also need.

  • Can you give an example of a location that demonstrates the behaviour you're describing on maps.bing.com?

    Search for "Buchenhain, Germany". That's near Munich. There you see very well, that one side of the map is in a higher resolution.

    But I really use Bing Maps V6.3. I will now try to change to Bing Maps V7. Thanks...
