Custom Venue maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to create and load custom venue maps?  It appears that venues are loaded by known ID or proximity from what I've read thus far.  I'd like to create and load a custom multi-floor venue map.  If the custom venue creation/loading is doable in turn I'd like to give directions from a point outside the venue to a location with in the venue.

    My suspicion is this isn't possible currently.

    Appreciate any assistance.

    Thanks.

  • Currently custom venue maps via the venue map API are not available. It is possible to create your own overlays of venues on the map using polygons and/or tile layers. This is basically all the venue map API does.

  • Richard,

    Appreciate the response.  I can see how the polygons and tiles could work.  I was hoping to leverage the existing format for storing and loading the information.  Any chance their is a tool out their that would help with creating an intermediate format or script for generating the commands needed?  I find the prospect of maintaining a hand generated script for a building with multiple floors and hundreds of rooms a daunting prospect.

    Thanks.
