Cloud Maps for Smallworld

Atlas Cloud Maps adds popular land-base maps to Smallworld GIS.

Installation

Load the Cliffhanger product into your Smallworld session:

_block
  smallworld_product.add_product("path_to_cliffhanger_cloudmaps_product_folder")
  smallworld_product.load_module("atlas_cloudmaps")
  # Start and Stop the plugin:
  _global cm << atlas_cloudmaps.new()
  cm.start()
_endblock

To remove the layers from Object Control run:

cm.stop()

Note: To turn the new map layers visible, they need to be turned on in the ACE. Since we are not going to fiddle in your ACE database, you need do that yourself:

cm.open_ace()
cm.restart()

It should look something like this:

Prerequisites

  • Smallworld version 4 or 5 with SOMS module
