CHANGELOG v6.0 (3/4/2015
1) info layer overlay in streetview window
2) info layer overlay in bing window
3) new gui toolbar
4) location tracking improvement
5) resize issue opening view fixed
The major plugin improvement in this release is the support to markers overlay (or so called pushpins in Bing maps). Furthermore the gui has been revised with a button bar to receive plugin actions including the new infoLayer feature.
The plugin allows to select a point layer to display as marker overlay in the Google streetview and Bing bird’s Eye views. The markers can be customized with layer attributes values. Clicking the button on the right of the new buttonbar appears the infolayer dialog:
In the first field must be specified an info layer from loaded point Layers and a distance buffer from the point of view to consider the related overlay markers. It is recommended to set this parameter carefully to avoid slowdowns and plugin crashes.
The other fields (info, Icon path and Html infobox) are optional but useful for for information purposes and can be filled with the help of Expression builder.
The markers icon path, if specified, overrides the default marker styles. Icons can be easily categorized using conditions in Expression Builder.
PS. A little “easter egg”. Taking a snapshot the plugin copies in the clipboard the path to the google panorama image
