Refreshed Mapping Engine Announced
The core mapping engine used by many of Bluestar Software's products has been completely redeveloped. Development for the revised mapping engine has focused on delivering a range of benefits and enhancements including more features, enhanced mapping layers and providing a faster experience. This extension now allows our customers to benefit from a greater range of mapping styles and functionality, including data provided from the OpenStreetMap project, the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain and aerial photography (optionally with roads).
Specific improvements have been included to reduce the transfer times of data between the browser and the server, thus saving network bandwidth and allowing for a lighter footprint on the client. These improvements all combine to give the user a better, more enjoyable experience throughout.
