Hey Guys,

IFS team is deploying a new client tile builder dealing with bodies of water. This is just a heads up about what’s to come. Once completed (in about a month) we’d like to test it and get your feedback.

What will change?
-This new version is the first one in ROW that handles shorelines in the client.
-Shoreline borders and bodies of water will now show more accurately (in the past, the map only showed a body of water if the community had added it as a “Water Venue”).

How long will this process take?
About a month. Each tile build will improve a subset of areas.

What about the regular tile build?
The regular tile builder will continue daily, as usual.

At the end of this process (in a month):
-You can test it by removing water venues from an area and check that the water area still shows.
-If there are areas that don’t update (because no segments are present), we’ll run an automatic build to handle it.

Please keep us updated if you notice:

Bad shoreline borders
Sinking cities/countries/islands
Land instead of water
Anything that looks/feels weird

Thanks!
Shira

A user reported the Spit, NSW being underwater. Global warming appears to have been accelerated! The Livemap didn't look like this last time I looked at the Sydney waterfront -- which I think was less than a week ago after this bug issue was brought to my attention!

North Sydney

Sydney Harbour (CBD & inner city suburbs). Note the CBD, Watsons Bay and Rose Bay in particular. Everything further west looks ok for me.

The Entrance

Nelson Bay, NSW

I guess that's probably enough examples for now :P

Live map is stuffing up for me at the moment. I'll post more soon.

Coastlines in the Brisbane Water region of the NSW Central Coast are a bit all over the place too.

A king tide seems to have enveloped Sydney airport and the majority of Botany Bay too!
