Update v0.80 (to v0.80.3) :
How it works ?
- New icons
- Added POI properties storage / restore system (Disabled by default) - Since June 18th
- Bugfix with new WME version
To activate this option, simply go to the options of the script (last icon) and tick "Enable copying / restoring POIs".
A new icon will appear. Here will be visible all POIs stored.
By clicking on one of them, the map is positioned on it and the POI is then selected.
To memorize a POI, just select it, then click on the blue icon which will appear at the top right of the POI properties.
To paste stored properties, it is the same approach, once the POI selected, just click on the icon at the top right of the POI card. This time, it will be orange.
The place will automatically disappear from the list.The stored properties :
- Alt name
- Brand (for service stations)
- Street number
- Phone number
- Geometry of POI-Zone and position of POI-Point
If you have enabled sync with the server, stored POIs will also be stored there.But why, by the way ?
We are more and more asked to intervene on large scale events. Last year in France : The Ryder Cup, this year: La Ferté Alais air show, the Formula 1 Grand Prix and certainly more to come.
During these interventions, some POI change role during the event : Parking can change names, a sports field can become a parking lot, etc ...
This new function of the script thus makes it possible to store the properties this these places before modifications, and then to restore them once the event finished.
