Re: Proof of Concept script: UR layer in Live Map

A few improvements for the 0.2 proof of concept release

* should now work on the NA server as well as the world one
* prompts users to log-in if they aren't already
* now shows map problems as green dots

Note - the script will only be activated if you are using the secure live map server - if you do not see the checkbox at the bottom of the live map window, you're probably on the non-secure server...

V0.3 now shows the users managed and editable areas - since the UR and problem data is only returned within these areas, displaying them on the livemap makes it clearer whether or not an area is genuinely devoid of problems or simply appears so because you don't have editing rights there...

Re: Proof of Concept script: UR layer in Live Map v0.4

Postby Twister-UK » Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:57 pm

Thanks for the bug report, 0.4 should now have solved that problem... In fixing that error, I've also resolved the problem where the editable area would appear and disappear if you were panning across certain parts of the map at certain zoom levels.

Linking the UR/problem markers to WME is my long-term intention for this script, but I don't want to rush into this until I'm happy that the foundations of the code are OK, hence all of these proof of concept versions.

Re: Proof of Concept script: Live Map UR Layer v0.5 (2012112

Postby Twister-UK » Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:18 pm

With the international editor out of action, I decided to dust off the LMUR source and do some long overdue updates...

0.5 fixes a data retrieval glitch which exhibited itself in the northern reaches of the UK (and would most likely also appear in other parts of the world too), it moves the script info/activation checkbox up to the top of the livemap view, and, saving the best till last, it now features overview popups for the UR and problem markers.

Note that, unlike the popups in my UROverview script, these ones are (for the moment at least) just for information - there's no links to open WME at the UR/problem location etc.

No, the script has been working OK for me all throughout the shutdown. If the red/green markers have been placed on the livemap, then the script has all the information it needs to generate the popups, so there must be some other reason why they're not appearing. Do you see any errors in the javascript console?

foxitrot wrote:Never mind. The script uses a vertical yellow rectangle, sized approx. 70 x 100 km, as a looking glass for the markers. Is there any specific reason to make it vertical (if not already a square), like an API constraint? A horizontal orientation would suit more...


When requesting the UR/problem data from the Waze server, the largest area you can ask for in a single request is 1 degree * 1 degree, and so this is what the script currently requests each time you move/zoom the map. The reason this 1*1 area appears to be rectangular rather than square is due to the projection method used to generate the live map - the further north or south you move from the equator, the more the projection vertically stretches the map. If you view the livemap near the equator, you should see the script bounding box appears to be a square, and as you then pan north or south, you'll see it slowly elongating into the portrait-oriented rectangle more familiar to users in non-equatorial regions...

One of the things I'll be looking into for future versions of the script is a more intelligent data request process, so that the script doesn't ask for more data than necessary if you're zoomed right into the map, and also so that it can request multiple blocks of data to cover more of the map when you're zoomed further out.


foxitrot wrote:The Extended Tools for Papyrus and one more Timbones' script contain (or contained) code for maximizing the usable area by (at least) hiding the upper black Waze banner and navigation bar. Could you try to bind such change (hide the "body_bg.png", "content_wrapper"/"navigation" and "content_wrapper"/"navigation_bottom_wrapper" in order to vertically enlarge the LiveMap's "map_container" area) on the "Show URs/map checkbox problems" state?


Possibly...

Re: Proof of Concept script: Live Map UR Layer v0.6 (2012112

Postby Twister-UK » Sun Nov 25, 2012 11:30 pm

0.6 resolves what I suspect was a long-standing problem which would incorrecly trigger the "unable to access..." handler if the server returned partial data for any other users in addition to the data expected for the logged-in user.

Which browser? I've got an update for LMUR in the pipeline, so if there is a problem I'll look to fix it as part of that release.

Re: [Script] Live Map UR Layer v0.7 (20121218)

Postby Twister-UK » Tue Dec 18, 2012 10:44 pm

0.7 is now available...

Bug fixes:
Now allows use of the Livemap search/directions functionality (thanks to Kuhlkatz for reporting this one)
Allows UR/problem popups to be displayed if the livemap window has been scrolled

New features:

Loads UR/problem data for a wider area initially (3 degrees x 3 degrees as opposed to the 1 degree x 1 degree area used in prior versions), caching this data and adding to the cache as the map is panned/zoomed. The data is still retrieved in 1x1 degree blocks (limited by the Waze server), and each of these cached 1x1 degree areas is shown on the map with a pale yellow highlight. The cached data persists for the duration of the browser session, so to refresh it simply reload the page.

foxitrot wrote:The AM (manageable?) and EA (updatable?) areas' highlights are gone. Intentionally I suppose. If it was not a big code/data overhead, it was a very nice feature of the v0.6.


Yes, it's an intentional side-effect of caching multiple 1x1 degree blocks of data in order to expand the UR/problem markers across the whole map - I'd also have to cache the multiple fragments of editable area data and stitch them together for display, and for editors with large areas that could easily mean the script ends up caching a lot of data for each session...

I might look into re-instating the area higlighting in some way, but for this release I felt it was more important to implement the wider UR/problem marker coverage since that's been requested several times. I also needed to get the two bugfixes rolled out as well, so I didn't want to hold back this release any longer than necessary.

Re: [Script] Live Map UR Layer v0.8 (20121219)

Postby Twister-UK » Wed Dec 19, 2012 10:20 pm

Wasn't planning another release so soon, but with Turn Problems now making their way out of beta I decided a quick update to support those was in order - 0.8 now marks them with a green dot.

0.8 has also given me the chance to fix a long-standing bug - if the livemap was panned too quickly, the UR/problem markers could end up being drawn slightly out of alignment with the underlying map - which had become more obvious recently, either as a result of other changes in LMUR or changes to the Livemap code itself.
