    Best strategy for a custom map

    bcd

      Today I'm adding a custom map to my database. This has surely been done before so I'm

      not trying to reimagine the obvious but ....

       

      I already have multiple records for objects with real world coordinates.

      I have a script to return the current Location of the user (ipad) ± 10m horizontally.

       

      The solution should perform two distinct tasks:

       

      1. report those objects that are within a given proximity.
      2. display a portion of a map that is
        • either centered on the current location or
        • which contains the current location

       

      Ideally I'll be able to pan/click/scroll through the map either by underlaying the full map

      and viewing only a portion of it or perhaps by tiling the map and inserting tiles & crops

      of tiles thusly:

      Does this all sound reasonable?

      Is there a way to control the how fmg will crop the rectangular tiles?

      Would the webviewer be more elegant & will it work offline?

       

      Thanks for reading & your advice
