We have included our first use of “Map Integration”. The Map integration utilises the MapQuest “Mapping Api” (see www.mapquest.com).
Mapping and Geocoding information have been added to Locations. So we now have a “Map” button in the “Location Edit” popup.
When you click this button, the Popup opens the Mapping feature. With this feature, you can request the platform to resolve the Geocode (Latitude and Longitude) from the address information for the location.
When you hit the Lookup button, if the address can resolve, it populates the Latitude and Longitude values, and then shows a Map of that location.
If it can’t resolve, you have the option of manually updating the Latitude and Longitude information.
Now on the Device Details page, if a device is in a location that has Geocode information, we show a map of its location.
We are also thinking of other ideas to use the Goecode information for things like Weather information at that location, etc.
