PTV xServer .NET SDK 1.6 is now available for API Version 1 and 2

Easily add PTV xServer functionality to your .NET applications with our new .NET SDK release. The new.NET SDK 1.6 is now compatible with PTV xServer API version 1 and 2, unfortunately the DemoCenter is still only available for API version 1.

Changes and Optimizations

  • Added support for integration of XMap2 Layers including Feature Layers
  • Added support for integration of Web Map Tile Services (WMTS)
  • Optimized tile caching and pruning
  • The InifiniteZoom property (to avoid jitter at deep zoom levels) is now set to true by default. This setting should be compatible with the previous setting. If you experience problems with your custom layer implementation, you can set it back to false. However, this property will be removed in future releases.
  • The MemoryPressureMode flag is ignored and marked as obsolete.
  • The protocol for the provider returning tooltip information has changed. Now the provider now must implement IUntiledProviderWithMapObjects:GetImageStreamAndMapObjects().

Bug fixes

  • Some minor bug fixes
  • Fixed rendering error if the Container-Control sets UseLayoutRounding

Toll Update Belgium

Belgium

  • TollCalculationThis scenario includes the toll charges from January 2019, for trucks from a maximum authorised mass over 3.5 t in the three Belgian regions: Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels. Toll roads include motorways, additional main roads and the local road network in Brussels. Toll charges are calculated based on kilometre factors and depend on the road type and further depend on the emission class and total weight of the vehicle. This scenario replaces the previous ‘Belgium July 2018’ scenario.

May we present? Our new Customer Area!

More informative, modern and of course more “responsive”. The relaunch took a little longer – but how do you say it again: “What lasts a long time will finally be good”.

As a IT company, we are of course aware of the importance of our own website, which reflects our expertise and know-how. In the dilemma between our own (high) demands, lots of creative ideas and lack of time, we made it!

The PTV xServer website and now the Customer Area is finally relaunched.

It is designed in a completely new design and a new clean structure. Besides the changes in optics and technology, we have also prepared the familiar content for you. You have still the possibility to download our PTV xServer API Version 1 and API Version 2 and their Add ons directly.

But we got rid of the data part which has it´s on delivery channels. Like Feature Layer data, which is now delivered via download link from our contract services and delivery department directly. Also the Toll Updates which can be automatically downloaded installed for your PTV xServer via PTV Content Update Service.

And the best at last:
Your old login credentials are still valid and can be used to login to the new Customer Area.
