Concerned maps

  • PTV Europe City Map Premium 2016.1T (Update 4)
  • PTV Europe City Map Premium 2016.1H (Update 4)
  • PTV Europe City Map Premium 2015.2T (Update 8)
  • PTV Europe City Map Premium 2015.2H (Update 11)
  • PTV Europe City Map Premium 2015.1H (Update 14)

Due to a new toll calculation method for the new Belgium toll, calculations for Belgium with a planning date after 01.04.2016 with a current PTV xServer please consider the following notes:

  • The current PTV xServer support a basic calculation of exact toll in Belgium. That means tollTotals include the sum of all three Belgium toll regions: Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels.
  • With the parameter allEuro set, you get the results in Euro. Otherwise you will get the virtual country currency ‘XXX’ for Belgium toll sections which translates to 1/10000 Euro.
  • With the parameter detailedTollCosts activated, you get the result for every toll section. This result list of toll sections in Belgium may get very long.
    (allEuro and detailedTollCosts can be set in the countryInfoOptions.)
  • The new Belgium toll calculation will influence the performance.

The PTV xServer 1.22 release, which is planned for early March 2016, will fully support the Belgium toll. The country currency will be Euro (as expected) and the toll regions will be distinguishable by providerID. That means the result list with detailedTollCosts activated will contain concarnated toll sections by provider ID.

 

The download is available on the customer area of the PTV Developer Zone now. For the PTV Mapserver please use the current version of the PTV Toll Update Tool. This toll update is already released on LDS for PTV xServer and Mapserver. The Release for PTV xServer internet will follow on 02.03.2016.

Map Update on LDS Server for PTV Content Update Service

featurelayerThe release of the PTV Europe City Map Premium 2016.1T on the LDS will replace the PTV Europe City Map Premium 2015.1T for creating the Incident Feature Layer. This map update will be performed on  Monday, 8th of February 2016 not on the 5th like announced before. Then the LDSupdater will supply the Feature Layer into the products automatically but with the update there is something to take care of:

The new Feature Layer that are created by the PTV Europe City Map Premium 2016.1T will get a new Layer ID. The old Feature Layer, created by the PTV Europe City Map Premium 2015.1T, will be discontinued.

PTV Content Update Service earlier than 1.20.1.1 will still copy this old Feature Layer. To avoid the copying and to delete the old Feature Layer, the PTV Content Updates Service database and the dynamic folder (standard name: contentFolder) has to be deleted. This will be done automatically at every restart with the new PTV Content Update Service 1.20.1.1 or higher. For all the older Content Update Service versions, this has to be done manually.

The new PTV Content Update Service can be downloaded from the customer area of the PTV Developer Zone (login required).                                                                                     For any further information or support please contact the Support Team.
