Map settings

Name Description
Bruk BAAT tilgangskontroll “Use BAAT authentication”: Relevant GUI will use BAAT authentication, for instance in order to use BAAT protected background maps.
Bruk Google maps “Use Google maps”: Deprecated, this choice will be removed in later versions.
Map projection Which coordinate system the current GUI will use to display maps and map layers.
Display projection Which coordinate system the current GUI will use for the mouse and click in map.
Search zoom level Map scale for when a user select a search result or zoom to a record from dataview. Map scale is defined by zoom levels where 1 is the smallest scale. Available number of levels depend on your basemap.
This setting applies to point datasets only. For lines and polygons the extent will be used.
Zoom levels* The number of zoom levels for the map.
Max resolution* Sets a maximum zoom resolution.
Max extent* Sets maximum extent; max width of the zoom area.
Inital extent* Sets a starting map extent, for example one which displays the whole of Norway, or a specific county.

The four settings marked with asterisk (*) applies to the basemaps in the application. The idea is that this simplifies the setup of applications where several background maps share the same settings (typically The Norwegian Mapping Authority’s cached solutions). Where these are set in both the GUI and background map, the latter will be applied. For instance, an application may have 18 default zoom levels (through the GUI), but for a background map which does’nt support multiple levels it can then be adjusted to 16.
