New release PTV Mapserver

PTV Mapserver is now available for download.



New features and major topics:


  • The percentage amount of Ecotaxe, which can be passed to customers is calculated and can be requested via IRouteLister6::GetSectionInfo(), by extracting the value of the key ecmNamedTollCostPercentageToPassOn.
  • New method CalcRouteSimpleSync() introduced, which returns not before a complete route calculation is executed.

Kernel (Rendering)

  • Startup times slightly improved due to an enhanced reading of geographical map data.
  • Province boundaries can be colored independently from country boundaries. The default values are already adapted to this new feature. Additionally, the province boundaries are visible, when smaller map scales are used.
