Updated Great Britain CoverageBy Tim Jenks on 1st September 2015 | Announcements
We are pleased to announce an update to our Great Britain coverage. This data refresh covering nearly 230 thousand square kilometres of Great Britain, including every road and man made structure.
In addition to providing your apps with a more up-to-date map of these areas, this update also brings a couple of exciting improvements to our Great Britain coverage.
Our Great Britain building data has been refreshed including the latest Ordnance Survey coverage. This brings our latest building interaction features to the whole of Great Britain
We announced the initial release of collision detection with map elements back in March. This feature allows your app to select individual elements of the map such as buildings and roads.
In the March release, the collision detection data was available in the San Francisco area only.
As of the latest map update, collection detection data is now available across all of Great Britain and North America.
If you’d like to try this feature out, you can find a demo in our SDK Samples here: https://github.com/eegeo/mobile-sdk-harness/tree/master/src/Examples/EnvironmentRayCaster
Building metadata, including the footprint, number of floors, and anchor points is now available for the whole of Great Britain
This enables selection of and interaction with individual buildings.
