Example #25 - Raster Tile Provider Ddemo
There are many cases where you want to provide raster tiles to Altus on demand, but the two most common cases are:
- You are trying to integrate tiles from another map rendering engine into your Altus map. In this case, you request tiles from the second engine and send them to Altus as tiles are requested.
- You want to create your own raster tiles on the fly, say from data derived from a database.
Altus makes this kind of stuff easy, as demonstrated here. In this case, the code is set up so the engine requests raster tiles, and the code fulfills the requests with translucent tiles filled with a random color. A handy side effect is that you can now see tile boundaries easily as you zoom in.
