Updated: World Map Kit Data Extractor

Map Suite World Streets provides street level maps for the World and includes a utility to cut out only the part of the world you care about, allowing you to deploy a much smaller dataset. This utility was recently updated and includes a few new features:

  1. The new extractor now uses our OsmWorldMapKitLayer.dll in order to determine which tables to cut data from each ZoomLevel. This means if you only want to get data for ZoomLevels 1-10, it will only cut data for the tables that are being displayed between ZoomLevels 1-10, saving time and cutting out unnecessary data. It will dynamically determine this based on your OsmWorldMapKitLayer.dll, so if you are using a custom OsmWorldMapKitLayer, it will be able to tell which tables you are using.
  2. The old version of the extractor had the “preserve country-level data” function hardcoded to only save worldwide data between ZoomLevel01 – ZoomLevel07. With the new version, the user can specify between which ZoomLevels they wish to capture worldwide data – for example, between ZoomLevel01 – ZoomLevel10.
  3. The new extractor allows users to specify multiple bounding boxes to cut out, and can specify which ZoomLevels they wish to cut data from for each bounding box.
