Mapviewer 11g Getfeatureinfo Default Value For Radius Parameter (Doc ID 1299342.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle 9iAS MapViewer - Version: 11.1.1.1 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Want a default value for the RADIUS parameter of a getFeatureInfoRequest. This default value should be configurable for the mapviewer servlet.   Proposed solution is to set the default value per theme. If the RADIUS parameter is set then use the given value.

The reason for this is, some GIS applications (like QuantumGIS, GDV SpatialCommander, ...) do not provide a value for the RADIUS parameter of a getFeatureInfo request. Therefore it is almost impossible to hit/find a point by the request.

This setting is available in UMN Mapserver, a competitive product.
