With the latest GeoMapFish release, Camptocamp introduces web component technology into one of its signature software products as well as new features that improve the responsiveness, interoperability and usability of the tool.

After learning that GeoMapFish’s original JavaScript framework (AngularJS) would soon be made obsolete, Camptocamp gathered the community of the software’s users to work out a process that would allow for a smooth transition onto a more modern framework. 

For the user group, it was important that GeoMapFish could continue to be used and improved during the migration, so Camptocamp decided to take an incremental approach, starting with the introduction of web components architecture in the 2.7 version. By 3.0, the migration should be complete.

New features in GeoMapFish 2.7

The GeoMapFish 2.7 release also contains several new features and improvements, including a first implementation of vector tiles support. Vector tiles use coordinate-based data instead of pixels, which store less information and are therefore quicker to load as well as easier to update in the backend. This means that GeoMapFish maps can be updated faster and more regularly.
