Hi, would like to use Cadastral maps instead of 19th century maps in Vesta facts and events. Does anybody know how to do this?
Thanks!

In the Control panel there is an option to use custom maps. You have to enter an pattern for the URI using {lati} and {long} as placeholders for the latitude and longitude.

Hi, would like to use Cadastral maps

Do you mean the Cadastral maps on Arcanum (Mapire)? Try the configuration option "Show linked map with aditional options" and the Arcanum map will be displayed in a way you cann easy change to the cadastral maps.

Unfortunately this won't work for Arcanum maps because they use different url parameters (based on a bounding box, which is calculated in Vesta from the lati/long values). I'll either have to add an option to support this type of urls, or an option to use a different map specifically for Arcanum.

As a workaround (you'll have to repeat this after each Vesta release though), you can manually adjust the base url here . You may have to set a different layer in the following line as well.

Note though that this map won't display anything outside the Habsburg empire. The advantage of rola's last suggestion is that you'll always have a selection of maps that are actually available for the given location.

I may even be able to include this in Vesta (i.e. check with Arcanum which maps are available, and then select one of them based on user or general preferences). Do you think the Cadastral map is in general better than the default map?
