IDs of custom online maps
« on: June 08, 2019, 14:50:45 »
Hi!

I have some questions regarding the provider-ID in the .xml of online-maps.

The ID must be >1000, but are there other restrictions? E.g.,
  • Does an ID have to be numerical, or are other characters allowed?
  • Maximum ID string/number length?
  • Is there a list of 'standard' IDs or of agreed-upon quasi-standard IDs? (If not, I suggest creating one (Wiki? Forum thread?), to prevent conflicts or unnecessary editing work when sharing online maps.)

Thanks for enlightenment!

Hello,
the only limit is really just ID value. It has to be above the mentioned 1000. And yes, it has to be a numerical value as well.
In case of multiple custom ID ... first win and (maybe) Locus will warn about duplicate ID's.
Ideas, wishes, problems
