Release August 2019


Release July 2019

  • Outline as layer

The Outline (Dossiergrens) is now displayed as a layer in the viewer. The benefits of this is that it can be treated as a regular layer. The layer can be turned on/off. The layer can be sorted. The layer can be printed to pdf.

The outline now gives you the surface measurements in meters squared when clicked.


Existing viewers have automatically been updated to the new standard. We are not expecting this to have any issues, and although thoroughly tested, it could be that you may encounter an issue. Should this be the case than please contact us.

Viewers that are automatically created by API calls should not be affected by this change.

Data API
  • With this release we are also launching our Data Api. You will be able to access our data directly with an address, perceel or geometry. You can daisy-chain several calls together to enrich you viewer or you own database. - additionally we are launching our webhook. In the future long process will be making use of the webhook, moving the proccesses to the background to ensuring a smooth, fast interaction. The webhook also makes it possible to be more responsive with the viewer/editors of maps-api. For now this functionality is available for the outline-editor (dossiergrens editor). When someone saves an outline geometry a webhook call can be placed notifying your site/app of the change. You can use this information to in combination of both Maps & Data Api to gather the necessary data and geometries.
  • If you want to start using our Data Api please contact us.
