Questions regarding Indoor Navigation App in Outsystems

Questions regarding Indoor Navigation App in Outsystems

  

Dear Outsystems Experts,

I have requirements for Indoor Navigation App.


I already have indoor map services for doing core functions such as:

- define buildings, floors, indoor/outdoor POIs, paths, category icons, etc

- REST API for get buildings, floors, indoor/outdoor POIs, category icons, etc

- Cordova plugin for accessing native-only functions such as Start/Stop Positioning, Request Direction, Request Navigation Update, Update Navigation, etc


What still troubling me was:

1. I know Google Maps JavaScript API v3 have limitations, especially with navigation with maps rotating on it's own based on Compass bearing sensor.

2. If I had to use Google Maps Native API (android & ios), is there any Cordova plugin available for this?

3. How do I control native Google Maps Native widget using Outsystems, do I have to use native coding again?


Maybe I was pushing Outsystems Platform too far for this requirement?

Would Native would be better option in the end?

Thanks, I eagerly waiting for feedback.

Hi,

I am no expert, but I was wondering how this solution was coming on ? I am interested in building a similar such solution.

Currently we're trying Native Google Maps Forge Component (it's a cordova plugin).

We're still struggling with it.

We are currently looking at Mapzwize and were considering trying to use some of their open source library in Outsytems, https://docs.mapwize.io/doc/js/3.1.1/ . I have not done something like this before in Outsystems, do you think that it would be possible?

MapWize seems can rotate the map...

It might be good solution...
