mapjfx 1.32.0 and 2.14.0 adds the ability to rotate markers and labels

I just released mapjfx versions 1.32.0 and 2.14.0, they will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>1.32.0</version>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.14.0</version>
  </dependency>

1.32.0 is built using Java 8 and 2.14.0 uses Java 11.

Markers and Labels on a map now have a rotation property which will rotate the corresponding HTML Element. The values goes from 0 to 360 and defines the rotating angle clockwise.

mapjfx 1.31.1 and 2.13.1 fixing event triggering regression

I just released mapjfx versions 1.31.1 and 2.13.1, they will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>1.31.1</version>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.13.1</version>
  </dependency>

1.31.1 is built using Java 8 and 2.13.1 uses Java 11.

These versions fix a regression where events for markers and labels (mouse enter/leave, context click etc) where not created anymore due to enabling scroll/zoom behaviour on markers and labels.
Now all events are dispatched again as they should.

mapjfx 2.13.0 switches back to use Java 11 (LTS)

I just released mapjfx version 2.13.0, it will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.13.0</version>
  </dependency>

I switched back to use Java 11 (LTS) as SceneBuilder is only available for Java 11 (https://gluonhq.com/products/scene-builder/) and libraries built with version 12 or 13 cannot be used in SceneBuilder 11.

mapjfx 1.30.0 and 2.11.0 with new Bing Maps MapTypes

I just released mapjfx versions 1.30.0 and 2.11.0, they will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>

  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.11.0</version>
  </dependency>

1.30.0 is built using Java 8 and 2.11.0 uses Java 12.

In these version 4 new variants for the Bing Map mapType are added (thanks to https://github.com/MalteBahr)

mapjfx 2.8.0 and 1.27.0 with improved configuration options

it is now possible to disable the zoom controls on the Map (Issue #59) using the new introduced configuration object like this:

mapView.initialize(Configuration.builder()
    .showZoomControls(false)
    .build());

versions 1.27.0 and 2.8.0 will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>1.27.0</version>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.8.0</version>
  </dependency>

support for alternate map projections in mapjfx

The latest versions of mapjfx – 1.22.0 and 2.3.0 – have the possibility to have different projections for the map used in OpenLayers. The possible projections are:

  • Web Mercator (EPSG:3857); this is used if no other projection is specified and is the projection that was hardcoded up to now
  • WGS84 (EPSG:4326); this can be set when initializing the MapView object.

Check the mapjfx-demo description and the source code. The actual versions are available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>1.22.0</version>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.3.0</version>
  </dependency>

The two screenshots show the different map projections:

EPSG:4326

mapjfx now supports filled polygons

I just released mapjfx versions 1.21.0 and 2.2.0, they will be available in maven central:

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>1.21.0</version>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.sothawo</groupId>
    <artifactId>mapjfx</artifactId>
    <version>2.2.0</version>
  </dependency>

Now it is possible to close CoordinateLines to polygons with a fill color:
