Niagara Open Street Maps

Open Street Maps Click above for Demo...


The Open Street Maps widget uses the OpenStreetMap API and displays a street map of the world and you can add markers via a simple JSON config. It was created by people like you and free to use under an open license. It also uses the powerful Maptalks mapping engine to integrate 2D/3D maps together by pitching and rotating 2D maps. Get one more dimension for mapping, visualizing and analyzing, with simplicity of 2D maps. Performance is always a priority. With Maptalks and plugins, you can smoothly render 10ks geometries with Canvas 2D and 1000ks with WebGL. You need an internet connection to view the maps. The widget has a number of configurable properties that can be used to modify look, feel, and functionality. Before you start, copy the openStreetMaps-ux.jar file to your modules directory. Restart the station and Workbench.


1. Copy the openStreetMaps-ux.jar file to your modules directory.
2. Open the module from your palette file.
3. Drag and drop the widget from the palette onto your px view.

Open Street Maps Widget

Widget Properties


The widget has a number of configurable properties that can be used to modify look, feel, and functionality. Change the properties as required:

File Config

A JSON config for map markers. See below for setup.
You can point the menu to a file that exists on the station.
Valid values are ords e.g.: file:^openMapsFolder/config.txt
If you do not specify a file reference, only a map will be displayed.


The map will display at this location when initialised.


The viewing angle of the map.

Overview Control, Scale Control, Zoom Control

Shows/hides the controls on the map. Set to true or false.


The default zoom level. Default is 14.


Set these values to manually set the height/width of the map frame.

Markers & Links

The marker config is in JSON format. You can customise as needed. Special characters should be avoided. Advanced users can enter html content in the label and tooltipText properties.

If no link is specified, the marker, label, and tooltip will be shown. For links to navigate correctly in Workbench, and if you're running 4.3 or above, there should be a "toggle preview" button at the end of the toolbar when looking at a Px graphic. This will show you your Px page rendered in a browser and the links will work correctly

JSON Editing

To help build your menu configuration use an online JSON editor like:

Using in your HTML Page

You can now use the widget in your custom html page as long as the html file is in a appropriate station directory.
E.g. C:/../stationName/shared/demo.html

1. Create an html page and place in your station files directory.
2. Create a div element and give it an id so you can inject the widget into this area. E.g.: widget1.
3. Add the following scripts before the closing head tag or the closing body tag. E.g.:

<script type="text/javascript">

    var require = {
        paths: {
            "nmodule": "/module",

Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
