How to Change Advanced Features of an OpenLayers 3 Map
OpenLayers 3 has been the go-to map-creation software for web-developers for years now.
That’s great and all, but how do you use it? What’s it good for? Why should you use it? If you’ve been asking yourself any of these questions, ask no more! This brief guide will answer all of them and more in only a couple minutes.
The Internet is Powered By Code
This makes OpenLayers one of the best fits for embedding custom-made maps, vectors, and more into your website or web application.
Coding Isn’t Easy
First, import the OpenLayers CSS file. This makes the process of editing advanced features much less time-consuming. A few of the general commands for OpenLayers might help here as well.
Second, add slider controls. Creating two variables, one for fullscreen control and another for zoom, you significantly improve the functionality of your map, making it that much more useful.
The third step for most people is to remove the function that causes the map to zoom when using the mouse wheel.
Lastly, enter the code necessary to generate a pop-up relay, configure the specifics to suit your own individual needs, and you’re good to go!
