Publisher Customized Publications

Customize template html

An Orbit Publication viewed in a browser can be customized via simple html editing.

The Orbit Publisher service uses pre-configured html templates to create the published publication webpages.
These html templates contain multiple variables which will be completed on publishing the publications.

One can add or modify these templates according his preference. E.g. favicon, page title.
This is html editing has nothing to do with Orbit, so for more information, let me Google that for you.

All available publication templates will be published.
The templates are managed by the extension Publisher
<Orbit installation directory>\server\program\services\ext_publisher\publication_template

Any adjustment of the html templates requires a re-publish of the publication to take advantage of the template edits.

Add geocode plugins

It is possible to embed your own geocode search engine to the web publication. Orbit is a software company focusing inter alia on oblique and mobile mapping.
We do not develop and maintain geocode search engines. But we do support the use of geocode services.

Using java scripting it is possible to embed and use an existing geocode service to center the map and search for the nearest available panorama image. Add one ore more javascript geocode plugins to the Orbit publisher service :
<Orbit installation directory>\server\program\services\ext_publisher\publication_geocode_plugins

Use the default available Google plugin as example to create your own.
Note, this Google geocode plugin uses the free Google services probably with limited capabilities.

All available plugins will be listed from the EOS Console to be added to a publication.
