Hello Javor,

the colors used in a map profile are defined by the rendering profile. Though we offer various standard profiles it looks like there's no PTV standard profile for nightly usage available so far.

The mechanisms behind the generic render profile is described here: ... nPage.html#VisibleGreenZones%3FTocPath%3DTechnical%2520Concepts%7CAbout%2520Legacy%2520Profiles%7CPTV%2520xMap%7CF.A.Q.%7C_____1

May I ask what the usecase behind the question is? Do you want to build a navigation software?

Best regards,

Default profile
Sandbox profile

Hello Javor,

just received feedback from product management. Unfortunately there's not enough potential for such a profile and so it won't be provided.

Best regards,

Hi Javor,

Though there are two options for the WPF-Control. You can test them at

1. You can make the Tile-Layer semi-opaque and set the background of the control to black (sample CustomLayout).

2. Use the control with xServer-2. xMapServer-2 provides two new basemap-profiles: "blackmarble" and "silica" (sample XSTwo).

Best Regards,
