Importing of profiles from Map&Guide

Postby m.jagemann » Mon Feb 19, 2018 1:37 pm

Hi All,

I would like to know if there is a possibility to export vehicleprofiles from Map&Guide and import them into the xServer?
If it is not a standard feature, maybe there is a converter somewhere?

Thanks for your feedback.

In case of map and guide internet or intranet: this is possible. Open the "Vehicle management" use case, right click on a vehicle and select "Export vehicle profile". this gives you an XML files that the xServers will understand as a routing profile. Do check the feature layers element as MG might be using a feature layer that you have not licensed (iirc currently some profiles make use of PTV_TruckAttributes).

As for map and guide deskop: there is no automated way to do this. You have to setup the XML profile manually.
