Exponare - Nearmaps Tile Server configuration

UPDATED: January 22, 2018


Exponare can display maps provided by Nearmaps. Before beginning the configuration, a login and password for Nearmaps is required. This would have been provided by Nearmaps when a user purchases an account with NearMaps.
The configuration is as follows:

1. In Exponare configuration manager, add an entry under "Tile layer". Set "Tile Server URL" as https://www.nearmap.com/maps/&x={ROW}&y={COL}&z={LEVEL}&nml=Vert&username=YourUsername &password=YourPswd.Replace NearMaps login/password in the URL with actual login/password provided by Nearmaps for the account.

2. Change the projection of .mws file via WorkSpace manager. Nearmaps layer can only be applied to work-contexts that are in 'Popular Visualization'. If the tile layer is applied to work-contexts which are using other projections, Enquiry shows a message that it cannot apply Tile Layer. To do this, open the .mws file in workspace manager. Click on the “coordinate system” tab and change the projection to "Popular Visualization".

3. Open  the Exponare web.config file, normally under C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Exponare\Server in notepad. Search for "nearmap" and verify that the username and password listed here is the correct one. The key we are looking for is as follows:    
<add key="NearMap" value="https://app.nearmap.com/api/0/checkaccess?username=customername&amp;password=customerpassword&amp;nmf=xml" />
Change the username and password parts to match your Nearmaps account credentials.

4. Perform IIS reset.

Once configured, the tile layers are available in the menu within Exponare Enquiry.
