We are now introducing a way for you to share your views in VehicleTracker with the world, we call it Publish. The Publish feature is currently available in the labsupdate repository.

Publish enables you to show vehicles in a View from VehicleTracker on another web page as an embedded map, for example a live public view of selected vehicles on a corporate site or a blog. To install, setup and use the Publish plugin please follow this guide.

How to Manage

To be able to Publish a View an operator needs to be member of a role that has the Publish privilege enabled.

Follow the Publish wizard, it is divided into 4 steps:

  1. Choose a size for your map

  3. Enable the current View. You can also Disable the View if you do not want to Publish it anymore
