Radar Plugin radar.swf / radar.js Version 1.19-pr13

  • The radar plugin shows the current viewing cone / area.
  • It can be used on a floor map image to show the current viewing direction and field of view on it. Use the parent attribute to align in on a map image. By using maskchildren="true" on the parent element it's possible to draw the radar cone only with the parent layer.
  • The pano viewing direction can be changed by dragging the radar cone with the mouse (but could be disabled by adding enabled="false").
  • The position and size of it can by adjusted with the standard plugin attributes.

Usage Example:
<plugin name="radar"

        align="lefttop"
        edge="center"
        x="100" y="50"
        scale="5.0"
        heading="0.0"
        headingoffset="90.0"
        fillcolor="0xFFFFFF"
        fillalpha="0.5"
