4.80

Changes made from version 4.79 to 4.80:

Geocoding

  • Added a new maximum batchSize parameter to the BulkGeoCode, BulkReverseGeoCode, and BulkReverseGeoCodeFull methods. This integer value specifies the maximum number of locations to include in a GeoStreamRepository geocoding request (in GeoStream mode).

    For example, with a bulkArgs, LatLons, or bulkReverseGeocodeArgs array containing 52 addresses or locations, setting a batchSize value of '10' will result in 6 separate requests: five including ten locations, and one including two. Previously, all bulk location and address requests were sent to the GeoStream server at the same time, which could result in timeouts.

4.79

Changes made from version 4.78 to 4.79:

Geocoding

  • Improved the Autocomplete Geocoder to find matches where the query includes spelling mistakes in word substitutes for addresses; for example, "rosd" instead of "road" for an address containing "rd".
  • Improved the ranking of Autocomplete Geocoder suggestions when a subset of suggestions include a prefix match of a word substitute in the address.

Routing

  • Corrected an issue that could stop historical route highlights accurately snapping to roads in some scenarios.
4.78

Changes made from version 4.77 to 4.78:

The GeoBase resource website for downloading the latest SDK, map data, and other resources has changed from dev.telogis.com to spatial.verizonconnect.com. The website has been improved to make it easier to find and download the files you need. You can use your existing credentials to sign in.

Mapping

  • Fixed an issue with ShapeLayer.QueryShapes when provided with an IMap parameter. The issue could lead to an incorrect number of polygons when the map had a non-zero heading.

Routing

  • Corrected a bug that could prevent requested route highlights from being returned.

Alchemy

  • Improved error messages in Alchemy that are displayed when processing an unsupported geometry.
4.77

Changes made from version 4.76.1 to 4.77:

Routing

  • Fixed cases where route stops were connecting to a restricted road.

GeoStream

  • Corrected an issue that sometimes prevented GetLatestTraffic tasks from being removed from a GeoStream server’s work intensive pool.
4.76.1

Changes made from version 4.76 to 4.76.1:

Navigation

  • Corrected an issue in Text-to-Speech that caused some abbreviations to be read out incorrectly, for example an "E" in an address could be read out as "Estate" instead of "East".
4.76

Changes made from version 4.75 to 4.76:

Geocoding

  • Improved the Autocomplete Geocoder to return results for queries that contain repeated content.
  • Corrected an issue with the Reverse Geocoder that caused it to find addresses on the wrong side of the street in some rare cases when using point address data.
  • Improved Location Search to include correct non-numeric street numbers, for example 18a, in suggestions for queries consisting of a latitude and longitude.

Routing

  • Improved navigation directions to show full non-numeric street numbers, for example 18a, and to format addresses correctly for the corresponding country, for example by correctly ordering street name and number.
  • Corrected the instructions for directions where multiple route-stops overlap.
  • Resolved a fitted history bug where the time between two points was higher than expected.
  • Fixed a small subset of routes that were unable to connect between some countries.

GeoStream

  • Fixed a threading issue that caused infrequent failures when caching tile images.
4.75

Changes made from version 4.74 to 4.75:

Address Formatter

  • Added functionality to the GeoBase Address Formatter to support formatting with a LocalizedUnits string. The string can be preformatted using GetLocalizedUnitString and stored in the StructuredAddressData. If present, the LocalizedUnits will be prioritized over formatting the Units array.
  • Changed the format of Australian addresses so that they now exclude city unless no suburb is specified.

Alchemy

  • Corrected a bug in Alchemy that caused duplicated street flags.

Mapping

  • Fixed an issue with PolygonFence where the wrong map size would be used for headings that were not multiples of 90.

Routing

  • Fixed a bug where route history was not generating enough network candidates to ensure accurate route highlights.
  • Corrected an issue where route highlights would not snap back to road networks.
4.74

Changes made from version 4.73 to 4.74:

As announced in Product Lifecycle Support, support for the Autocomplete Geocoder and Drill-Down Geocoder using the latest GeoBase version and data files prior to 17Q3 (2017 3rd quarter) ended July 1, 2018. To continue using the Autocomplete Geocoder or Drill-Down Geocoder you must use data files from 17Q3 or later, which require GeoBase v4.31 or later. For more information see Data File Concept.

GBFS (GeoBase File System)

  • Corrected an issue with GBFSVerify, which caused it to fail when verifying large files.

Geocoding

  • Added the StreetNumberFull property to the Address object that is returned by the Reverse Geocoder. StreetNumberFull is a String, and it can include non-numeric street numbers, such as 50a or 3-5.

GeoStream

  • Fixed an issue where satellite imagery was no longer displayed after 30 days of continuous GeoStream uptime.
  • Corrected a bug where the GeoStream server sometimes threw exceptions when there were canceled requests.
  • Fixed a memory leak in GeoStream that occurred when generating tiles from fallback satellite images.
  • Added a restriction on the maximum stats file size that can be read by the GeoStream server to prevent out-of-memory exceptions.

Alchemy

  • Corrected an error in Alchemy, which caused ferry links to be duplicated inside bounding boxes.
  • Fixed an issue in the Alchemy's neigh.gbd file, which prevented the Forward Geocoder from finding addresses in some regions.
4.73

Changes made from version 4.72 to 4.73:

Geocoding

  • Improved the quality of results returned by the Autocomplete Geocoder for queries using country-specific address aliases and formats when used with GBFS files from 18Q3 or later.

Routing

  • Improved some truck routes to avoid unsuitable roads and to favor highways.
  • Updated some routes to avoid undesirable route diversions along side roads.
  • Improved truck routing around route stop locations.
  • Enhanced the routing module to use vehicle speed units (metric or imperial) available from the real time traffic fetcher.
4.72

Changes made from version 4.71 to 4.72:

General

  • Added the QuerySpeedLimit method to the DataQuery class. This method returns the speed limit at a given location, and for other parameters including heading, vehicle specification, and time.

GeoStream

  • Corrected traffic direction inaccuracies in real-time traffic, and incorrect unit interpretations for Canadian live traffic.

GBFS (GeoBase File System)

  • Made various improvements to the superlink routing network, including removing redundant links and splitting some superlinks up to allow for more entry and exit points to the links.

Mapping

  • Removed support for negative buffers when using the IMap.ZoomToBoundingBox method, which was added in GeoBase release 4.69.
4.71

Changes made from version 4.70 to 4.71:

GeoStream

  • Modified the weighted utilization statistics on stats.aspx to display the square root of the mean weighted utilization. This leads to the displayed weighted utilization being closer to 1 for more uneven loads.
4.70

Changes made from version 4.69 to 4.70:

Routing

  • Corrected a bug where the MessagesBundle was sometimes not set correctly on a Navigator, and the resulting directions where shown in English instead of in the language defined by the MessagesBundle.

Alchemy

  • Reduced the size of the neigh.gbd file in some GBFS files produced by Alchemy.
4.69

Changes made from version 4.68 to 4.69:

Routing

  • Fixed a bug where MultiThreadMatrix would throw errors when using a GeoStreamRepository.

Mapping

  • Added a new overload of the method ZoomToBoundingBox, which allows you to specify buffer sizes independently for each side of the map.

GeoStream

  • Modified the GeoStream statistics page (stats.aspx) to select the secondary tag SuperTiles by default.
  • Resolved an issue causing cancelled JSON routing requests to be recorded in GeoStream stats as JSON request failures instead of JSON request cancellations.
  • Added support for querying GBFS file vendor versions of GeoStreamRepositories and MultiRepositories using the VendorVersion property.
4.68

Changes made from version 4.67.1 to 4.68:

Alchemy

  • Added support for dotted file names, for example "RED.USA.shp", to Alchemy.
4.67.1

Changes made from version 4.67 to 4.67.1:

Licensing

  • Added FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) compliance to GeoBase and GeoStream. When using GeoStream, both client and server must be updated for FIPS compliance.

    As part of FIPS compliance, cache paths in the GeoStream tile cache are changed, invalidating any current cache. To maintain previous cache paths, if FIPS compliance is not needed, add a UseLegacyDatasetHashes key with a value of "true" to the GeoStream web.config file.

    Some tools, such as Alchemy, GBFSDecompressor, and GBFS Tool, might experience issues when run with Microsoft Windows’ FIPS compliance settings enabled.
