Altitude: The height above sea level, in meters. A negative value indicates that number of meters below sea level (this is obviously rare). Note: This is not height above ground.
FoV (Field of View): Like Zoom, this parameter makes the subject appear closer or further from the focal plane of a camera. The values for FoV are measured in degrees. The smaller the number the closer the subject will appear. (e.g. 10° = narrow, 180° = wide)
Latitude and Longitude: Together, these define (when setting) or describe (when getting) where in the world a point is. We use the WGS84 standard for latitude and longitude.
Marker: An image overlaid on a map (either the Google map or our sphere viewer), which typically marks or indicates some object or feature on a map. In our documentation, markers are used only in the sphere viewer (not the Google map). The following marker types are supported:
Any marker (except a sphere marker) may have definitions for the following:
Iconography: If not defined, then the default icon and color is used to paint the marker. An icon marker pulls its icon from the AerialSphere icon library, possibly with an updated color. A custom marker pulls its icon from an image that lives at a user-supplied URL.
Hover: When defined, this text shows on hover.
Popup: Title text and/or description text/html can define a popup. This popup shows when the marker is clicked and can be hidden again with the close button on the top-right.
Lat/long: Where to place the marker on the map.
Pan: This parameter allows you to set the view (left or right) in the current sphere. Passing it a 0 value would set the view facing north.
Sphere: Our word for a 360-degree panoramic aerial image.
Tilt: This parameter allows you to set the view (up or down) in the current sphere. Passing it a 0 value would set the view straight up, while passing it a 180 value would set the view straight down.
Zoom: Like FoV, this parameter makes the subject appear closer or further from the focal plane of a camera. The higher the value for zoom the closer the subject will appear.
