      PTV xServer Features

      • Coordinate Transformation: Chinese legislation requires that all digital map data is stored in China in a specific coordinate system. To transform your coordinates to this system, we are providing a coordinate transformation service from WGS84 to chinese proprietary coordinate system. You will find further informations in this following documentation: PTV xServer Coordinate Shifting Service
      • Geocoding: findAddressByText() is the only enabled xLocate method and returns country, postal code, city, city district, street, house number and coordinate. The data stock does include POIs and adress points. Reverse geocoding is not available. The geocoder will work on syllables. Since the Chinese characters consists of syllables, the geocoder in the first version may not select syllables related to streets or cities only. With this the selection might be very large. But the best match will appear still first.
      • Mapping: The Rendering is possible for the whole of China. Please be aware to use the proprietary Chinese coordinate system as input format.
      • Routing: The Routing is possible for the whole of China. Please be aware to use the proprietary Chinese coordinate system as input format.
      • Trip Planning: The Trip Planning is possible for the whole of China. Please be aware to use the proprietary Chinese coordinate system as input format.
