Texture projection on countries
« on: August 03, 2015, 04:43:15 PM »
Do you think it would be possible to show a texture (a 2D flag) on an entire country, like this ?. Showing a centered flag inside a country (since label positions use centroid) could be an alternative. I think it looks nice :)

That's a cool idea.

Now that we have the geography stuff in place, we're thinking of including some decoration options in V3, like custom labels, symbols/icons, animated stickers and routes. The idea is provide some sort of framework so you can easily add your content to the Earth map.

Your suggestion perhaps could be accomplished using some kind of masking, if we take the texture road... if you have your content in SVG vector format we can even draw it procedurally masking againt the frontiers data. I'll think about for the V3 ahead.

Thank you!

Hi Roms6!

Take a look at this thread which introduces the new Decorator component in V3 that allows assigning textures to country regions!

Hope you find it useful.
