Alternative maps for servers in China

April 3, 2018

Survey Solutions map reports utilize maps provided by Google through their online service. To enable access to Google maps from China, the following two parameters should be added to the appSettings section in web.config configuration file of the Survey Solutions server:

<add key="Google.Map.BaseApiUrl" value="http://maps.google.cn"/> <add key="Google.Map.BaseUrl" value="http://google.cn"/>

This will replace the common Google maps engine used by all countries with the one specific for China. A restart of the web server may be required for the new settings to take effect.

It is recommended that the users do not change any other settings or parameters in this file without prior consultation with the support team, as it may negatively affect the security and reliability of the service.
