Probably a bit techy for most but…
I’ve re-implemented the solution using Mapbox instead. The Permit Map functionality is slightly more limited now in it’s filtering functionality. You can now only filter for either All Gold Permits, Gold Fossicking Areas, or Gold Mining Permits. To see if the permit is currently active, being applied for, etc. you’ll now need to click on the permit to see it’s details.
There was a fair amount of work involved:
- Permit Watch had to be changed to update data on Mapbox instead of Google Fusion Tables for the nightly data update process.
- NZ Topo Map had to be updated in order to allow Mapbox data to be displayed on its map.
- Paydirt had to be updated to link up to the new data source for the permit map.
Please let me know if you notice any issues with the new functionality.
