Ticket #3312 (closed feature: wontfix)
|Reported by:||ahocevar||Owned by:||euzuro|
We all know the problems with commercial layers integrated through Layer.EventPane. For Google layers, it is now possible to use the tiles from the API, instead of interacting with a full blown google.maps.Map instance. This works by using the google.maps.MapType's getTile method, which is available even for unrendered google.maps.Map instances, and returns markup for a tile with the same x, y and z tile addressing scheme that we use for Layer.XYZ.
This ticket suggests a new layer type, Layer.GoogleNG, which inherits from Layer.XYZ and uses a new tile class, Tile.Google, for its tiles.
