Class: VectorImageLayer

ol/layer/VectorImage~VectorImageLayer


import VectorImageLayer from 'ol/layer/VectorImage';

Vector data is rendered client-side, to an image. This layer type provides great performance during panning and zooming, but point symbols and texts are always rotated with the view and pixels are scaled during zoom animations. For more accurate rendering of vector data, use VectorLayer instead.

Note that any property set in the options is set as a BaseObject property on the layer object; for example, setting title: 'My Title' in the options means that title is observable, and has get/set accessors.

new VectorImageLayer(options)

Name Type Description
className string (defaults to 'ol-layer')

A CSS class name to set to the layer element.

opacity number (defaults to 1)

Opacity (0, 1).

visible boolean (defaults to true)

Visibility.

extent Extent | undefined

The bounding extent for layer rendering. The layer will not be rendered outside of this extent.

zIndex number | undefined

The z-index for layer rendering. At rendering time, the layers will be ordered, first by Z-index and then by position. When undefined, a zIndex of 0 is assumed for layers that are added to the map's layers collection, or Infinity when the layer's setMap() method was used.

minResolution number | undefined

The minimum resolution (inclusive) at which this layer will be visible.

maxResolution number | undefined

The maximum resolution (exclusive) below which this layer will be visible.

minZoom number | undefined

The minimum view zoom level (exclusive) above which this layer will be visible.

maxZoom number | undefined

The maximum view zoom level (inclusive) at which this layer will be visible.

renderOrder OrderFunction | undefined

Render order. Function to be used when sorting features before rendering. By default features are drawn in the order that they are created. Use null to avoid the sort, but get an undefined draw order.

renderBuffer number (defaults to 100)

The buffer in pixels around the viewport extent used by the renderer when getting features from the vector source for the rendering or hit-detection. Recommended value: the size of the largest symbol, line width or label.

source VectorSource | undefined

Source.

map Map | undefined

Sets the layer as overlay on a map. The map will not manage this layer in its layers collection, and the layer will be rendered on top. This is useful for temporary layers. The standard way to add a layer to a map and have it managed by the map is to use map.addLayer().

declutter boolean (defaults to false)

Declutter images and text on this layer. The priority is defined by the zIndex of the style and the render order of features. Higher z-index means higher priority. Within the same z-index, a feature rendered before another has higher priority.

style StyleLike | null | undefined

Layer style. When set to null, only features that have their own style will be rendered. See Style for the default style which will be used if this is not set.

imageRatio number (defaults to 1)

Ratio by which the rendered extent should be larger than the viewport extent. A larger ratio avoids cut images during panning, but will cause a decrease in performance.

properties Object.<string, *> | undefined

Arbitrary observable properties. Can be accessed with #get() and #set().

Methods

Increases the revision counter and dispatches a 'change' event.

dispatchEvent(event){boolean | undefined} inherited

Dispatches an event and calls all listeners listening for events of this type. The event parameter can either be a string or an Object with a type property.

Name Type Description
event BaseEvent | string

Event object.

Returns:
false if anyone called preventDefault on the event object or if any of the listeners returned false.

Gets a value.

Name Type Description
key string

Key name.

Returns:
Value.

getExtent(){Extent | undefined} inherited

Return the extent of the layer or undefined if it will be visible regardless of extent.

Returns:
The layer extent.

getFeatures(pixel){PromiseFeature>>} inherited

Get the topmost feature that intersects the given pixel on the viewport. Returns a promise that resolves with an array of features. The array will either contain the topmost feature when a hit was detected, or it will be empty.

The hit detection algorithm used for this method is optimized for performance, but is less accurate than the one used in map.getFeaturesAtPixel(). Text is not considered, and icons are only represented by their bounding box instead of the exact image.

Name Type Description
pixel Pixel

Pixel.

Returns:
Promise that resolves with an array of features.

getKeys(){Array.<string>} inherited

Get a list of object property names.

Returns:
List of property names.

getMaxResolution(){number} inherited

Return the maximum resolution of the layer.

Returns:
The maximum resolution of the layer.

getMaxZoom(){number} inherited

Return the maximum zoom level of the layer.

Returns:
The maximum zoom level of the layer.

getMinResolution(){number} inherited

Return the minimum resolution of the layer.

Returns:
The minimum resolution of the layer.

getMinZoom(){number} inherited

Return the minimum zoom level of the layer.

Returns:
The minimum zoom level of the layer.

getOpacity(){number} inherited

Return the opacity of the layer (between 0 and 1).

Returns:
The opacity of the layer.

getProperties(){Object.<string, *>} inherited

Get an object of all property names and values.

Returns:
Object.

getRevision(){number} inherited

Get the version number for this object. Each time the object is modified, its version number will be incremented.

Returns:
Revision.

getSource(){SourceType | null} inherited

Get the layer source.

Returns:
The layer source (or null if not yet set).

getStyle(){StyleLike | null | undefined} inherited

Get the style for features. This returns whatever was passed to the style option at construction or to the setStyle method.

Returns:
Layer style.

getStyleFunction(){StyleFunction | undefined} inherited

Get the style function.

Returns:
Layer style function.

getVisible(){boolean} inherited

Return the visibility of the layer (true or false).

Returns:
The visibility of the layer.

getZIndex(){number} inherited

Return the Z-index of the layer, which is used to order layers before rendering. The default Z-index is 0.

Returns:
The Z-index of the layer.

Listen once for a certain type of event.

Name Type Description
type string | Array.<string>

The event type or array of event types.

listener function

Set the extent at which the layer is visible. If undefined, the layer will be visible at all extents.

Name Type Description
extent Extent | undefined

The extent of the layer.

Sets the layer to be rendered on top of other layers on a map. The map will not manage this layer in its layers collection. This is useful for temporary layers. To remove an unmanaged layer from the map, use #setMap(null).

To add the layer to a map and have it managed by the map, use addLayer instead.

Name Type Description
map Map | null

Map.

setMaxResolution(maxResolution) inherited

Set the maximum resolution at which the layer is visible.

Name Type Description
maxResolution number

The maximum resolution of the layer.

setMaxZoom(maxZoom) inherited

Set the maximum zoom (exclusive) at which the layer is visible. Note that the zoom levels for layer visibility are based on the view zoom level, which may be different from a tile source zoom level.

Name Type Description
maxZoom number

The maximum zoom of the layer.

setMinResolution(minResolution) inherited

Set the minimum resolution at which the layer is visible.

Name Type Description
minResolution number

The minimum resolution of the layer.

Name Type Description
values Object.<string, *>

Values.

silent boolean | undefined

Update without triggering an event.

setSource(source) inherited

Set the layer source.

Name Type Description
source SourceType | null

The layer source.

Set the style for features. This can be a single style object, an array of styles, or a function that takes a feature and resolution and returns an array of styles. If set to null, the layer has no style (a null style), so only features that have their own styles will be rendered in the layer. Call setStyle() without arguments to reset to the default style. See the ol/style/Style module for information on the default style.

If your layer has a static style, you can use "flat" style object literals instead of using the Style and symbolizer constructors (Fill, Stroke, etc.). See the documentation for the flat style types to see what properties are supported.

style StyleLike | FlatStyleLike | null | undefined

Layer style.

setVisible(visible) inherited

Set the visibility of the layer (true or false).
