Hi,

I am trying to load a different location then what they use in the tutorial and once I change the lat/long (in both the origin location as wel as in the map extent location) I can't see anything anymore in the circle. Am I missing something?

https://developers.arcgis.com/unreal-engine/maps/tutorials/display-a-map-ui/

Just want to show a different location then New York:-)

 

Thanks

All you need to do is update the LocationComponent properties on the Camera actor

Hello,

I suspect what you are seeing is common to tutorials - a small focused data set that serves to illustrate the concept. It is not a global dataset where we can move large distances. For the location you are interested in you will need to provide the relevant data sets.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your info and at this moment I am not even interested in the other data sets (that is being used in the tutorial) except showing the right area in the circle. I want to show the area that I am currently living in and even with the right EPSG, correct lat/long I can't change the map to show my area.

I have heard that in ArcGIS for Unity you can do all these things. ArcGISMapActor doesn't allow you to perform any transformations inside Unreal.
