Hi,
How do I publish my vue file onto free web space?
The help file says you have to add the destination where you want to publish the file as a resource.
I cannot seem to add the URL of my web site to do this.
Thanks alot.

Hi Mary,

VUE does not presently support publishing maps directly into web sites. You can use it to publish to Sakai and Fedora, if you use any of these repositories. Otherwise, you will have to manually upload the files to your web site.

Thanks Nikolai.
If I upload a vue file to a web site manually, does that mean any computor viewing it on the web must have the VUE program installed?
I'd like to have any computor able to click on the links and have them work.
Many thanks for your help.

Currently the only way to load a VUE file is via the client-side software. I.e. a user has to have VUE installed. However, you can export the VUE map in a variety of formats (HTML, JPEG, PDF, etc) which you can upload to your web site.

This said, with VUE 3 (scheduled for May 2009) we will roll out a VUE 3 Java Applet which will allow opening and manipulating VUE maps inside web browsers. Also, we will release a VUE web service, which will provide features such as dynamic rasterization (output in JPEG, etc) of VUE maps without the need of any software.

Hi,

I have downloaded the applet but I don't seem to be able to get it to work on my wiki. Please help me to find a way to share the work that I have done. I received an e-mail in April saying that is could download a trial version 4.0 but I don't see that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Sandra

Sandra,

Currently, we only have the applet hosted on this site, we'll include instructions for deploying the applet in VUE 3 final in the fall.

[color=darkred] [/color][color=#444444] [/color]Hi there,

I just downloaded your software today after looking through hundreds of other mapping software versions and seeing what kind of features they all have. I'm definitely fond of many of the feature types that you've got going within VUE. The main caveat from my perspective is that your workspace allows for the insertion of any type of file into the workspace. The free form layout is perfect for rapid prototyping of media based on this fact. I'm particularly interested in using the software for production management for a startup magazine that I'm putting together where the separate teams will largely be working out creative concepts remotely from one another, and then would be carrying through development of those ideas from concepting to photography and writing or media interviews to final layout production online. So, the main hinging point for all of this puts my focus of interest mainly upon this statement below:

"We will roll out a VUE 3 Java Applet which will allow opening and manipulating VUE maps inside web browsers. Also, we will release a VUE web service, which will provide features such as dynamic rasterization (output in JPEG, etc) of VUE maps without the need of any software."

I worked a little with the applet that you have up and running in the experimental section. Is this something that is going to be rolled out for usage in the near future? I would like to incorporate it into the backend of my drupal site in some fashion if you have a beta available. Otherwise, I know I can share maps physically, but have concerns about version sync and so forth.

Any information would be welcome.

thanks very much,

derek

Derek,

The applet has been added to the regular builds, and so it will be available in the download section when we release VUE 3. If you want to try a dev. build of the applet let me know and I can send you a link.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

That would be great if I could get a link to the development applet. I'd like to begin structuring the navigation of my backend around it.

Thanks very much,

derek

Derek,

Here's a link to the hosted applet, http://vue.tufts.edu/VUEApplet/. Also note, the applet package is available for download as part of VUE 3 now.
