Hi,

Why I not really see the advantage there either, you certainly can do this with CSS on an HTML object basis:

transform: rotate(20deg);

In theory you could apply this on a single object in the MAP - would need some investigation or before/after HTML element. It might even be possible to rotate the whole MAP while showing it in an iframe HTML object via another HTML page.

Still, I am curious about the background of this one.. :-)

Hi there,

Unfortunately, this is a rare request and I can't remember a similar request in the past. Could you clarify what the advantage would be of such an option?

Best regards.

Hi Florian,

CSS3 for the win. :)
Thanks for the reply! We are also curious about the use case as this feedback might be used internally later for improvements.

Best regards.

Hi, this is something I am looking for as well. For me turning the map is important due to the geographical layout of the Maldives. It's stretched over an expanse of 820km from North to South. So displaying a nationwide monitoring is a bit challenging. a 90 degree turn would make things so much easier :p
