8 Integrating with Oracle Map Viewer

Oracle Communications Marketing and Advertising can be set up to query map information from an Oracle Map Viewer mapping service to use enhanced visual mapping features used in Location Based Marketing.

Overview

The Location Based Marketing features in Marketing and Advertising can acquire map presentation data for use in campaign configuration.

Visual map data is sourced from an optional integration with the Oracle Fusion Middleware Map Viewer. The Oracle Fusion Middleware Map Viewer product is separately licensable and may have other dependent software products from Oracle (e.g. Oracle Spatial) as well as third-party providers (e.g. map data vendor).

For more information about Oracle Fusion Middleware Map Viewer consult the product information page at:

For more information about Oracle Spatial consult the product information page at:

Additional details about Oracle products and licensing can also be obtained from your Oracle license representative.

Determine the Oracle Fusion Middleware Map Viewer Service URL

Consult the system administrator for your licensed Oracle Fusion Middleware Map Viewer installation and obtain the mapping service URL for your instance. The URL should be in the following format:

http://Map Viewer Server Address:Port/mapviewer

The URL will be used in the Marketing and Advertising web client by a system owner user to designate the mapviewer Web service URL.

For testing purposes, Oracle provides the following demonstration mapping service URL for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware Mapviewer:

http://elocation.oracle.com/mapviewer

Add the Web Service URL in the System Owner GUI Interface

Marketing and Advertising is configured to use the mapviewer service URL by a system owner user. To add the mapviewer service URL to your instance of Marketing and Advertising:
