Description

ChamplainTile objects come from map sources which are represented by ChamplainMapSource. This is should be considered an abstract type as it does nothing of interest.

When loading new tiles, ChamplainView calls champlain_map_source_fill_tile() on the current ChamplainMapSource passing it a ChamplainTile to be filled with the image.

Apart from being a base class of all map sources, ChamplainMapSource also supports cooperation of multiple map sources by arranging them into chains. Every map source has the “next-source” property that determines the next map source in the chain. When a function of a ChamplainMapSource object is invoked, the map source may decide to delegate the work to the next map source in the chain by invoking the same function on it.

To understand the concept of chains, consider for instance a chain consisting of ChamplainFileCache whose next source is ChamplainNetworkTileSource whose next source is an error tile source created with champlain_map_source_factory_create_error_source(). When champlain_map_source_fill_tile() is called on the first object of the chain, ChamplainFileCache, the cache checks whether it contains the requested tile in its database. If it does, it returns the tile; otherwise, it calls champlain_map_source_fill_tile() on the next source in the chain (ChamplainNetworkTileSource). The network tile source loads the tile from the network. When successful, it returns the tile; otherwise it requests the tile from the next source in the chain (error tile source). The error tile source always generates an error tile, no matter what its next source is.
