Billboard rotation


I noticed that when I create a billboard, and set the map to be either 3D or Columbus view, and then rotate the map from a touch screen, the billboard rotation is not steady, it changes the heading.

What I need is that when the user rotates the map, the billboard heading will not change at all.

I tried using allignedAxis property around x or y, it is better but still rotating.

How can I set the billboard rotation to not get affected by the map rotation?



Can anyone provide an answer on this issue?

Thanks a lot.

Hi there,

You’re right in that using AlignedAxis is the way to approach this problem, but unfortunately we have a small bug. See the open issue here:

I’ve linked to this forum post so that we can notify you when we get a chance to fix this.
