View Full Version : Maps from other websites
May 3rd, 2007, 15:20
Hi guys would it be possible to download maps from other websites other than the ones featured in GMDL?

the short answer is YES..
The long answer is - it may be difficult, since you may need to figure out how to automate those maps retrieval; and after you need to mapCrunch them to get GPS coords working...

On a similar topic, I'm thinking of separating the sources from the main code.
This is being done for slightly different reasons, but will give custom source configurability.
My idea is a format along the lines of (and any ideas are welcome):
Virtual Earth Map
for automatic value extraction
with the following format $$$value$$$format_parameters_etc$$$
desmond81, you may want to take a look at mapURL.cs in GMDL and have a go at changing one of the sources, or creating a new one.

su30mkm, their tileset is 300x300 so would need resizing (will put that in for the next version), also most probably not compatible with google tiles so will need exporting and relinking via MapCruncher. It would look something like this however:
