maybe this isn't the right place for this question, but i hope someone can help me.
I write a little programm in Java which use the filestructure of the maps downloaded with GMDL.
After using GMDL, there is also a file named coords.txt with 3 numbers in it.
now my question is: what are they?
or more specific: How can i know, which coordinate have the corners of the selected area, so i can compute my actual position given by my GPS-Mouse.
"71480 45440 0"
for example is the entry of coords.txt of a part from vienna.
thx in advance and kindly regards
How is the number "71480 45440 0" related to Latitude and Longitude ?
These numbers are a coordinate pair in par with what mapping solutions ( like Google Maps ) use to identify tiles. They encode zoom level information on top of the lat/lon as well. There is a conversion process for acquiring the lat/lon values ( using transverse mercator projection ) from these. It involves conversions from 2D units (like pixels) to geocentric degrees and radians. More detail on the math is available in the source files, look for initLatLon(), getLatLong() and getTileCoord() functions in main.c
puh, found it
i hope. i can understand it
