    Well I thought its time to make a Wish.
    like an Examp, on how to implement a Map (JPG, BMP) or such, using the GPSSerial.dll. Some Folks are just having Problems with this and maybe it would make things a might simpler, for some.:sign0089:

    Thx

    GPS.dll would be of interest.

    :) My Xmas wish, wish, wish.

    A example on using your own BMP or JPEG as a topo Map that sets tracks and waypoints, show position on Map using GPS.
    Using gpsdriver.dll or GPSSerial.dll, or the GPS.dll.

    Best regards

    Xmas wish

    Wow! That would go way beyond normal GPS code. You'd need to be able to calibrate a map (which would be a heavy coding task). Then you'd need to be able to convert a point on the map into lat/long coords using the calibration data.

    If anyone can do that sort of coding, I would also be very interested in it. :)

    I agree (if this is what you meant) that this would be a bit wide for a DLL/library. And I thought that this forum was meant for wishes for features of Basic4PPC itself rather than for additional libraries or for contributed applications.

    But I draw your attention to the "Scaled Maps" application that mentions that it does geo-referencing to lat/long (but only two points so no compensation for skew) and does not have any connection to GPS input.

    But the latter doesn't sound very onerous! Especially since GPS4PPC includes a GUI for choosing datum and so forth. Can't be long before someone stitches the two together...

    Hello SarahWard.

    Did you have a look at the http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/tutorials/5191-graphics-tutorial.html ?

    There is already a chapter on 'Drawing on a scaled image' with an example program, not directly linked to GPS yet.

    This exists in the http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/share-your-creations/3674-scaled-maps.html program.

    There will come an update of the Graphics Tutorial with a 'GPS Graphics' chapter in the near future.

    Best regards.

    :) Hi Klaus and Sarah Ward.

    Klaus,

    Thats what is missing...

    Your Statement: There will come an update of the Graphics Tutorial with a 'GPS Graphics' chapter in the near future.

    There are alot off Tutorials on this Site. and I agree that an Updated Graphics Tutorial with a 'GPS Graphics' chapter in the near future is due. Maybe a 'How to Bind a GPS to said Graphics' besides other things also, would help!?

    this sounds very promising. :sign0060:

    I Myself and other Forum Members? are very interested in such. It will be the only thing I will be envolved with in the near Future. That, and of cource Dbase.

    Best regards

    William
