Here is an application for displaying scaled maps. The project began already in this thread http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/chit-chat/3553-mapping.html#post20687 , but ceasar and myself find that it's right place is here. What can be done: - Different maps can be loaded. - The maps can be scaled, and the scaling saved (two points only yet). - Drawings can be made onto the maps on 3 different layers: - polylines with different colors, line widths - circles with radius in meters, different colors, line widths, filled or empty - texts with different colors, font sizes, font styles, with or without background color - bitmaps, with or without background color, 4 bitmaps are predefined, these can be deleted and others loaded. - Select any element of the drawing and modify, or delete it. To change the position of an element, click on it, move it and release, or change the coordinates. - New points can be added to polylines. - Save and load drawings. The saved data is just the geometry of the drawing elements, with a reference to the map. To load drawings, the program shows only those belonging to the map. - Calculate the length of a polyline - 2 maps of Cape Town are included, one with a km scaling and the other one with long, lat in degrees, sources Google Maps and Google Earth. What can not be done yet: - Scaling with 3 points - Undo and redo What is still missing: - no GPS support The help file is here. www.basic4ppc.com/files/ScaledMapHelpE.zip It contains the help file itself and the map I used to create this help file. I would be pleased to have some feedback of what is missing, improvement suggestions and bug reports. Best regards. EDIT: 2009.11.21 Version 2.0 bug renoval and some minor changes. EDIT: 2011.02.27 Version 3.0 with a beginning of GPS support not really tested. Leave it as it is.
