NZ Topo maps as online source?

Post  farr6000 on Sun Jul 10, 2011 2:07 am

Hi Orux

Is it possible to add New Zealand topo maps to the online map sources? I am able to generate maps from this source for OruxMaps using MOBAC but a direct link in OruxMaps would be very useful. I think MOBAC uses www.nztopomaps.com.

Thanks

Hi Orux

The NZtopomaps site appears to be non functional at present but it normally displays the NZ topo map tiles superimposed as a layer on the google map. The MOBAC software still generates map files for OruxMaps with NZ topo tiles, I am not sure how they get them but the original source is Land Information New Zealand http://www.linz.govt.nz/ All LINZ maps are freely available as are the nautical charts for NZ and much of the SW pacific.

Hi Orux

The latest stable version 1.9 beta 6 of MOBAC works. In map sources the NZ topomaps appear to be in mp-region_oceania.jar. I dont have an IDE to open the .jar file butI can see the line mobac/mapsources/mappacks/region_oceania/NzTopoMaps.classPK by using a text editor. I can send this but cant attach a file in the forum.

Regards
John

Updated

This the solution. Many thanks to Orux.

Enter the following in onlinemapsources.xml between <onlinemapsources> and <\onlinemapsources>

<onlinemapsource uid="100">
<name>NZ Topo</name>
<url><![CDATA[http://nz1.nztopomaps.com/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}.png]]></url>
<minzoom>6</minzoom>
<maxzoom>15</maxzoom>
<projection>MERCATORESFERICA</projection>
<servers></servers>
<httpparam name=""></httpparam>
<xop></xop>
<yop>0</yop>
<zop></zop>
<qop></qop>
</onlinemapsource>


It works very well and I use it all the time. The server can sometimes be a bit slow but seems to get there in the end. There are a couple of other apps that use this map source but OruxMaps seems to work the best.

Perhaps this could be included in the next build of OruxMaps?

Cheers
John
