Plugin interface for using different map sources?

Post  alteks on Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:15 am

Hello Orux,

There are many online map sources, and many use tile URLs which are not exactly like Google's. So, currently it is not possible to use them with onlinemapsources.xml. You have already made a FANTASTIC application, and coding coordinate transformations and special HTTP headers for any map from Armenia to Zimbabwe might be not the thing you prefer doing yourself Smile

How would you like an idea to provide instead some interface for "orux maps plugins"? Meaning, separate Android applications, which enable additional map sources. Then the one who wants to use some local map service writes the plugin and uploads it to the Android market. I myself would like to use my local maps - might think on writing such plugin at some point...
