User defined grids

Post  sai on Fri May 28, 2010 8:29 pm

A really great feature would be a user UTM grid like many GPSs have (Garmin etc).

It should allow you to specify at least a longitude origin, scale, false easting and false northing.

This would allow many users of grids based on the WGS-84 datum to easily create their own local grids.

For example, it would allow me to display New Zealand Map Grid coordinates, which we use for search and rescue applications and so on here in New Zealand. For many users, if they can't use the official local grids, the software just cannot be used. This feature would be a relatively simple way to quickly support a lot of global grid systems and make the software usable for a wide range of users that currently can't use it.

I will work with this in next versions,

Hi;

If the map is calibrated with this grid/datum, you can use/display this datum & grid coordinates with OruxMaps.

But If you want to see these coordinates using another map (created with MOBAC, online maps like google maps,...) then still not possible.

Thanks for the reply.

Nope the map is fine, I can calibrate any way I want... my problem is i would like to insert "gauss boaga" waypoints without have to convert them.
