Version 2.2.1 now live.

By coincidence my parents were married in Kewstoke Church in 1940. Small world!

There is a program for downloading British OS maps at http://www.akadamia.co.uk/html/downloads.html

This creates an image and a .mcd calibration file. MAPC2MAPC will open these and create a Trekbuddy set

Working well here, thanks.

I would like to be able to "Write Calibrations" in OS format without writing the map as TrekBuddy tiles. Is this possible?

Version 2.2.2 with Edit>Write OS Datum .MAP now available. The option is,of course, only available if the area of the map is in Britain.

On the home page of MAPC2MAPC (www.the-thorns.org.uk/mapping) I have added the facility to enter an Email address. If you do that, I will notify you of any changes.

Does your tool support JGW files?

It's the same format as TFW, only for jpegs.

http://www.cryer.co.uk/file-types/j/jgw.htm
http://www.cadforum.cz/cadforum_en/qaID.asp?tip=3515

If it doesn't support JGW, you should implement support, it should be trivial to implement it if you already support TFW. Smile

Yes, JGW and PGW (for PNG) are supported either with Latitude/Longitude or UTM

Noticing the discussion about MAC, I realised the MM1B field is not always set by MAPC2MAPC. This has been corrected in version 2.2.3 and a full set of Datums is now distributed with the program.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 03, 2010 6:49 pm    Post subject: Generate OS .map files from MOBAC TB atlas .map files? Reply with quote

I have an atlas generated by MOBAC with several .map files which reference "set" sub-directories containing many tiles. I want to recalibrate those .map files to OS format.

When I open any MOBAC-generated .map file from the atlas in MAPC2MAPC I get the message "Identify image file associated with GoogleEarth 14". If I then point to the first file in the set sub-directory (t_0_0.png) I get the messages "Image width=256 input file width=5376 ... using image width" and "Image height=256 input file height=5888 ... using image height".

I can select Edit > Write OS datum map, and MAPC2MAPC writes a .map file called t_0_0OS.map. I then delete the original map file from the atlas and save the atlas to my phone as normal.

If I try to use this map file in Trekbuddy, I get the message "...Tileset not found:file:.../t_0_0OS.set"

Is there any way to directly recalibrate the .map file generated by MOBAC to an OS format?

Without doing some coding, the following should work:

1. create an image 't.png' the size of the original map (just blank, using Photoshop or GimP)
2. run MAPC2MAPC and point it to this blank image
3. Write the OS map 'tOS.map'
4. Rename this to 't.map' (having deleted / renamed the original)

If you send me a .map file, I'll try it
