Openflightmaps - is it possible to use from Locus?
« on: July 05, 2018, 11:30:28 »
Hi,

do any of you use Locus with openflightmaps? I was curious if it would work with Locus and if so, then how.
The provider offers data as EPSG3857 tiles, mapbox tiles and geotiff, besides some -for me- totally unknown AIXM LH, ARINC424, OPENAIR, CUP formats.

Do you have info about this?

Thanks,
Bálint

Hello Balint
OPENAIR .txt files can be used with locus
copy .txt file to locus/mapithems
http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:items

use Mapc2Mapc to convert geotiff to locus supported format

OpenAir format is not perfect and I can imagine improvements there, by my colleagues force me to stick more and more with hike & bike usage of Locus Map, so ... :). Anyway for some basic usage and overview of airSpaces, good enough.
