MAPC2MAPC
« on: June 03, 2011, 16:17:51 »
The newest version of MAPC2MAPC has an option to create RMAPS/sqlite.db atlas maps which work in Locus. I took a regular aerial (with a world file) from my work's data library and converted it to sqlite format and loaded it easily into Locus. So, this means we're no longer required to use online map sources. You can even use maps that don't have a world file or some form of "geo-calibration" and calibrate it. This is perfect! I have some really high quality aerial photos that I can now use instead of being limited to Google, Bing, etc.

I don't know all the ins-outs of the MAPC2MAPC since I just downloaded it today, but the stuff I did worked very easily. The only downside may be is that it's shareware ($15 US), so if you don't pay/register, the output files will have random "X's" placed all over the images. But, for me, the cost is worth it.

Cheers!
