After some time I'm back and wanted to host an NZ Top server again. The NZ Topo service now has far more map types available to order.

So my question is, what is the specification for an online map server. Can you recommend some open source software and what projections do I need?

I did do just that but I believe there is a problem with execution order. If I set the Transverse Mercator projection manually then load a geotiff it erases my setting and I have to do it again. Then the calculated extents are quite incorrect (and they appear to be differently incorrect in the batch converter too). If I change the extents in the converter page then the resultant map is correct as viewed in grid settings. Of course I cannot do this in batch mode.

Additionally the main converter screen will not accept the same geotiff as the source image whereas the batch converter doesn't seem to care. I have to provide a png or jpg instead. See the image here...

I really want to convert all the NZ maps and host them for your users. For that I also need to know exactly how they should be hosted.

Hi, tazzydemon;

how to fill OruxMapsDesktop form:

1.-select the 'tiff' file with 'Calibration file' button.
2.-if all go right, the image file field should be automatically filled.
3.-introduce datum and projection.
4.-select destination directory.
5.-calibrate.

Use this last compilation (2.0.1beta) because there was a bug reading the grid coordinates (a + instead a - ).

please, try with your maps (I want to try, but http://www.linz.govt.nz/ is too slow, 5 hours for a 130mb file!).

Hi,

The best solution is a google/osm like tile system, using mercator maps.

I am not sure, but I think http://mapserver.org should work.

If I was to build a server, how would I add it to my local list for testing?
