Would it be possible to add UK OS maps support? Either online or offline using their free OS VectorMap™ District maps here

Hi,

Offline OS maps can be added very easily by using by using Mobile Atlas Creator (instructions on Oruxmaps site). These maps are available in 1:25k and 1:50k scales, the same as the printed ones. Choose "Multimap OS UK" or "Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps (UK)" as your map source in MOBAC.

At the moment the 1:10k "Street View" maps are not available in MOBAC but they do seem to work in the Map Evaluator program (for developing new sources for MOBAC) using data from the http://os.openstreetmap.org/ website so it might be possible to get them added to MOBAC at a later date.

Since writing the previous paragraph, I've just managed to add the Great Britain 1:10000 Street View source manually to my MOBAC installation by adding the following lines to my settings.xml file and restarting MOBAC:


<customMapSources>
<customMapSource>
<name>Custom OS 10k StreetView</name>
<minZoom>6</minZoom>
<maxZoom>17</maxZoom>
<tileType>png</tileType>
<tileUpdate>None</tileUpdate>
<url>http://os.openstreetmap.org/sv/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}.png</url>
<backgroundColor>#000000</backgroundColor>
</customMapSource>
</customMapSources>



Could these maps be added to the online maps option for Oruxmaps?

Regards,

Alastair
