Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC)

Postby BluNoze » 07 Feb 2011, 23:49

MOBAC is used by many other mapping apps on mobile devices such as Android and Blackberry:

http://mobac.dnsalias.org/

Are there any formats we could use to creat maps for TTMAPS, or if not, would it possible for a future version of TTMAPS to support one of the currently supported MOBAC outputs?

Regards,

Rob.

Hi,
I have asked the MOBAC author to add support for the ECW format. Read the full story at :
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=de ... id=1105497

But I think it is easy to convert the maps created by MOBAC with "CreateECW", that you can download at http://famille.viollet.free.fr/CreateECW.exe .
This program can convert OziExplorer maps to ECW. The name of the projection in ttMaps is WGS84/MRSPHERIC .

If you have any problem, please ask for help.

Looks like MOBAC distribution has been suspended because of the excessive load it was causing on some of the map sources. :cry:
The author is actively looking for solutions to improve the current situation, before the next MOBAC release will be performed.

Hi,

To create ECW files with MOBAC, please follow this procedure :
- Select the PNG+PGW format in MOBAC ;
- Create the atlas ;
- Convert the PNG file with this command :

Code: Select all
gdal_translate -of ECW -co DATUM=WGS84 -co PROJ=MRSPHERIC -co LARGE_OK=YES -co TARGET=90 map.png map.ecw
