Using local map tiles

jki's picture

Here http://pastebin.com/JkFiKFtK is a simple patch to use locally stored TMS map tiles from gdal2tiles.pl in place of osm cloudmade.

It's not the greatest invention ever:
- tile path is not user configurable
- it does not fall back to OSM when a local tile is missing, which in my case is most of the time
- it replaces cloudmade (chose that one as it didn't seem to work and adding a new one would have been more work)
- it doesn't change the map name in menu

But it works for me.

To use OSM tiles instead of tiles from gdal2tiles.pl, one would remove the y coordinate flip line.

I had some problems building BT747_2.X.1968M_full.zip on Eclipse Juno under Ubuntu, this is what helped:

- file->new-project->java project from existing ant buildfile (build.xml), select build.j2seapp
- project->properties->java build path->add external JARs from oracle's javamail-1.4.5
- the same for /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.26/jre/lib/jsse.jar (for javax.net ssl)
- in BT747.java, comment out public class BT747 extends bt747.waba_view.AppBT747 { ... } (I was stuck with "bt747.waba_view cannot be resolved to a type")

But how do I get dist/BT747_j2se.jar? Always running from Eclipse is not quite ideal :)

Also, on a quick glance I couldn't find a way to configure GPS track color on the UI. Blue is not ideal on my tileset (I tried chancing the good & bad colors but they had no effect on UI).
