generation of pixel map
The generation of pixel map with tiles@home seems not to work anymore. It needs Perl to run several perl scripts. On Windows XP I did:
- I installed Activeperl
- Had to download and install the GD package manually, since the described method is not working anymore
- Downloaded taho.pl perl script
- Downloaded osm2ozf_20071006 package with convert_osm2mif.pl and osm2ozi_tah.pl perl scripts.
- Starting osm2ozi_tah.pl starts fetching tiles, but each single tile is just one color - light blue or white.
Can this be fixed? (Unfortunately I do not know Perl) --Jibber
- You need normally only the taho.pl script from the svn. Could you please try a newer version? --waschbaer 10:30, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
This script uses wrong projection for the tiles: mercator on WGS84 ellipsoid, instead of mercator on sphere with R=a=6378137 m --Usm78 22:39, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
- Im no so familar with this kind of things. What have to be changed in the calobration file? --waschbaer 10:30, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Feature Request: Turbo GPS calibration maps?
Hello could someone add a output of files in the format:
The format is very simple:
- x1,y1, left top corner
- x2,y2, right bottom corner
I changed the script. Please try the new svn-version --waschbaer 18:58, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Excellent it's working fine connecting my Kosmos tileserv because the Tiles@Home has problems at the moment. See here: TurboGPS#Here_the_maps_in_the_Turbo_GPS_Application_even_the_Cyclemap --Zapfen 21:52, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
New Feature Request: TurboGPS : overlapping Maps
Again a feature request for the Turbo GPS Mobile application, the calibration works perfectly. The only thing left to fully support the TurboGPS is that the maps should overlaps each other in x and y direction. The best result would be the overlapping of env. 1 tile (256px). --Zapfen 14:55, 26 September 2008 (UTC) I would take a little bit time. Sorry --waschbaer 21:36, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
use osm map
is there a way to import in oziexplorerCe osm raster map already calibrate in an easy way ? At this time use nasa map file. I write an details tutorial about use this file after read an article for other guy 
Southern Hemisphere bug?
I generated map files with this command:
taho.pl -coord="12,-43.63,172.635" -tilesource="http://c.andy.sandbox.cloudmade.com/tiles/cycle" -ext=jpg -size=3
The generated map file contains
MMPLL,1, 172.6171875, 43.5803257174107 MMPLL,2, 172.6611328125, 43.5803257174107 MMPLL,3, 172.6611328125, 43.61215160545 MMPLL,4, 172.6171875, 43.61215160545
All the 43.x should be -43.x . --EliotB 07:45, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
P.S. Please s/glow/glue s/glowed/glued
Fix: In template: MMPLL,1, --w--, --n-- In code: $Data =~ s/--w--/$W/g; etc.
I.e. for MMPLL need to use the signed values, not the abs values.
Sources for use of Perl with Windows
I am not very familiar with Perl Package Manager, but it seems, that the given name and location do not work anymore. Working solution is name=uwinnipeg and location=http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/, which I get when select uwinnipeg-entry via "Suggested"-List. Does anyone know more? --Robart 18:54, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
This wiki page requires a total rewrite, preferably by somebody who speaks english
I got as far as rewriting the top paragraph, so that it actually explains in broad terms what the software is (always a good idea for the top paragraph no?) But even that took me a while. The website itslef (http://www.oziexplorer.com/ ) isn't very clear about what it is. I certainly don't know or care enough about this software to tackle the rest of the page, which is a total mess.

All you need to know?
Most of the stuff here seems outdated and is difficult to follow. Suggest deleting most of it. I have added a general description with some methods of getting OSM data into and out of OziExplorer based on my experience.
