Touchscreen based Data editor

Mumpot was a gtk mapping application written by Andreas Kemnade with simple editing features mainly (but not only) for use with mobile devices, tested on a GPE installation on an ipaq2200 and on the openmoko platform.


  • displaying of tiled map (especially for those from osm)
  • planed routes can be marked (does not use the osm vector data for this), loaded and saved.
  • with osm vector data, also shortest path searches can be done
  • maps can be printed at some fixed scales.
  • osm vector data can be loaded from a file and saved.
  • a primitive tag editor, so you can add a missing street name on the move
  • can connect to a gps which provides NMEA-Data (using a TCP connection (to gpsd), a bluetooth rfcomm connection, or a serial device (which may also be a bluetooth rfcomm device))
  • adding new ways by clicking a button at the beginning of the way and the end of the way, while travelling the way, you can select the highway class, of course this is only advisable when gps connections are good.
  • deleting existing ways and nodes, adding new ways (non-live)
  • inserting POIs
  • OSM API 0.6 support
