I have Terrain Navigator (New England maps) on my computer. I cannot find any files that look like the typical tile files used by aprsisce. None of the usual suspect file extensions.

I suspect that program uses database or even vector images (the USGS topos have been converted to vector files by some producers).

My experience is this: I sent three email message requests to the specified yahoogroups.com email address, two from my own domain using a Comcast SMTP server and one from gmail.com, and nothing happened. So I created a yahoo.com address here on Yahoo and sent my request using it ... and received my passcode from Steve within a few minutes. Draw your own conclusions. / John / KS6M

I don’t see the number of tiles or the space they require to be much of an issue these days unless you need terrabytes of data. With the advent of cheap large capacity drives you can fit a lot of tiles. Even the uSD cards hold a lot and they are getting cheaper every day. It would be easy to set up an uSD for Montana and another for Idaho. For my tablet, I run APRSIS32 on a 64GB microSD card. It works very well and I have several tile sets.

 

For APRSIS32:

One way to limit the numbers of tiles downloaded is to limit the maximum zoom level for a tile set. You can even set to minimum but there is little space or quantity advantages. Quite a few tile sets only have tiles to level 15 or 16. If you set to the limit to that number it won’t try to download the next level all the time and when you zoom in, the lower level zoom will be used. If you look closely at the various level of tiles it becomes apparent the same scan was used for several level. For instance, for USGS a 7.5min map was scanned and then the scan was cut up into appropriate zoom levels. There is no new data, just a larger or small view of the data. For OSM tiles, there is new data at some of the very highest zooms. But I find while travelling I don’t need to see house shapes and swimming pools. I can avoid the highest levels in OSM too. I do find level 15 to be about the maximum I need as it is the level where street names are added. Aerials are a different story. For those I tend to want to higher zoom at least when using ArcGIS World Imagery: their level 18 is high resolution. They don’t have higher than 18 though.

 

There is also a common misconception that every tile at every zoom level and for the whole area is required. That is rarely true. Of course I don’t know your particular travel plans but it is unlikely they include every square mile and much of that may be just getting for one stopping point to another. By limiting your focus you may find there is a nice level that will please you. I used to travel between Arkansas and New Hampshire every few months. My total number of tiles and the space required never really added up to much.

 

One disadvantage of using a database for tiles is if the file is corrupted, you may lose access to all maps. In one application I looked at, I am pretty sure they managed two files. It looked like one file was used to point to a specific record within the second one. If either file is corrupted, then both are unusable. Not so with tiles since each is its own entity.

Try http://sandaysoft.com/downloads. Scroll down the page and click on "Cumulus 1.9.4. setup" You should probably also grab the installation guide and the readme.txt file.

Re: Maps

Rob Giuliano
 

If the map tiles follow the same configuration as Open Street Maps, there are 2 ways you can use them.  Unfortunately, I am no expert on either:
1. Create the correct directory structure on you device and copy all your existing files into it
   point the app to that directory structure and using a non-functional web site in the setup.
   NOTE:  you must manually update this directory structure to keep it up to date
2. Create your own map server for these tiles.
   I have no clue how to do this, but if you can create a server that does its owns updates
   the map tiles can be as up to date as the ones on your server.

I have done #1 (in sorts).  I have old map tiles from a server that is no longer active.  I have moved this map set's directory to several new installations and they are still available. So, APRSIS32 can be configured to continue to use them, but again, there will be no updates.

Hi Ed,

Ok, that software is not one I'm familiar with.  Quickly scanning what I could find by way of a user manual didn't seem to show how to set it up for exporting real-time data to the wxnow.txt file.  At least, a scan for "wxnow.txt" didn't get any hits.  But looking at the revision history did mention that file, so I expect it's possible, just not documented very well.

Since you have it actually running there, see if you can find some place where the software can be configured to drive that file.  It's a relatively common feature among many weather software packages, but the docs for this one are a bit old (they mention it's compatible with Windows 95, which I doubt).  Once that is working, we can look at configuring APRSISCE/32.

You don't specify what particular weather display software you're using, but the basic requirement for getting it to work with APRSISCE/32 is to have the weather software export its information into a file called "wxnow.txt".  See if you can search for an option in the software that talks about that file.

Then, within APRSISCE/32, create a Weather object, and point it to that file when you create it.  The APRSISCE/32 software will monitor that file, and post updates to the APRS-IS whenever its updated.

Hi Ed,

Ok, that software is not one I'm familiar with.  Quickly scanning what I could find by way of a user manual didn't seem to show how to set it up for exporting real-time data to the wxnow.txt file.  At least, a scan for "wxnow.txt" didn't get any hits.  But looking at the revision history did mention that file, so I expect it's possible, just not documented very well.

Since you have it actually running there, see if you can find some place where the software can be configured to drive that file.  It's a relatively common feature among many weather software packages, but the docs for this one are a bit old (they mention it's compatible with Windows 95, which I doubt).  Once that is working, we can look at configuring APRSISCE/32.

Hi Ed,

You don't specify what particular weather display software you're using, but the basic requirement for getting it to work with APRSISCE/32 is to have the weather software export its information into a file called "wxnow.txt".  See if you can search for an option in the software that talks about that file.

Then, within APRSISCE/32, create a Weather object, and point it to that file when you create it.  The APRSISCE/32 software will monitor that file, and post updates to the APRS-IS whenever its updated.

That's the high-level overview.  Let us know how you progress...  I just went through this recently, so good timing!

Any way to configure this program to access maps I already own from terrain navigator?? They are awesome high res maps and I have the rights to print and edit for personal use. So allowing aprsisce to access the file shouldn't be a legal issue.
Basically I spend 8 months a
Year traveling the western usa and even though it's a heap of data I need massive amounts of map tiles.
