hi -- just wanted to thank the gpsbabel project once again for
the GPX library that made a lot of what i've done with RoadMap
possible. GPX import/export, and internal route/track/waypoint
management became (almost :-) trivial using code borrowed from
i think i may have mentioned this debt some time ago, but since
we just did a big release of RoadMap, and since there are folks
here that might be interested in this sort of thing, i thought
i'd say it again.
what follows is basically the news announcement i put on
sourceforge, for those that don't know what i'm talking about.
> RoadMap 1.1.0 has been released.
> The RoadMap project is pleased to announce RoadMap 1.1.0, the
> first major public release of RoadMap in almost two years.
> RoadMap is a GPS-enabled map browser and navigation aid. Full
> support is provided for pre-planned routes, track recording,
> and waypoint (point-of-interest) storage, with import and
> export in the open GPX format.
> RoadMap primarily displays American and Canadian roadmaps
> (others can be added as data becomes available). Maps are
> stored in a relatively compact and efficient format --
> detailed maps for the entire USA take approximately 3.5GB.
> RoadMap provides for on-screen road labeling, 2D and pseudo-3D
> map views, position lookup by street address or intersection,
> and voice output. RoadMap's on-screen UI is very flexible and
> highly configurable.
> RoadMap can be built using GTK2 (with optional AGG support for
> anti-aliasing), GTK, GPE, QT4, QT3, and WinCE (currently
> More complete project status can be found here
> http://roadmap.sourceforge.net/status.html and the project
> home page is here: http://roadmap.sourceforge.net
