New Map Warper

I’d like to announce the release of the new Map Warper. It’s an online map rectifier, based on Rails, and using GDAL, OpenLayers, with OpenStreetMap in mind.

It has some new bells and whistles you may like.

  • Search for maps.
  • Users & “MyMaps”.
  • Image cropping.
  • Calculation of RMS errors.
  • Export in different formats.
  • Activity feeds.

I’ve imported all the previous maps so if you used the previous app on wrp.geothings.net, don’t worry, your maps and WMS will still work. If you want to work on them some more, then you may need to warp them again.

You don’t have to make an account to use it, but if you do, you get to track your maps, activities and shortly, be able to make your maps “private”.

Couple of caveats, it will resize oversize images (over 1500×1500)  to make processing quicker and as before, it’s beta so there may be a few kinks but they should be ironed out quickly, so please tell me of them, ta.

It is still open source and is available at:  http://svn2.geothings.net/mapwarper/ or a slightly older snapshot on github if you would like to grab a copy.

    • Yes! That’s exactly what I’m going to be doing. One whole one for all the maps initially for public consumption, and zipped ones for each individual map too.
