CTAN up­date: getmap

Date: Oc­to­ber 12, 2014 8:30:34 PM CEST
Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted an up­date to the getmap pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.8 Li­cense type: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Down­load OpenStreetMap maps for use in doc­u­ments. An­nounce­ment text:
he goal of this pack­age is the sim­plest pos­si­ble pro­vi­sion of map im­ages (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View are sup­ported). In the sim­plest case, the spec­i­fi­ca­tion of an ad­dress is suf­fi­cient. The pack­age loads the map us­ing the \write18 fea­ture, which you must ac­ti­vate to use this pack­age. The im­age will be down­loaded by an ex­ter­nal Lua script. You can use this script also from the com­mand line. Li­cense: LPPL Changes in v1.8: - added sup­port for long routes by the gp­s2gps mode (getmapdl.lua) Long routes might be de­fined by sev­eral thou­sands of way points. En­cod­ing these into a en­coded poly­line would hugely ex­ceed the URL length limit of 2048 bytes. The gp­s2gps mode al­lows you to re­duce the num­ber of gps co­or­di­nates based on a given bound. - added multi route sup­port for gp­s2epl mode - up­dated doc­u­men­ta­tion
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/getmap More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/getmap We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Man­fred Lotz

getmap – Down­load OpenStreetMap maps for use in doc­u­ments

The pack­age pro­vides a sim­ple in­ter­face to OpenStreetMap, and to Google Maps “map im­ages”. In the sim­plest case, it is suf­fi­cient to spec­ify the ad­dress you need (if you don’t, the pack­age will use its own de­fault).

The pack­age loads the map im­age us­ing an ex­ter­nal lua script (in­voked via \write 18: must be run­ning with \write 18 en­abled).

The (“ex­ter­nal”) lua script may be used from the com­mand line; a bash ver­sion is pro­vided.
