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

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.
