- Sorting of index key entries fixed for the documentation. - User messages for failed Python script calls are changed from warnings to errors to fail fast and to provide more information and hints about possible reasons. - New general marker option '/mermap/marker/generic' with corresponding macros '\mrcmarkergeneric}' and '\l_mermap_marker_generic_tl'. Also, the marker uuid is made expl3 accessible as '\l_mermap_marker_uuid_tl'. - New hyper marker options '/mermap/marker/url', '/mermap/marker/link', '/mermap/marker/use urls', '/mermap/marker/ignore urls', '/mermap/marker/use links','/mermap/marker/ignore links'.

mercatormap – Spherical Mercator coordinate systems and Web Mercator tile integration

This package extends TikZ with tools to create map graphics.

The provided coordinate system relies on the Web Mercator projection used on the Web by OpenStreetMap and others.

The package supports the seamless integration of graphics from public map tile servers by a Python script. Also, common map elements like markers, geodetic networks, bar scales, routes, orthodrome pieces, and more are part of the package.
