CTAN update: mercatormap

Date: August 7, 2020 7:32:26 PM CEST
Thomas F. Sturm submitted an update to the mercatormap package. Version number: 1.02 2020-08-06 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Spherical Mercator coordinate systems and Web Mercator tile integration Announcement text:
- New options '/mermap/supply/area from marker input' and '/mermap/supply/add area from marker input' which allow to fit a map to a given external list of marker positions. - New option '/mermap/fail on missing resource' to control compilation behavior for missing resource files. - Openrouteservice has discontinued mapsurfer tiles since June 2020. Therefore, '/mermap/supply/source=openrouteservice mapsurfer' is deprecated now. It is not documented any more, but for some time it is still available for old documents with cached map tiles. - (#2) New marker option '/mermap/marker/distance' with corresponding macro '\mrcmarkerdistance'.

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.
