The first version was based on webkit or gtkmozembed.
The second version is based on osm-gps-map
I tried to convert osm-gps-map to champlain as it is the library used by gnome. I could do only 30 to 40 percent of what is possible with osmgpsmap. We can't use the print function with cairo. So I left libchamplain until it will be usable.
Poligons on maps
As it has been discussed on the users list, it could be useful to have the possibility to display polygons on the map.
It's easy to do with osmgpsmap. We need only a layer for that.
I see two problems for this :
What format to use :
They are the formats used by google. The kmz is a compressed kml : OGC kml standard
On ubuntu there is already a python package for this :
python-kml - Library to manipulate KML 2.2 OGC standard files - Python extension
This is the format used by the OGC.
No python package to read gml files.
Perhaps it would be useful to be able to open every types of file. The first one would be the kml.
Use the media list in the place record ?
- mime type = kml
- For a place, if we have one or more medias of type kml, we can display them.
