To the gps mapping types.

I have recently stumbled on a nifty program (thanks to OziExplorer contacts) which automatically calibrates GoogleEarth maps created by users and allows placement into your designated Windows Explorer folder/s.

It is far quicker and more elegant than the normal point calib. process.

I suspect this program is not well known as when I did a search on this site for the past 2 years I got no results.

It can be found at http://aeguerre.free.fr/Public/Windows/NoniMapView/EN/

If there are others using this facility I'd be interested in experiences.

Cheers.

Some versions of OZI have problems with the Noni generated map files as the .map file only has four calibration points. If you open the .map file as a text file you'll find lines beginning with point01 to point 04, not the usual point01 to point30 that ozi uses.

Later versions of OZI may work OK I think.

Thks Lex.

I am using an old version of Ozi which I upgraded to current version (free) from the Ozi site. It's working flawlessly with that.

Cheers.

I use it to download google road maps at zoom level 13 and one degree squares or level 14 at 1/2 degree squares. Works well.

Have to load java with xms memory parameters to give it enough memory to handle that size file however. This is the command line I use to run it.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\java.exe -Xms256m -Xmx256m -jar "C:\Program Files\nonimapview\NoniMapViewV0.22.jar"

Sometimes after loading a few large files I get a memory message. Close Noni and restart it and it's OK again.

You can also run multiple copies and do concurrent downloads depending on how fast you internet is and power of your pc etc.

Another point. Some of the other download programs created multiple calibration points within the map. This made the maps more accurate than the Noni which only use four points, each corner, meaning that large areas may have some distortion evident.

I haven't found this to be a problem.

Also from the OZICE forum

"i have downloadsome maps using Noni and they work fine but whilst I am
driving they will not scroll onto the next map, If I search for maps around
the curser it finds them, no problem."

In the.map file there is a parameter:

MM0,No

Open the .map file in Notepad or another text editor and change it into:

MM0,Yes

Save the .map file.

A much better program than Noni is at

Here

The help file unfortunately is in Russian but I am arranging some translation.

It allows use of several different satellites and much larger downloads. It produces .MAP files that work OK with Ozi Explorer. (Even the Russians know about this great program)
