OkMap – Free GPS and Mapping Software
OkMap is GPS and mapping software which allows you to work on your computer screen with digital maps that you have either bought or scanned. It can also import vectorial data from the most common formats and DEM data relevant to height informations.
It can import maps in more than 30 formats, including GFW, JGW, PGW, TFW, BPW (World file); ECW (Earth Resource Mapping); GeoTiff; MAP (OziExplorer); IMP (CompeGps); GMI (GpsTuner); SHP, DBF (Esri shape file) and DCW (Digital Chart of World), along with many image formats. And it can interface directly with Google Earth and Google Maps. With Google Earth you can view your paths and your maps also in 3D.
Wherever the maps come from, you can then work with them to create waypoints, routes, tracks and more. These can then be uploaded to your GPS device, or you can alternatively download information from your GPS and display it on the maps. These map additions can be static, so for instance you might create a list of photos which are displayed on a map, so you can see exactly where they’re taking.
If you run the program on a laptop with a connected GPS, say, then you can plot your position on a map in real time, and send this information constantly to a remote computer. So a group of people, all equipped with OkMap, laptop and GPS, could see everyone’s position updated in real time.
Through these maps, you can organize your paths by creating waypoints, routes and tracks on your Computer Monitor, and upload this data to your GPS. To make it easier, OkMap provides you also with autorouting and geocoding functions.
By connecting a GPS to your laptop, you can plot your position on maps in real-time. If you are connected to the network you can constantly send your position to a remote computer, or receive the position of your companions on your computer and display the related tracks on maps in real time.
OkMap include a feature to generate automatically compatible “Garmin Custom Maps” (kmz format). This feature includes map tiling from and to different image file formats (including ECW map format). It’s possible select KML extensions 2.2 (if GPS supports them), the JPEG quality, the image resizing, the KML transparency, the draw order, and so on. You can also select the tiles to generate in output.
