    Insert image without setting multiple anchors

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

     I'm trying to find a way to insert an image at the 0,0 coordinates and without destroying the aspect ratio of the image.

    Is there an easy way to do that instead of me using lots of time figuring out the right place to set the anchors?

    Dark Space Around Tiles

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    Is it possible to make everything outside of our custom tiles blank/dark space? So that you cannot see the map underneath. I am trying to create a fictional world with the tiles and I feel like seeing the real earth below would break some of the illusion.

    maptiler command line overwrite file

    Sudip Barman · 2 · Last reply by Sudip Barman

    Hello All,

    I am facing one issue to tiling multiple files into a single folder. If I execute maptiler to create tiles in the folder (Z\X\Y.ext) it is creating very first time, but if I want to tiles another file to the same location it is saying "Please choose an empty directory for the map tiles.". I like to tiling multiple files into the same location.    Command I am executing: maptiler -o <Destination Folder> <Source File1> -srs EPSG:27700 -gcp .... -gcp .... -gcp ....  -cutline_wkt "MULTIPOLYGON( ..... ...)  -order 1   Any help really appreciated.    Thanks in advance.  Barman

    Output positioning difference between Google Maps & Open Street Map

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    I was wondering why it is when I render files with the visual georeferencer (e.g. using google maps to assign) and then deciding later to also use it within open street map that the output has a significant difference. This is very obvious when I work with floorplans. While it's a perfect overlay then on google maps, it is several meters off on osm.

     

    I was wondering if the projections are different, but it seems they both use the same 2D projection ("EPSG:3857"). 

     

    Does anybody have the same issue and solved it in a way that it's not

    Can I change input file and retain existing geo-reference?

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    I visually reference a map (PNG) file of a certain size.

     

    Later, I make some small change or addition to the map PNG file (i.e. add a warning at some point).  I just want to re-generate my mbtile file with the new PNG without re-referencing the map.  How do I do this?

    KML- or KMZ-files upload in Google My Maps

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    I work with the free version of MapTiler and for my own website (in progress) about the history of my birthplace I would like to show own maps directly into Google My Maps.

    I can show the KML-file into Google Earth, but in no way I manage to import the KML-file into My Maps. It shows: "A network link in the KML file is not accessible or does not have a KML format." Does anyone have a suggestion? I tried KML- as well as KMZ-files.

    Custom Tile Server for Google Maps in Autoflight Logic

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    I am using Autoflight Logic's Autopilot iOS app to fly my DJI Mavic drone. When flying the drone, Google Map satellite imagery is used to show the location of the operator and aircraft. One of the options in the app is to use a "Custom Tile Server" to replace the Google Map imagery with your own. An area where I would like to do some precision flying through hiking trails has very old imagery from Google Maps. I am able to photograph my own aerial view of the area (as one large image file) and would like to use the "Custom Tile

    I'm having issues with TileServer. I extracted the zip file and loaded an mbtiles file.

     Fatal error: Class 'PDO' not found in tileserver.php on line 295

     Here is line 295

    $this->db = new PDO('sqlite:' . $tileset, '', '', array(PDO::ATTR_PERSISTENT => true));

     I've tried a few different folders but I get the same issue.

     Any tips on resolving this?

    How do you delete an overlay and how to save the current opacity?

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    The google maps api doesn't seem to have any way to remove an overlay once one is added. Say i want to be able to allow the user to use one of several different overlays or switch between them. In this case, it is necessary to delete one and then add a new one. Setting the opacity to zero is not a good idea; it seems this would use up a lot of memory. Also, how do you save the current opacity value so that when you can use it as the default later? Being able to delete an overlay

    Licence expired during render

    I have purchase MapTiler Desktop PRO for 30 day license. Instantly I start rendering a very large image in the ecw file (approx 30GB++) and it seems to take a very long time to complete rendering. My question, what should I do if the license expires during rendering? Will it affect my project?

    Select render area

    I have 100km2 tiff image. I want to render only some part of it. Anyway, I can get Maptiler to render a specific area in the image?

     

    Cropping geotiff in photoshop doesn't work, as it destroys georeferencing.

    How to zoom/change scale

    Jacob Christensen · 2 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    Hi 

    How can zoom/change the scale of the MapTiler desktop client window? The text and visuals are very small and it gets better when changing the scaling settings in Windows, but I do not want to have the rest of my programs become larger. Is there a zoom/scale setting somewhere?

    GDAL Version >2.0

    Jiri Komarek · 1 · Last reply by Jiri Komarek

    Does anyone know if I can run the mapTiler Desktop with later versions of GDAL?  I am on Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS using GDAL 2.2.2 and the demo version I am trying to evaluate insists on pre 2.0 GDAL. Of course, I can run the mapTiler Engine in a docker, but I can't evaluate the Desktop UI.   I had a quick search here but couldn't find anything.

    There are network adapters on the system that are disabled and Map Tiler Desktop couldn't read their hardware properties.

    I've just downloaded and update MapTiler Desktop 10.0 but when I launch it I got the free version and if I try to activate it with my Start/Plus license key I got the following error: "There are network adapters on the system that are disabled and Map Tiler Desktop couldn't read their hardware poperties. Enable the network adapters and Map Tiler Desktop will be able to remember the adapters even itf the adapters are disabled in the future."

    I checked the adapters (in device manager - Windows 10 OS) and all of them are enabled.
