I've been having a look at the GPX issues here. I don't see any method of attaching files or photos directly to waypoints etc. as mentioned by Happy Seagull. Could somebody point me to the thread please?
Happy Seagull what are you referring to as Marks? Waypoints? I don't see much in the route
manager for adding information.
The map features in Ozi that I was referring to would be fairly simple to extract from the .map files as they are just in there as CSV text so could be extracted and reformatted with a script or in a spread sheet and existing work could be ported across one way or another.
Perhaps features and comments from a .map file could be converted to gpx and imported as a layer(s). I have a lot of features for some areas though, several hundred.
I still see the importing and calibration of image files as an issue though. I know that there has been work done in Windows to produce Kap files from images
with calibration data but it is such a long winded process. I don't know if there is a solution out there to directly convert Ozi map files to .kap or another format that openCPN
can read? Or to graphically import
and calibrate images
within a single
application. Additionally the solutions that I have read about don't seem to handle odd shaped images, they all seem to assume rectangles. OK for most cases admittedly.
Downloaded the latest version of 2.4 and it now behaves well enough that I can work with it, the tool bar stays on the screen
more or less, it does occasionally reorient itself without reorienting the icons though .. not to handy.
I haven't looked into it in much detail yet but I don't see any options to do anything with the data recorded by VDR, there is a recored and a play button but no data export or anything like that. ....... just checked something, the Ozi track files (.plt) that I have been playing with have depth
information (it's in as altitude) and this is correctly extracted by gpsbable and is in the .GPX files but this doesn't show in the tack files in OpenCPN. Grrrr i need depth. Anybody know if the future depth logging will use the altitude element?
