Working with VentureFarther (Jon Turgeon) and MAP2CMAPCNET (John Thorn), also Bill Stockton (Chartaid) this new plugin overlays GeoTiff satellite
photos on top of the navigation
chart. The transparency can be adjusted, allowing easy comparison of features from the chart with the photo
v0.1 release is here:
Windows installer with the release.
Transparency works fully with OpenGL.
GeoTiffs can be downloaded from the VentureFarther website (www.venturefarther.com
). Set the 'KAP/GeO' switch to 'GEO'. They can also be made from satellite
kaps using MAP2CMAPCNET (convert to GeoTiff (mercator lat/lon)). There are probably other sources. Please let us know of those that work
Massive help to develop this plugin came from WeatherFax_pi (Sean D'Epagnier) and Bill Stockton (Chartaid).
Comments and bug reports always appreciated.
