I added some debug output at AmigaOS4, so if you experience problems starting up MUIMapparium on OS4 check the debug output (e.g. Sashimi) it should count from 1 to 26 on the bootup, check if any numbers missing and send me the result on one of the forums I’m usually on.

Search MUIMapparium Photos

Posted by ALB42 on 17. Mai 2018One Comment

Worked on the broken Search function, I guess I will publish this tomorrow, the new functions are not finished but without the search function the program is more or less useless. The new function is the list of Photo with EXIF GPS positions, as Mapparium also had. It can use Datatypes (need jpg Datatype of course) or the internal pascal JPG loaded, which seems to be slower most of the time, especially on big endian systems. The photos are grouped by date if you double click the date entry it try get all photo markers in sight, when clicking on a photo it shows it.

Attention MUIMapparium Search function

Currently the Search function is broken, because the service used for it changed to SSL only which is not supported by MUIMapparium at the moment.
I will work on this the next days, so wait for 0.7 to fix that.

and because there is an error in the source MUIMapparium will crash instead of printing the errorcode

The routing function is also affected by this of course.

Sorry.

Datatypes for all

Posted by ALB42 on 14. Mai 2018No Comments

I created the datatypes unit for AmigaOS4 and AROS and rewrote the ones for Amiga68k and MorphOS. OF course the aim is again to make them more or less compatible to each other. Of course also wrote a little test program and compiled for all systems which works nice.

DataTypes test for Amiga68k, MorphOS, AmigaOS4 and AROS

Now I have to learn how to actually use Datatypes in a program, especially seems sometimes the datatypes seems to scale down to 8 bit (256 colors) even the screen has 24 bit which I do not understand and if there is a way to let the datatype scale the image to the right size. I use the BitmapScale from graphics.library but this is awfully slow (At least on AROS, even my straigh forward nearest neighbor routine is faster than that).

More Track Statistics

Posted by ALB42 on 10. Mai 2018No Comments

When calculating the statistics value for the track export I thought it would be nice to have them for the normal Tracks Properties Window as well and also repaired the color indicator for the right and left axis for MUI (in Zune it worked).

Export smooth tracks

Posted by ALB42 on 6. Mai 2018No Comments

With such a nice weather I drive a little bit more bicycle, therefore the track function of MUIMapparium is more interesting at the moment.
First of course the export I added for the Route also is useful for the track and there even more, because we can print out some additional informations about the track.
Depending on the Program recording the track the data can be very noisy so I added a simple smoothing function.

MUIMapparium Export Images / HTML

Posted by ALB42 on 5. Mai 2018No Comments

To be honest, the YOURS route finding is very bad, I need to find a replacement for it, the openrouteservice looks nice but I guess to really use it I have to host it myself.
Besides that I’m working on PNG export for MUIMapparium and also export the Route as HTML with the overview (just the current view of window).

MUIMapparium Route Creation

Posted by ALB42 on 1. Mai 2018No Comments

I was working on the route creation, sadly it seems the OpenLS is not available anymore for routing, so only YOURS is left. Thats a little bit pity because YOURS calculate nicely the route and orders for it, but sadly it does not show where the orders take place. (OpenLS did that, even there the route calculation was a little bit odd sometimes, thats teh reason I supplied both in Mapparium).
Nevertheless, it works now with YOURS for now, need a little bit more tweaking (especially to get the start/end point from current map center for example)

The search I managed now to put into a PopObject, if you type the search press enter or search button it will do a search (like the main search) and open the popup with the list of results a double click on an entry set it as start/stop point

Installing FreePascal …

Posted by ALB42 on 8. April 2018No Comments

Working on a Installer script to installing FreePascal for Amiga using the official way. In the past I often used Installer scripts but never wrote one. It looks very close to LISP (brackets everywhere 😉 ) luckily the scripts are just saved as text. You can peek into other scripts, how to make some of the more difficult parts. For the basic structure I found a nice program in Aminet InstallerGen, it provides a nice MUI Gui to create the install steps, which also helps to understand the language.
The first version is finished now. You can select the installation type, minimal, typical, full and customized. On customized you can select the packages to install. (see image) Of course it also adds the needed entries for assign and path to the user-startup. The plan is to create some more such installers to install more packages, afterwards, like LCL, MUIClass or the FPU-enabled units.
For MorphOS and OS4 this should be easy to create from it. On AROS it will be a little bit different, there is no need to alter the user-startup, you only need to register it as a package.
