WordPress OpenStreetMap / OpenSeaMap Plugin OSM V3.3 released

The latest version of WP OSM Plugin focused on changing technology to cover features of mobile devices and simplify the shortcode. Features of the latest versions are:

  • display KML files with osm_map_v3 shortcode
  • Possibility to disable ajax by define
  • Set your preferred location for geotagger as define
  • Update to OpenLayers 3.5

Display KML files with osm_map_v3 shortcode

The shortcode of the WP OSM Plugin detects the filetype of GPX and KML file:

GPX-file in OpenSeaMap:
[*osm_map_v3 map_center="52.628,5.291" zoom="9" type="OpenSeaMap" width="75%" height="330" file_list="../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OpenStreetMap_GPX_red.gpx"]
<=remove the “*”
KML-file in OpenStreetMap:
[*osm_map_v3 map_center="38.713,-9.136" zoom="16" width="75%" height="300" map_border="thin solid orange" theme="ol_orange"  file_list="../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OSM_01_red.kml, ../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OSM_01_black.kml" file_color_list="red,black"]
<=remove the “*”

Possibility to disable ajax by define

It has been reported that some user got the error:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /wp-admin/post.php on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

There are many possible reasons, most time it’s related to the .htaccess file. We do not want to make any security advices, but we provide a define to disable ajax for WP OSM Plugin only:

  1. go to the folder wp-content/plugins/osm
  2. open file osm-config-sample.php
  3. change and save
    from:
      // replace >True< with >False< if you want to disable it
      define (“OSM_enable_Ajax”, True);
    to:
      // replace >True< with >False< if you want to disable it
      define (“OSM_enable_Ajax”, False);
Important: This setting is deleted after WP OSM Plugin update. You have to reset it after update!

Set your preferred location for geotagger as define

You can also preset the start location of the maps in geotagger and shortcode generator. Eg to set it for Hamburg:
  1. go to the folder wp-content/plugins/osm
  2. open file osm-config-sample.php
  3. change and save
    from:
      // change them for shortcode generatgor & geotagger
      // to your location
    define (“OSM_default_lat”, 48.856614);
      define (“OSM_default_lon”, 2.352222);
    to:
      // change them for shortcode generatgor & geotagger
      // to your location
    define (“OSM_default_lat”, 53.551085);
    define (“OSM_default_lon”, 9.993682);

Preview: WordPress OpenStreetMap Plugin OSM with OpenLayers 3 for GPX with Waypoints

WordPress 4.2 will be released very soon and the WP OSM Plugin is prepared quite well and will release with V3.2 by the end of next week. Main work of the last weeks is to bring whole functionality to OpenLayers 3 library and improve performance and usability.

Handling of KML and GPX files will be improved and GPX files also support waypoints. A map with 3 GPX files and 2 waypoints in each of them will be integrated with this shortcode:

[*osm_map_v3 map_center="52.862,5.437" zoom="9" width="100%" height="500" map_border="medium solid blue" file_list="../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OpenStreetMap_GPX_red.gpx,../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OpenStreetMap_GPX_green.gpx,../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OpenStreetMap_GPX_blue.gpx" file_color_list="red,green,blue"]

This shortcode generates the following map. Click on the waypoints to get the names:

blumax GPS Logger in Ubuntu 14.04 Linux als GPX Datei auslesen und komprimieren

Auf Reisen sind GPS Logger eine feine Sache, man kann damit Fotos georeferenzieren oder Routen aufzeichnen und in einer Karte darstellen. Der blumax GPS Logger ist viele Jahr alt und wird mit dem Standard Chipsatz auch unter Ubuntue 14.04 zum Auslesen der GPS Daten als GPX-file unterstützt.

blumax 4043 GPS Logger

blumax 4043 GPS Logger

Der Schalter am GPS-Logger muß in der Stellung >LOG< sein

Kommando zum Auslesen unter Linux Ubuntu ohne löschen:

sudo gpsbabel -t -w -i mtk -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o gpx -F MyFile.gpx

Kommando zum Auslesen und löschen:

sudo gpsbabel -t -w -i mtk,erase -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o gpx -F out.gpx

Für eine Reise von Bagdogra nach Darjeeling in Indien sieht ein einzelner trackpoint im 1.6 MB großen GPX file so aus:

  <trkpt lat="26.699590668999999" lon="88.319783779000005">
    <ele>150.00006099999999</ele>
    <time>2015-03-25T06:44:28Z</time>
    <speed>7.2144539999999999</speed>
    <fix>3d</fix>
  </trkpt>

Für die Darstellung in der Karten werden aber nur lat und lon benötigt und rot verursacht lediglich ladezeit, daher werden diese Bereich gelöscht:

cat Input.gpx | grep -v -E '<speed>|<fix>|<ele>|<time>' > Output.gpx

Damit sinkt die Filegröße von 1.6MB auf 607kB. Mit GPSBabel werden nun Punkte aus dem File entfernt die Näher als 10m aneinander liegen:

gpsbabel -i gpx -f Input_grep.gpx -x position,distance=10m -o gpx -F Outpu.gpx

Damit wird die Datei nochmals von 607kB auf 268kB optimiert und sieht in der OpenStreetMap Karte wie folgt aus:

WP OSM Plugin shortcode:

[*osm_map_v3 map_center="26.881,88.28" zoom="11" width="60%" height="630" map_border="medium solid red" file_list="../../../../wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2015/04/India_Bagdogra_Darjeeling_opt_01.gpx" file_color_list="red"]]

V3.1: Map icons collection with cc0 instead of cc-by and openlayers 3 geotag widget

This latest version of WP OSM Plugin brings three features:

There are two new shortcodes added to the plugin kml_file_list and kml_colour_list. A sample looks like this:

[*osm_map lat=”38.713″ lon=”-9.136″ zoom=”16″ width=”95%” height=”300″ control=”scaleline” map_border=”thin solid orange” theme=”ol_orange”  kml_file_list=”../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OSM_01_red.kml, ../../../../wp-content/uploads/osm_map/OSM_01_black.kml”]

Up to OSM-Plugin version 3.0 all icons were cc-by, we have replaced them with cc0 icons:

Adding geotag to WordPress and OpenStreetMap with WP OSM Plugin V2.9.4

Adding a geolocation to a post / page was introduced to the WordPress OSM Plugin many years ago – there are sites like Fotomobil.at and Hamburgs Brücken wich use it with hundreads of geocoded posts. The latests version of WP OSM Plugin added a sidebar widget at your edit post area to directly set the geolocation without dealing with custom fields by yourself:

WP OSM  Plugin geotag

WP OSM Plugin geotag

If you want to, there is also the possibility to define an icon to the post which is later on shown in the overall map.

Beside the geolocation widget the latest version brings also some new icons, find them here.

And many thanks to Andrea for italian tranlsation!
