Description:

Multiplatform, plugin based navigation software. Supports combined online and offline map viewing. Currently supported map servers:

* Bing Maps
* Freemap.sk
* Google Maps
* HikeBikeMap.de
* Historic aerial maps of Czech Republic
* MapQuest Open
* Mapy.cz
* OpenStreetMap
* Ovi Maps
* Yahoo Maps
* Also there are three historical maps in stereographic projection to demonstrate application flexibility.

Maps can be downloaded into packages, packages merged, split or converted into another format via intuitive saving wizard. Application has also a few simple tools for distance measuring or coordinate conversion.

Almost everything the application consists of is a plugin, so it's easy to change, add or remove functionality dynamically without the need for application restart.

You can learn more in the official announcement of version 0.1.2: http://mosra.cz/blog/article.php?a=17-kompas-0-1-2-packaged-for-your-favourite-distribution

Help needed - any help with packaging for another distributions, testing on different operating systems, translations or just bugreports are really welcome. Thanks in advance.

very interesting approach with these plugins, also this app has a low latency and stable qt-gui -> i like it!

Are you going to include search of places in the future?

thx

Thanks for your nice comment :-)

Searching will be part of vector map support, which is planned for next version (0.2 or 0.3). Next to searching I'm also planning support for points of interest, geotagged photos and wikipedia articles, webcam support, 360° or "street-view"-like images, etc.

I've tried to compile kompas on kubuntu 10.10 but I think I've missed library.

I see the problem, you should first compile and install Core library and then compile Qt GUI (and then plugins).

The makefiles are acting weird in this case, instead of outputting strange errors like this they should say that Core library was not found. I will try to fix that and post new sources.

Currently it would be probably easier to build everything at once - create build dir in root of the sources (not in any subdir) and build&install it from there.
