Presentation of digitized (bitmap) topographical maps.

All official digitized maps for Germany and Austria are available only through
Geogrid-Viewer because of proprietary, undocumented (and patented) data
format.
Geogrid-Viewer is used for products like TOP25 and TOP50 of the german
Landesvermessungsämter and also AMap_Fly.

What works

- viewing topgraphical maps

- measureing distances, planes and elevations
- navigating within the maps
- viewing multiple maps,
- couple different maps, if navigating in one map the other is refreshed automatically
- creating, saving and loading overlays
- setting different units for distances, planes and elevations
- setting different coordinate systems and grids like UTM, Gauß-Kröger, PO Military, BNG and many others
- viewing 3D images with red/green glasses
- windows settings like rulers, toolbars... autopanning
- showing map scale
- activation of map shading
- drawing on maps and saveing as overlay
- brideing and shadeing maps
- zooming in and out
- searching for locations (after manually installing ODBC drivers)
- reading track data from GPS log file, tracking GPS data on map
- autopanning
- reading data from and sending to GPS-Device

What does not

Setup ODBC-Driver, no registry for Geogrid-Plugins, make Com-Device for GPS-Devices

Workarounds

1) Setup ODBC driver

 For easy installation we use winetricks script to install ODBC drivers.

 start winetricks and install the following windows-dll: mdac28 and jet40
Unfortunately the installation don't set the required registry keys for
the MS Access database ODBC driver. It is therefore required to add the
following registry keys manually:

--start

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)]
"APILevel"="1"
"ConnectFunctions"="YYN"
"Driver"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\odbcjt32.dll"
"DriverODBCVer"="02.50"
"FileExtns"="*.mdb"

sudo chmod 666 /dev/ttys0

"FileUsage"="2"
"Setup"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\odbcjt32.dll"
"SQLTrace"="0"
"UsageCount"=dword:00000002

--end

Save the line between --start and --end to a file i.e. odbc.reg. Then
start the registry editor with wine regedit.exe. Select "Registry
import..." from the Registry menu and load the file odbc.reg.

After starting geogrid viewer, in Menu Edit-Objectdata-Search
for objects you should see the local database listed.rtunately the
installation don't set the required registry keys for the MS Access
database ODBC driver. It is therefore required to add the following
registry keys manually:

2) Include registry-key for Geogrid-Plugins

--end

Save the line between --start and --end to a file i.e. plugin.reg.
Then start the registry editor with wine regedit.exe. Select "Registry
import..." from the Registry menu and load the file plugin.reg.

3) Set up a COM device

In order for Geogrid to be able to upload/download anything from your
GPS, we need to set up a COM device so they can communicate. First load
the garmin_gps kernel module (which strangely didn’t autoload in
Ubuntu):

sudo modprobe garmin_gps
lsmod | grep garmin

And you should see something like:

garmin_gps 18212 0
usbserial 36911 1 garmin_gps

Turn on the GPS and connect it to the USB port. Then do:

ls /dev/ttyUSB*

You should see a device called ttyUSB0

Now we have to make this device visible as com1 port under Wine:

sudo chmod 666 /dev/ttys0
cd ~/.wine32/dosdevices
rm com1
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1
