Is it possible to add Geoserver to Qgroundcontrol, replacing Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and other mapping services ? Opengts allows this, and we have it working with maps, GeoTiffs, we created from scratch. We do this for a couple of reasons; 1. we need more detail than what is offered by ordinary mapping services 2. there are no fees to be paid should you be using one of these service for a money making venture.
Land vehicles may be in more need of detailed maps than aircraft.
Nice idea, although I think a better approach would be to add a WMS client which could access a Geoserver or any other wms map server.
Actually re-reading your post, maybe that's what you meant!
Hi Simon, Nice to hear from you .
Geoserver, which we have running on OpenGTS, is a WMS compliant. When we have time, we will look at implementing that into the Q Ground Control. Certain parts of the world are not mapped very well, or there is a greater need for detail, which is not available from on line mapping services.
If you have any pointers on where in the Q Ground Control to put the map server URL, I would be highly appreciative.
all map-related things in QGroundControl are from the OpenPilot OpMapControl. I don't know about WMS, so no specifics here, but the code for getting map tiles is (from the QGC root) in
Much appreciated ! I will have a look at it in the next few days and let you know.
