how to use it

There is a map view in the center of window where map is shown. Below it is information area for showing status of current operation, map resolution in meters per pixel and GPS coordinates for current view. There is also other informations shown, line downloaded size during saving of map. There are buttons for download actions and parameter selectors on the top of the window.

Navigating through the map is done by clicking into one of five parts of map view. Clicking into central part will load map with higher resolution. Step back is possible by right button click anywhere on the map. Click on side parts of map moves map by that direction. Mouse cursor is changed according to its position on map view to signalize possible action. If there is not available map in selected resolution on the server, there is displayed special picture to signalize it.

Once selected view is found download can be started by clicking on Make! button. This will save map in current resolution and size selected in combobox. Saved will be current view or selected area if was made by selection rectangle. There is possibility to select only small part of map by mouse. When selected area is marked, map image will be saved only for this area, not for whole map.

Largest picture can be saved by selecting highest resolution which will make picture bigger than 8192x8192 pixels and very large TIFF file or compressed jpeg file will be saved. It is better to use large map resolutions with small selected area to reduce file size and time during downloading of map. OziExplorer or other selected map file is automatically generated for saved map view.
