    Thank you !

      This is awesome, thank you!

      The level of work and time investment that's gone into this cannot be understated...quite an effort!

      Cheers,

              I have some good news: the PDF version will happen! It's only a matter of time.

                  Hi Flappie!
                  So what's up with the mbtiles or pdf version?

                    Hey mate ! I've been flying a lot on DCS, mainly as an F-14B RIO for my fellow pilot. But Heatblur is not to blame for the delay, I am.

                    The PDF process is what I would call pretty ugly. I'm not quite satisfied by the result, that is why I haven't published any of it. In fact I'd much rather publish an online vector version of the map (i.e. on Google Maps or so). This summer, I've been searching for the right tool to publish my vector map, to no avail. But some days ago, I found this, simply called MapServer. It's exactly what I wanted. This would require a dedicated server to run, but it's not an obstacle.

                    Now, I need some time to read the docs, create a Linux virtual machine and give this a try.

                      I had a quick look, and it seems (if I interpret what I read correctly) to support WMS. If we can get access to your map by WMS or similar standard, one can use our favorite maping app on our phone/tablet together with my own DCS add-on "DCS-to-GPS" and have a great moving map for Caucasus, not forced to use real world maps or occupie a big part of the device memory with the downloaded version from Combatflight.
                      I really hope to see this!
                      Good luck!

                          Fantastic. Brilliant work!

                          The thing is, helicopters are different from planes. An airplane by it's nature wants to fly, and if not interfered with too strongly by unusual events or by a deliberately incompetent pilot, it will fly. A helicopter does not want to fly. It is maintained in the air by a variety of forces in opposition to each other, and if there is any disturbance in this delicate balance the helicopter stops flying; immediately and disastrously.

                            Thank you, chromium !

                            I've learnt how to write a MapServer "MapFile". I've been through the obvious error messages and got away with it, but I'm now having a hard time trying to display the vegetation layer. For an unexplained reason, MapServer rejects it.
                            Here's what my current work looks like :




                            The (ugly) map you see is dynamically created through a standard WMS request. I'll deal with the ugly raster later, because I really want that trees to show up first.
