TILESELECTOR

This is the basic program you need to export the various scripts.

At first, you need to setup your configuration, which includes the path to your project folder (where all the tools like “osmconvert.exe” are placed). the path to your “wpscript.exe”, “QGIS”-folder, “imagemagick.exe” and all the other settings for the actual map. More about the scales here. You cann export and import settings for later use. A XML-File will be generated with your settings.

After setting up everything, you need to select the Tiles you want to export. The more Tiles you select, the longer the whole process takes. I recommend not to export more than 100 Tiles at once. (It wont require more performance, it just takes longer) You can select Tiles by hovering your mouse over the map. The name of the Tile, which includes the dagree latitude and longitude will appear. After selecting a Tile, the color will change to green. You can also search for the right Tiles with a higher resolution on this website.

In addition, you can switch between the terrain and the borders as a background image.

You can also save and load your selection in an *.xml file. Or download a preconfigured file for different countries from this website (soon).

When you change the size for each Tile (“Tiles per Map” setting) the selection will be removed. When you change the scale or anything else in the settings, the selection stays.

At the end, you only need to click the export buttons on the bottom right and the program will generate all the scripts you need for the process.

All you have to do is running the batch file(s). All at once or step by step for debugging.
