Geospatial data support with GDAL
OpenOrienteering Mapper uses the GDAL library for supporting a broad range of geospatial raster and vector data. GDAL’s vector data support used to be known as OGR, so you will sometimes find this name, too.
Geospatial raster data, such as GeoTIFF or JPEG2000 files, can be used as templates starting with Mapper v0.9.2. Geospatial vector data, such as Shape, OSM, or DXF files, may be used as templates, too. But it also possible to open or import vector data as map data.
In addition, the File menu offers the option to export a map in selected geospatial vector data formats. The actual GDAL driver is selected by the extension (e.g. “.dxf”) given to the filename.
When using GDAL formats as templates, some filename extensions may be supported by multiple providers (plain image, GDAL raster data, GDAL vector data). In these cases, a secondary provider from GDAL may be selected by prefixing the regular extension with “raster.” or “vector.” as listed below.
Please note that some of the raster formats listed below are not used for images but for actual geospatial metrics meant for algorithmic processing.
GDAL formats offered by OpenOrienteering Mapper
The following list is valid for the official Android, macOS and Windows releases as of v0.9.2. Linux packages are likely to support additional formats, depending on the configuration of the distribution’s GDAL package.
