We are proud to announce the release of OpenOrienteering Mapper 0.9.3. This official release includes bug fixes and new features. Key changes since v0.9.2 are:


  • When drawing, follow border lines of line symbols, just as following the middle line.
  • Improved geospatial data handling with GDAL:
    • Detecting drivers by file content if possible.
    • Opening OziExplorer’s files as templates.
    • On import, clip vector data to the declared extent, useful for exports from OSM.
  • Simple support for NMEA position sources on Linux and macOS (e.g. from Bluetooth).
  • Additional space between object control points and selection rectangle.
  • Template list button in toolbar.
  • Translation updates.

Fixed bugs

  • Specifying raster image coordinate reference system.
  • Positioning of new OCD templates, and positioning of some existing templates.
  • Initialization of georeferencing for OCD files.
  • Vector data coordinate transformations for certain CRS, affecting e.g. EPSG:27700 (OSGB36).
  • OSM import of roads.
  • Handling of border line as area outline.
  • Rare crashes.

This release contains 196 commits with 133 changed files since v0.9.2. Many thanks go to 26 contributors.
