qlandkartegt: GPS mapping (GeoTiff and vector) and GPSr management
NAMEQLandkarteGT - GPS mapping (GeoTiff and vector) and GPSr management
SYNOPSISqlandkartegt [ -d | --debug ] [ -h | --help ] -m
DESCRIPTIONQLandkarteGT is a versatile tool for GPS maps in GeoTiff format as well as Garmin's img vector map format. QLandkarteGT is the successor of QLandkarte. Among various improvements (e.g. 2D/3D map rendering and reduced resource demands) the major difference is its device-independent architecture, which is not limited to Garmin devices anymore.
Additionally, QLandkarteGT serves as a frontend to the GDAL tools, to make georeferencing of scanned maps feasible for users. In contrast to similar tools (e.g. QGis) its straightforward interface is especially suited for non-scientific users.
OPTIONSQLandkarteGT currently understands the following options. Note that long options must be specified in full (by now).
- Enable additional debugging messages to standard output.
- Print a short option summary, and exit.
- Monitor the file descriptor FD for activity. If any new data arrives on the descriptor, a single byte is read from it, all currently active data are discarded, and the geo data files that have been specified at the end of the command-line when starting QLandkarteGT are read and evaluated again.
- Do not display the splash screen on startup.
