EOTopo History: 11 Oct 2013 - 2013.2 (Online)

Friday, Oct 11, 2013 at 13:20


Well it did not take long to roll from 2013.1 to 2013.2 What has changed? Well a lot has happened in the last 48 hours, including the loss of my master development copy of everything I have done for the last 12 years (thanks Skydrive I will never use you again). I was able to recover from several backup sources and as it stands I believe I am 95% back to current.

In terms of EOTopo however, I when I was testing the 2013.1 release I did not notice for several days that the palette table I was using (this is a colour reduction template to bring the images down in size and colour complexity) was the old one from the last tile set. This made the fancy new hill and slope shading look average. So decided to make a new template this morning and the result is back to awesome.

Whist I was rebuilding the template I decided to have another look at road labels as I was not happy with the labels as they were too hard to read. So in 2013.2 we have all new road labels using a different font, outline colour and size.

These are the main updates to the system and as at 12pm AEST 11th Oct the tiles are being rebuilt in the tile server - so for the next few days these tiles will be built progressively as people request areas of the map that have not yet been opened. If you see a pause in tile delivery this is most likely what is going on and it should complete the tile delivery within a few seconds so please wait it will reduce the load on the tile building programs.

Anyway hope you like the latest and most awesome release of EOTopo. TO view the full set in the new full screen viewer go to EOTopo Full Screen
