Most maps return a big red X in the preview

Postby Woolous » 03 Mar 2017, 15:21

Hi,

I have not been using MOBAC for a while. I just downloaded and installed 2.0 beta3. I cannot get the previews to render for almost all of the provided map sources. Frustrating as I am trying to get ready for a trip where I will want to use offline maps.

The log file indicates that the TileLoader fails to access the tile requested.

I am stuck.

Here is my system info just in case.

tks

Have you performed an mapsource online update (see settings dialog)?
Some maps may have been updated because they were not working anymore.

BTW: About which map sources are you talking about?
Please read the MOBAC FAQ and MOBAC README before posting.

Thanks for the reply. I did the mapsource update that you recommended. This helped a lot. The USGS map are working much better now. However, even so there are random tiles that still get the red X.

I am mostly interested in coverage for the SW of US but also Europe and Central America.

OpenStreetMap CloudMade Default Style - fails to load for any zoom level.
OpenStreetMap Hikebikemap.de - Previews down to about zoom 13 then failing randomly or completely at higher zoom levels.
OpenStreetMap 4UMaps.eu - Seems to work ok except only detail to zoom level 15
USGS National Map Satellite+ - Does not work at all (All X)
USGS National Map Vector - Does not work at all (All X)

Are there other/better topographical/terrain map sources available?

tks,

CloudMade maps does no longer provide raster maps.

It seems like the USGS National Map Vector is no longer available, hence the map "USGS National Map Vector" and the map "USGS National Map Satellite+" (which makes use of the vector layer) do not work anymore.
