Bet­ter raster-tile layer sup­port

  • Im­prove­ments and bug­fixes for in­put forms
  • Abil­ity to spec­ify tile­set pa­ra­me­ters (tile size and scheme)

Tile­sets should now be spec­i­fied us­ing a Tile­J­SON tiles spec, e.g.{z}/{x}/{y}.png

Pro­ject re­pro­jec­tion

Spa­tialite pro­jects can be re­pro­jected from the Edit pro­ject form by spec­i­fy­ing a new SRID. All fea­tures will be rewrit­ten, so use this ca­pa­bil­ity with cau­tion!

Plan­e­tary use

Bet­ter sup­port for plan­e­tary (non-Earth) use by pro­vid­ing a path­way to add cus­tom co­or­di­nate sys­tems. Co­or­di­nate sys­tems must be added to the spatial_ref_sys table in an ex­ter­nal SQLite browser.

Add an op­tional spheroid_radius pro­ject con­fig­u­ra­tion set­ting to adapt map scale re­port­ing to dif­fer­ent plan­e­tary bod­ies. This con­fig­u­ra­tion must be added di­rectly to the pro­ject file, as such:

INSERT INTO mapboard_config
VALUES ('spheriod_radius', 3396190);
