I think your best bet is going to be downloading GIS data for populated places and coastlines (Natural Earth is an oft-recommended source) and performing a proximity analysis using GIS software to exclude all places except those matching some criteria, e.g. within 10 miles of a coastline. Bear in mind the world is a big place, and the coastlines are very ...

I think that the type of software you are looking for is called a chart plotter software. There are several solutions used in navigation, where using a laptop is more and more common. I will not list here the solutions using dedicated hardware (AIS/navigation systems for example). Amongst paying options you have the "best seller" called MaxSea ...

Interesting Project Having a Raspberry Pi myself, I have been amazed on the variety of solutions that can be done with a £25 ($35) computer. Update: This can be done and here is some proof: http://www.flypig.co.uk/?page=list&list_id=363&list=blog there is a video of this with the wireless keyboard ...

I currently work for a company that builds and maintains a navigable map product for several car companies. I cannot tell you too many specifics (due to NDA), but I can give you a basic overview. a) the GIS software that is powering automobile navigation systems. Are there any published specs, or are they completely proprietary implementations? ...

GPS receivers do not transmit any information they are built for receiving information. The encompassing device then uses said information depending on what the device was built for. You would be hard pressed to find a 'regular device' on the market which transmits data back to 'the satellites'. 'Talking' to 'the satellites' is not a necessary part of GPS ...

Open Trip Planner (Developer Section) OTP Deployer — The easiest way to get started with OTP is by using OTP Deployer, an web-based utility provided by OpenPlans Transportation. Deployer allows users to simply provide their transit data in the standard GTFS formay, and the rest of the process — from gathering street network data to building the ...

You should initialize the map with no controls. You can do this passing an empty array to the controls like this: map = new OpenLayers.Map('map', {zoomDuration: 1,projection: 'EPSG:3857' controls: []}); You should then add only those controls that you require, like this: map.addControl(new OpenLayers.Control.PanZoomBar()); map.addControl(new ...

Do you need to remove the big one (blue one?) or the small one behind it? if the big one is the issue, try commenting: map.addControl(new OpenLayers.Control.PanZoomBar()); and you should get only one control like here: var map, layer; function init(){ map = new OpenLayers.Map( 'map'); layer = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM( ...

You can install QGIS 1.8.0, and the Openlayers plugin which serves you with an Openstreetmap background. You can import your data as text delimited layer, or GPX points layer, and print them on top of the Openstreetmap background. If your data is in lat/long degrees, the Coordinate system for your layer should be EPSG:4326 WGS 84. The project CRS has to be ...

We had similar requirements when looking for a Maps API for our OpenTripPlanner for Android open-source project, and we decided to go with Android Maps API v2. Android Maps API v2 provides 3D camera control and 3D building renderings out-of-the-box, so you can easily create views like this: Android Maps API v2 was feature/performance-wise far beyond ...

There is (currently) no way for in-car navigation devices to make use of OSM map packages. The problem is that they are very closed embedded systems and there is no documentation about the navi file formats or how the operating system can be supplied with alternative software. As this situation is very sad, I highly recommend to start an petition on your ...

Assuming that you understand German, you can use my Openlayers solution to display GPX tracks and waypoints on top of OSM or other tiles: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Ajoessen/Osmviewer_und_GPXviewer
