Map Viewer

Map Viewer plugin allows you to view maps provided by OpenStreetMap.

How to Start

  1. Click menu bar -> Tools -> Plugins -> Get More Plugins and install "Map Viewer"
  2. Restart Makagiga
  3. Click New -> Map Viewer
  4. The plugin is unsigned so it will trigger a Security Manager warning (new feature in Makagiga). In this case you safely grant permission to "Cache" and "Internet/Network" elements. Just click "Do not ask again" and "Allow". Makagiga Security Manager is still experimental - please report all related bugs :)

Basic Navigation

  • Mouse Scroll - zoom in/out
  • Mouse Drag - move map
  • Keyboard Arrows - move map
  • See Edit and View menus for more functions

Known Issues

  • All downloaded images are stored in "cache/{e26fd670-7e65-4ec9-be28-1ff06285e58a}" directory. You may want to remove this folder manually to free up some disk space.
  • No built-in search function yet. As a workaround, you can paste a permalink from Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps, OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.
  • I hope all the above problems will be resolved in future versions :)

Map Viewer plugin uses a modified JMapViewer component licensed under GPL.
