74. Creating Map Themes

To add an arbitrary online or offline map to Little Navmap simply add the map directory from a downloaded or self created map theme to the data\maps\earth directory.

Note that you need to restart Little Navmap to see the new map themes in the menu.

The full path to the DGML file (see links below for more details about DGML) describing the map must be ...\Little Navmap\data\maps\earth\opencyclemap\opencyclemap.dgml if you like to add the OpenCycleMap for example. The DGML file can refer to an online map service or included offline map data. Usually a map theme contains many more files than only the DGML.

The menu View -> Theme in the main menu and the toolbar drop down box will receive an entry for each additional map theme.

The option Show Country and City Names is enabled for all additional map themes but might not work depending on properties defined in the map’s DGML file.

See the comments in the included file data\maps\earth\example\example.dgml or here online example.dgml for more information.

More maps and information about map configuration and DGML files can be found here on the Marble and KDE pages:
