RiscOSM, the mapping software from Sine Nomine that uses data derived from OpenStreetMap has gained a major new feature in time for the London Show. Towards the end of his talk at April’s Wakefield Show, Matthew Phillips mentioned that Sine Nomine were looking at adding contour lines, the data for which is now available from Ordnance Survey under an open data licence.

That feature has now been added – although, being data from Ordnance Survey, that does mean it’s only for Great Britain. Upgrades to the latest version, supporting contour lines, along with map data that includes it, will be available at the show on Saturday, and Sine Nomine will be accepting old RiscOSM SD cards and USB sticks in part exchange for the upgrade.

Visitors to Saturday’s London Show will be able to see (and buy or upgrade to) a new version of RiscOSM, the map viewing software from Sine Nomine. The headline feature of the new version is the ability to trace out routes on the map – the software can now follow map features when doing so, making it easy to plan an accurate route. See it in action on Sine Nomine’s stand, or in the show theatre during Matthew Phillips’ presentation. Also check out Chris Hall’s GPS software, relaying location data to RiscOSM, which will be on display on the Soft Rock Software stand.

The latest map data will also be available to purchase, on both USB sticks and SD cards – and anyone bringing back an SD card (including the SD adapter for micro-SD cards) previously purchased from Sine Nomine will be entitled to a discount.

Firstly, just to say that Sine Nomine Software will unfortunately not be attending the MUG Show this year: the previous information circulated was the result of a misunderstanding.
