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.

Bridge? What bridge?

Sine Nomine Software’s Hilary Phillips has announced a new version of RiscOSM. Version 1.07 allows the user to save the location under the mouse pointer, whereas previously the saved position was the middle of the map, and also fixes a few issues that could previously cause RiscOSM to either crash, or omit features from the map.

Announcement from Hilary Phillips, 11th July, 2014.

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.

We are pleased to announce a new release of RiscOSM, the vector mapping software based on OpenStreetMap data. Continue reading »

Seven months on? This must be some kind of a record!

The RISC OS Southwest Show this year took place on 25th February – so this show report sets quite a record for the time between the event and its appearance at just under seven months. Unfortunately, this is a reflection of the amount of time I’ve had available in that intervening period to sit down and write the report. Which is to say: very little.

To make matters slightly worse, I usually refer to the photos I’ve taken at the show as a means to remind myself of who was there, what they were demonstrating, and so on – and this year, I forgot to take my camera. I did take a few pictures with my phone, but I really don’t like my phone as a camera (it’s perfectly capable, it’s just the way it has to be held, etc.) and therefore only have a few pictures.

If you can find it, you’ll be able to find out where you are. Or something.

The next RISC OS Users meeting in Bristol will take place on Wednesday, 13th September, in the Hope and Anchor pub, and will run from around 7:00-7:30pm until the pub’s closing time. An informal affair, the meetings are an opportunity for anyone in the area to meet up for a drink and a chat about all things RISC OS, and more besides.

This month, Chris Hall intends to bring along the latest version of his RISC OS-based satellite navigation device, Continue reading »
