Tiling, Parsing, and Labels - Oh MY! (Dev: 2011/10/31 21:38)
- Reduce the number of OSM fetch threads used for getting tiles for
immediate display. The center tile has always been a single, dedicated,
priority thread. There is now only one thread to fetch surrounding
tiles sequentially. A final thread sedately sites in the background
fetching adjacent tiles to be ready for panning motions.
Never prefetch zoom levels 17 or higher. These are extremely detailed
street-level views that are built on demand and place a great load on
the servers. The only way to get these tiles is to manually pan/zoom to
the areas where you NEED that level of detail. To see the raw zoom
level, double-click an empty spot on the map and look at the z: on the
Validate overlay byte per spec. Overlays are only A-Z and 0-9. To get
compressed 0-9, use a-j (APRSISCE/32 automatically does this for you).
This WILL cause some stations to no longer appear, but they also don't
appear on aprs.fi! (aprs101.pdf page 91)
Note: If you currently use an invalid overlay, it may be reset to a
valid value at any point. Please verify your Configure / General symbol
Increase validation of individual Mic-E character ranges. You can see
the results in the "NoParse" trace log. Verified my new rejects vs
APRS.FI's raw log interpretation of the same station.
View / None with Screen / Paths checked now labels the path links on the
screen and (theoretically) no longer displays ME's paths unless it is
Station information popup now contains HeardBy: and Hearing: entries
with callsigns of direct (not digipeater) stations. Note that this can
make the popup really wide for a busy station, but it's the quickest
place I have to show the info right now.
