QLandkarte

QLandkarte GT

QLandkarte GT is a versatile tool for GPS maps in GeoTiff format as well as Garmin's img vector map format. QLandkarteGT is the successor of QLandkarte. Among various improvements (e.g. 2D/3D map rendering and reduced resource requirements) the major difference is its device-independent architecture, which is not limited to Garmin devices anymore. Additionally, it is the PC-side front end to QLandkarte M, a moving map application for mobile devices

QLandkarte GT serves as a frontend to the GDAL tools, to make georeferencing of scanned maps feasible for users. In contrast to similar tools (e.g. QGis) its straightforward interface is especially suited for non-scientific users.
