Surely most of you know the OpenStreetMap (OSM) cartography, and almost certainly you have used it in some of your projects with gvSIG Desktop. Now we have added three new servers to the great number of OSM servers that were already available in gvSIG, that we think that will be interesting for certain uses:
- OSM France. Oriented to show the OSM data with the toponymy in French and the most representative symbols of French culture (for example, bakeries are represented with the symbol of a baguette). Surely it will be useful for the growing French-speaking gvSIG Desktop users community.
- Hillshading. It shows the relief of the ground through a representation using grey tones.
- OSM B&W. In this case it shows the OSM cartography, as represented by Mapnik, but without using colours, only using grey tones.
Here you have a video where you can see these three new OSM servers:
And if you don’t want to wait for the new gvSIG Desktop version to use them, you can add them manually filling in these parameters at the “OSM” tab of the “Add layer” window:
