Dear all,
I have published a piece of PHP in the tuxbrain blog[1] that allows to
"translate" the OSM tile sistem used by TangoGPS(and omgps) to a
standard OGC WMS 1.1.1 web services,
In the code[2] is an example implemented the Institut Catala de
Cartografia ( but I think the hard stuff (changing
coordinates), change datum, etc can be reused to other wms server out
there, the maps usually are free aviable for non comercial use, so I
think it can be interesting to use other maps source than OSM (low
detail in some zones) or google maps (not able to mass download).
The article is in spanish but the source code comments are on english.
As always comments are welcome.
