Can't open output map! Permission denied at contour.pl line 389.

My bad, I was developing and debugging a new version, which placed a temporary map file in a directory the download process couldn't overwrite.

It's fixed now. Note to self: don't use the same server directory for development versions.

I just figured this out (I'm dense with some things) and.... Oh My!

Wonderful tool that takes an avid map maker like me to the point of saving weeks of effort.

Fantastic work!

Yeah, it's really, really nice work.

If anyone builds maps from this post them and I'll get them into a patch

So if it takes 66 requests to build a map...

The Google Maps Elevation API has the following limits in place:

(snip)

$0.50 USD / 1000 additional requests, up to 100,000 daily.


I certainly can transfer a few bucks a month for this tool.

Well, the problem is that it'd be a hassle to handle everything. Chipping in $5 a month is no problem, handling the payments etc. is. Currently there is no such traffic that there would be any problem with this free service.

Tried making a map with this location; got a uniform flat map.

http://www.venhola.com/maps/geo.php?...89355469&rot=0

This was something I had problems too with making maps via MicroDEM too -- the difference between a near sea level map and one at 400m above sea level; meaning I had to keep a set of MicroDEM terrain level tables for each altitude.

I'll take a look at it.
