I just randomly picked a place in Omaha Nebraska and my maps are working. I have no cache there.
This includes almost everying on the NJPB maps menu, the only things currently working are Google Maps, the Topo (from ArcGIS) and my old LIDAR map
At one time today, you couldn't get aerial view on Google Maps, but now you can.
I did read it clearly. Everything on Ben's maps worked properly for me all day.Sorry, but you clearly didn't read my post. There's no problem with Google Maps, I specifically said they are working. It's the NJGIN servers that are down.
I was able to use every year map and they worked. Simple as that.Just to be clear, all of these maps except "Topo" will be affected by this:
This is the last thing they posted on twitter.Sorry, but you clearly didn't read my post. There's no problem with Google Maps, I specifically said they are working. It's the NJGIN servers that are down.
I didn't notice any problem with Google maps. If there was one, then it's not related to what I have described. Anyway, the NJGIN servers are still down and all of those maps are still unavailable. NJGIN has a Twitter (X?) account but I can't view it since I'm not a member (and never will be, LOL). If you have access, this is their account. Maybe something is posted there?
Is a Kindle Fire considered and Android Tablet? My phone is Apple:-(Thanks! But these aren't anything new, they're just the same 2012 aerials you can already access from NJGIN. I'm downloading the full-resolution (1 foot/pixel) map tiles to use with my offline maps. Not sure of the size yet, but I think it will be around 5 million tiles and 200gb. This makes it practical to include on a 1tb SD card along with other maps of the Pines. But I'm not going to put it on my internet server because disk space is very expensive there and we already have the NJGIN version for free.
We'll see how things go, but I'm thinking of a "boydsmaps pro" that you could purchase on an SD card for Android phones and tablets. It would contain comprehensive maps of the Pines and work without any internet connection or data plan. As a bonus, it would also feature a "pro" version of the boydsmaps app and maybe enhanced LIDAR maps at twice the resolution of the current online maps.
I"d prefer it on Kindle anyway.Much bigger screen and the Kindle has a GPS antenna.My understanding is that they run a customized version of Android. Your version would depends on which Kindle Fire you have, see:
According to that link, the oldest version of FireOS is based on Android 5. I am able to run the app on my old Samsung Galaxy Tab with Android 4. So, theoretically, it should work unless Amazon does somethiing weird on their tablets.
It will be a little while before any of this happens however. I'm using it now myself, but it's still unfinished code. When (if?) I get farther along, I'll offer a small (2gb?) downloadable preview version of the offline maps that only covers a small area.
They sell SD card readers that plug into my IPhone to see pictures from my game cameras maybe that would work? I’m sure they sell them for androids as wellShould also add that the tablet would need a compatible SD card slot. According to this, only the 5th generation or newer tablets have card slots.
