Hey all !
I'm doing a little helper widget that will include a realtime mini-map, among other things.
The API isn't offering the coordinates I need unfortunately, and I doubt it will happen very soon.
So I could use some volunteers, if anyone is interested, to help me get the position of each street on their according map
I already did a good part of it, but I thought I'd be funnier with some collaborative dimension :]
Here is how to do it :
Go get the little tool I prepared over here
You will see three files in the archive:
And a folder with the maps (thx to Glitch Atlas)
If you don't trust the exe, you can launch instead the source ahk file, after installing Autohotkey
I wish I did a web tool instead, but I have no idea how to :]
The Map.ini is there as reference, but the idea is to complete the collaborative version, located at the bottom of this post
So after you launched the mapper, select a picture according to what's left to do
This mapper "app" is a very simple script that will get the mouse position, alt-tab to the nearest window, and paste the coordinates there
So to use it, open Map.ini first in a notepad and place the cursor on the appropriate street/line, then switch to the mapper
Click in the middle (be precise ;) of the street, and it will paste the position automatically in the notepad
I hope it's not too complicated (or too bugged :p as I'm really not a developer)
Alternatively, you could go for example there, and write down the position manually for each street
I started to do it this way, but it's a lot longer
Anyway I'll be glad if some people join the party
Don't go crazy and do everything yourself tho :p
If you have any trouble ask me
