[Solved] Using OpenStreet Map

Postby johnoo » Fri Jun 22, 2018 3:31 pm

I've just started using "Open Street Map" web site.
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=5/58.171/-8.525
I would like to store downloads of maps in AOO Write.
Any idea how this can be carried out.
The only way I can see at the moment is to download to Windows Photo Viewer

The download seems to be in .osm format, which is based on XML. I suspect you will be better to target opening in Draw; whether you might need to write a filter to improve rendering, I cannot say.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP

Thanks, think I've solved it.
I download as PNG & then copied/pasted to Write & it's OK.

See [Tutorial] Some useful hints on using images for a discussion on how best to handle images in Writer.
AOO 4.1.5, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
