Skyview base maps


#1

The new Skyview using lighttpd has only one base-map, whereas the embedded web-server served up several different base-maps. One map containing terrain shade, with the option to display a terrain layer that was even better.

I miss the terrain maps, and others may miss the satellite map.

Is it possible to configure lighttpd to use different base maps?

The old system used google maps when they didn’t require an user key to use it. Google maps now requires you to request a “google maps API key” and you can enter that into the piaware software to get the old maps.

Read their terms of use before using them.

Bing also has a map API key that works with Skyview.

Skyview maps default to use open street maps. This is open and free to use without an API key.
