The Icon Bar: News and features: Internet integration added to RiscOSM
 

Internet integration added to RiscOSM

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:56, 15/3/2019 | ,
 
One of the really exciting developments at the SW show was how software developers are starting to use the new features being added into RISC OS by the bounties. The TCP/IP and TLS developments in particular are allowing far more integration with the Internet.
 

 
Sine Nomine showed off a neat little addition to RiscOSM called Recce. This allows integration with both Flickr and Google Street View from the application. This makes it very easy to see any pictures posted on your maps and also to see the same View you would get from Google. This pops up in a window and you even get a little compass to change the direction of view. Very neat!
 
You can try Recce for free and the software is being sold for 10 pounds - proceeds going towards the TCP/IP bounty.

This sounds really useful. RiscOSM is already one of my most-used RISC OS apps - the ability e.g. quickly and easily to create and output a .gpx file which I can play on my iPhone has, without exageration, revolutionised my cycling and walking activity - no more en route fumbling with maps/guide books! Sine Nomine deserve credit for continually developing and extending an excellent product.
