Martis Lite 1.3.2.117

Create and edit GPS vector maps
The Martis application was designed to be is a software program that lets you create and edit GPS vector maps visually with the focus on Garmin devices and maps.

A special attention was given ease of use. If you ever worked with a vector graphics program you'll be familiar with creating Maps in a minimum of time. You just have to draw some lines and points. However, the creation of GPS maps is not a trivial task and it takes a lot of time to create a good map even for a small area.

With Martis you can:
- Create new Maps for your Garmin device.
- Import and edit existing maps from various formats and sources.
- Can download Maps from OpenStreetMap.
- Edit maps just like as in other vector graphics programs.
- Capture position data from a connected GPS device and record tracks.
- Calculate short and/or fast routes.

Main features:

  • Load and Save Maps in Polish Format, OSM and its own XML like file format.
  • Load ESRI shape, MapInfo MIF and TAB files.
  • Load and Save Tracks, Routes and Waypoints in GPX format and KML.
  • Download maps from OpenStreetMaps.
  • Compile the map to a Garmin IMG file using cGPSmapper and/or mkgmap with just one click.
  • GPS Tracking using the Garmin protocol via USB and COM and NMEA via TCP/IP and COM. Automatically records the track in given interval and/or distance.
  • Simulate GPS position data.
  • Polyline and Polygon simplification using the Douglas Peucker Algorithm.
  • Route finding using the A* algorithm.
  • Unlimited Undo/Redo and all other usual editing functions.
  • Guide Lines
  • Editing the map as like in any other vector graphics program.
  • Additional components: Alitmeter, Speedo meter (also for vertical speed), Compass, Altitude profile, Ruler (indicating map coverage, viewing area and GPS track pointer), threaded MiniMap.
  • Threaded search engine.
  • Map validation, find common pitfalls.
  • Add bitmaps to the map and georeference them. Read GPS position from EXIF data.
  • Support for Garmin Levels and Layers as found in other graphics programs.
  • Map legend.
  • You're completely free how to arrange all the windows and you can even save them. If you know Delphi, it's similar to Delphis Desktops.
  • Due to the use of separate threads for time expensive operations, it takes advantage of modern multi CPU/Core/Thread computers.
  • Supports the following projections (there are still some esoteric projections which are not (yet) implemented):
  • UTM North
  • UTM South
  • British National Grid
  • Dutch RD Grid
  • Gauss Kruger, also known as Transverse Mercator
  • Germany DHTN
  • Irish Grid
  • Irish Transverse Mercator
  • New Zealand Map Grid
  • New Zealand TM 2000
  • Italy Zone 1
  • Italy Zone 2
  • Russian SK 42
  • Swedish RT90 25 gon W
  • Swiss Coordinate System
  • Miller Cylindrical
  • Mercator
  • Albers Equal Area Conic
  • Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area (Polar and Oblique)
  • Lambert Conformal Conic
  • Sinusoidial
  • Equidistant Conic
  • Cassini
  • Stereographic (Polar and Oblique)
  • Azimuthal Equidistant (Polar only)
