I can't seem to successfully get the maps using the aerial map grabber script. In fact, seems to be down. Am I missing something? Is there a way to have it look at another site for maps?

I was able to get this to work a while back. Mentat21 could pry help out more than myself. The script is currently specifically made for hitting terraserver, so I doubt it could be easily switched to another source.
-bobzilla - just a little bit

There seems to be another site, which I would like to try. I replaced the url in the pl script and got the same error. Perhaps MS/Terraserver have blocked such non-web requests? Are there other front-ends to the terraserver system which I could try?

By the way, I emailed the email address commented in the script and have not had a reply for several weeks now. :) Know of another way to contact him?

Yeah, I forgot the password to that account. =) Try mentat at hush dot com. I haven't had a chance to look at this yet, but I dropped by and it looked like it was still up. I don't think Microsoft took it down because it was one of their demo .NET web services. (Which would be the right way to download the maps, but I wasn't up to setting up SOAP in Perl...) I'll try to take a look next week at what the error is.

Look for gettile.ashx and change it to tile.ashx. My montage is acting strangely so I'm not sure if this fixes everything, but at least there are tiles again.

Is there anything special that need be done to get the script to work? or is it somethin server related? Here's what I get:

Getting tiles:
Generating Maps: montage: Unrecognized option (-1.830.jpg)
.convert: Unable to open file(aerial-2.png) [No such file or directory].
.convert: Unable to open file(aerial-2.png) [No such file or directory].
Calculating Coordinates: ...Illegal division by zero at line 2136.

Am I doing something wrong?

I think I might of found the problem with the script, in the get_tiles function, it has this:

Code: Select all

for ($j = $start_j; $j > ($end_j - 1); $j--) { for ($i = $start_i; $i < ($end_i + 1); $i++) {
but since start_i is greater than end_i, it should be this:

Code: Select all

for ($j = $start_j; $j > ($end_j - 1); $j--) { for ($i = $start_i; $i > ($end_i - 1); $i--) {
I changed that and now it is busy dling all the files where before it didn't download anything.

Is that error in the most recent version of the script, 3.1? I've used it extensively and haven't see this issue.
