Qt OSM Map Providers Repository Creator

This repository provides scripts to easily setup a Qt OSM Map providers repository to allow use of tile servers that require an API key (including support for high DPI tiles)

A full write up of the method used here can be found at: https://blog.mikeasoft.com/2020/06/22/qt-qml-maps-using-the-osm-plugin-with-api-keys/

Usage

  1. First obtain an API key from https://www.thunderforest.com/docs/apikeys/
  2. Next clone this repository git clone https://github.com/Elleo/qt-osm-map-providers.git
  3. Run: ./set_api_keys.sh your_api_key (replacing your_api_key with the key you obtained in step 1)
  4. Copy the files from this repository to your webserver (e.g. http://www.mywebsite.com/osm_repository)
  5. Set the osm.mapping.providersrepository.address property to point to the location setup in step 4 (see the QML example below)

QML Example

import QtQuick 2.7
import QtQuick.Controls 2.5
import QtLocation 5.10

ApplicationWindow {

    title: qsTr("Map Example")
    width: 1280
    height: 720

    Map {
        anchors.fill: parent
        zoomLevel: 14
        plugin: Plugin {
            name: "osm"
            PluginParameter { name: "osm.mapping.providersrepository.address"; value: "http://www.mywebsite.com/osm_repository" }
            PluginParameter { name: "osm.mapping.highdpi_tiles"; value: true }
        }
        activeMapType: supportedMapTypes[1] // Cycle map provided by Thunderforest
    }
    
}
