Maps on a Stick
Maps on a Stick is a lightweight mapping solution for mobile, unplugged maps.
MapBox tilesets (
.mbtiles), KML, GeoRSS, and KMZ files are supported.
Using Maps on a Stick
- Download the main maps on a stick application
- Run Maps.app on Macintosh or
Start MapBox.baton Windows
Add map tiles by dropping
.kmz (Google Earth) files
Maps/ folder or specifying a URL in the interface, or
uploading files with the web interface.
Maps on a Stick, unlike bare OpenLayers, supports KMZ files, by simulating their unpacking and using a special KMZ format type to prefix paths so that they resolve. This has only been tested with Icons.
