gpsinfo_create - Developer Documentation

A user friendly, GPL3 licensed tile creator for WMTS/gpsinfo based services. See http://www.gpsinfo.org for more information.

Compilation on Windows (Visual Studio 2019)

gpsinfo_create depends on

At the time of writing this document, both dependencies were available as Visual Studio 2019 prebuilt binaries. Hence, we recomment to build gpsinfo_create in 64-bit with Visual Studio 2019.

We use the cmake build system (https://cmake.org/), that allows to generate a Visual Studio solution from the accompanied CMakeLists.txt. Copy local_config_EXAMPLE.config in the source tree's root to local_config.cmake and edit the latter to provide the paths to both Qt and gdal.

Deployment

These are instructions for a simple manual deployment on windows

  • Compile a 64-bit executable of gpsinfo_create with Visual Studio 2019.
  • Copy the generated gpsinfo_create.exe executable to an empty directory that we refer to as DIR in the following.
  • Open the 'Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio 2019' and change to DIR.
  • In order to add all necessary Qt runtime files to DIR, run C:\Qt\Qt5.12.12\5.12.12\msvc2017_64\bin\windeployqt.exe --no-compiler-runtime --no-translations --no-quick-import --no-system-d3d-compiler --no-webkit2 gpsinfo_create.exe
  • Copy the contents of gdal-3.4.2-vs2019-x64\bin to DIR
  • Distribute DIR

Compilation on Linux (Ubuntu et al.)

Compilation on Linux is straight forward. Install the development packages of QT 5 and gdal, generate Makefiles with cmake (create local_config.cmake as described in above section windows compilation) and run them.

Further Documentation

The source code is documented in doxygen style format.
