Improved bundled Reports

As mentioned earlier in Reports, Mapton has a report container.

The bundled reports has now been improved to display the usage of some API components, this report can serve as an inspiration of contributing to Mapton by adding implementations.

The purpose of this report container is to have a placeholder for custom reports, some of them in not so open plugins.

Grid Painter part 2

The Grid Painter now supports the painting of custom local grids in any supported coordinate system. The next step is to add a nice label rendering.


A new feature just landed in Mapton, a Report “container”. It’s just a normal window with a tree view to the left and available space in the center.

When creating a report one has only to hook up to the extension point and then the platform will take care of the rest.

A simple bookmark report has been included but I know of report implementations that connects to external databases, generates files,  and so on. Mapton is ready to display your report – the rest is up to the plugin developer.

Zoom extents

It’s now possible to pan and zoom to the extents of a group of bookmarks.
