Map Making Support / Re: Kashmir (Pir Pinjal) map in 1:100k or less
« Last post by MojaveMan on January 17, 2018, 08:03:07 AM »
This is about the best I can find:
The Perry-Castaņeda Library has some online maps to download here:

It looks like the best they have to offer is 1:250000, the most recent from 1981:

That link is a text-based list of maps for download, which isn't very intuitive.  But at the top of the list is a link to a clickable map where you can find the area of interest and download actual maps in .jpg or .pdf formats.

You didn't mention what format you need the map in or what device you are using - making custom maps from PDF/JPG files for my Garmin is something I do quite a bit, so if you happen to find a usable map from that list I'd be happy to try to show you how to get it into a format a garmin can read (a "Garmin Cusom Map").

After poking around a bit, I have found these two offer maps for your area of interest:

Hello viewer and thank you for help.

Simply trying to source a topo map of the Pir Pinjal range of western Kashmir (indian). 1:100k km or less.

I'm grateful for your advice.

Map Making Support / Re: How to convert KML to OSM or .mp
« Last post by eaparks on January 10, 2018, 08:50:17 PM »
Save the .KML Google Map files; use GPSBabel and batch convert the .kml files to a .gpx file; Add the newly created .gpx file into GPSMapEdit and save as an .mp (polish) file.

As far as the polygons your wanting to create, you are probably already familiar with it, but in case your not.  Create a track/path in Google Earth around what your wanting to be a polygon , save as a .kml file, treat the track/.kml file just like any other file up to the point you add it to GPSMapEdit then "convert to" a polygon instead of a polyline.

Instructions are here on GpsFileDepot for GPSMapEdit if your not familiar with it.  Look in the instructions for Creating Maps.  GPSBabel is pretty well self explanatory.

There are other ways to accomplish the same thing by first converting to a .gpx file but the above way is the way I continue to do it from many years ago, was about the only way to do it 10 years ago.

Map Making Support / How to convert KML to OSM or .mp
« Last post by staggart on January 09, 2018, 02:32:13 PM »
I have done a bunch of searching and have found no definitive results.  Short story is I want to take KML files (from google maps) and produce either and OSM file or a .mp (polish) file and then run mkgmap to make maps.  I was wondering if there is an existing application to do this or if there are any code libraries (any language acceptable) to do the same.  I don't necessarily need full-on KML conversion.  I am looking to convert tracks and simple polygons to OSM/mp.  I am about to write code in python to do what I need and would love to save time or get ideas from existing code.  Hopefully, I have missed some obvious way to do this... Thanks.

If you are trying to use a map from here or another third party source, Garmin won't help you. They typically just say they don't support third party maps. ;)

Glad you got it working!

You can use the 64 GB card.  You just need a 3rd party program to format it to FAT32.  Google it and you will see many tutorials.

I think I got a 64 because it was on clearance ...super cheap at best buy.  I will get a smaller card and try.
