1. iOS 12 and macOS Mojave Compatibility

    As of September 24, 2018, Apple has released macOS High Sierra (version 10.14).

    ClueTrust is unaware of any problems with the current shipping version of Cartographica (1.4.8). All functionality tested is working and we have not experienced any issues with internal testing.

    In addition, we've created a new beta of LoadMyTracks that addresses some recent issues with some devices and versions of macOS.

    Please make sure that you are using the most recent versions of Cartographica (1.4.8) or LoadMyTracks before reporting a bug when running macOS High Sierra.

  2. iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra Compatibility

    In June, Apple announced pre-release availaibility of iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra (10.13). ClueTrust is working to verify complete compatibility with these versions prior to their release this fall.

    However, as a rule, we caution against the use of pre-release operating systems for crucial work. Although we are unaware of any problems today that hamper the use of either Cartographica or CartoMobile, it is always possible to experience crashing and data loss with operating systems that have not been fully tested.

    With that said, if you choose to experiment with iOS 11 or macOS High Seirra and run …

    The USGS has announced that the National Atlas will be taken out of service as of September 30, 2014. According to the detailed product availability information, much of the data will be available via the to-be-enhanced National Map system, or as data downloads "at no cost" from Earth Explorer".

    This transition appears to be mostly a resource realignment (basically reducing the number of sources and web sites they need to maintain.

    In addition, the USGS has also announced that "[L]ater this year we will deliver these new framework datasets at one million-scale: networked hydrography, updated streams and waterbodies, streamflow …

  4. Using CartoMobile to Enhance Historic Sites

    The United States National Park Service maintains and controls more than 84.4 million acres of park land in the United States. Much of the land is historical in nature and has been preserved for future generations to enjoy and learn about the various parks. The use of the parks is as varied as the many historical and ecological characteristics that define each unique location. One of the most popular types of parks within the United States are National Military Parks. These parks are typically located on the sites of famous battlefields and other important historical and strategic locations around …

  5. Cartographica 1.4 and beyond

    At ClueTrust, we're proud and excited to deliver version 1.4 of Cartographica into the hands of our customers.

    This has been a long journey from the last major feature release to this one, and although we have added a lot of new functionality to the software and made many improvements, it became clear to us months ago that something was going to have to change for us to be more responsive to the needs of the market and our customers.

    To that end, we have been bolstering our automated testing capabilities, enhancing our hands-on testing regime, and changing how …

  6. Using MapQuest satellite imagery

    MapQuest has recently made available, through information on their developer website, access to their tile servers for OpenStreetMap-style tiles of satellite imagery (mostly from government sources) and their street databases.   Because both CartoMobile and Cartographica support customized OpenStreetMap-style tile sources, you can now add these to your maps.
