    [0.22] Kerbal Maps: Web maps of all bodies. Biomes and text info. (v0.11 Oct 8)


    http://www.kerbalmaps.com

    The Kerbal Maps project is an effort to map all the celestial bodies in Kerbal Space program to give users an overview of the terrain and easter eggs, and provide high resolution digital elevation models to GIS savvy users and plugin developers.

    A note about the new min/max elevation markers: They are not authoritative. The map data is a collection of point samples, so on bodies with a large radius the resolution is not high enough to find the exact highest point. In the worst case scenario it should still to accurate to within 50 meters or so.

    Planned features:
    • Historical version archive (show other versions of KSP)
    • Place markers and share them


    Project sources:


    People using Kerbal Maps data:


    Map Data:
    Download map data from MEGA. All GeoTIFF format, zlib level 9 compressed, 256x256 tiles with no pyramids. Relief and sat images should open with any decent image editor/viewer and/or GIS software. Elevation GTIFFs will require GIS software.

    URL Parameters:
    Parameter Description Possible Values Default
    body The celestial body to display (case insensitive) moho ... eeloo kerbin
    style The style of base layer (case insensitive) sat, color, slope, biome sat
    overlays The overlay layers to show (case insensitive, comma separated) spacecenters, anomalies, poi none
    loc Places a marker on the map with an optional popup message.
    Coordinates in decimal.
    Message is a url encoded string.
    Automatically centers and zooms the map.
    Can have multiple loc parameters in one url
    lat,long,message none
    zoom The starting zoom level.
    Fit shows the max zoom possible to fit the whole map.
    Overrides loc zoom.
    0-5, fit If one or more valid loc then the max to show them all.
    If no markers the max to show the whole map.
    center The coordinates to center the map view on, in decimal.
    Coordinates in decimal.
    Overrides loc center.
    lat,long 0,0

    Examples:



    Changelog:
    0.1 8192x4096 map of Kerbin: satellite, relief, and slope tile layers with 5 zoom levels.
    0.1.1 Markers for Kerbin space centers and anomalies. (no spoilers)
    0.2 Add celestial body, legend, and scale controls. Add Mun and Minmus with 6 zoom levels.
    0.3 Add Duna and Ike with 6 zoom levels.
    0.3.1 Remove unconfirmed fourth anomaly from Duna. [-0.0005, -31.8825]
    0.4 Add Moho, Eve, Gilly, Dres, Laythe, Tylo, Bop, Pol, and Eeloo at 6 zoom levels
    0.5 Updated Kerbin and Mun to 0.21. Kerbin now has 6 zoom levels and the same slope relief scale and legend as the rest of the bodies. Used more exaggerated shading on sat.
    0.6 Updated Moho, Eve, and Duna. Used more exaggerated shading on sat.
    0.7 Updated satellite tiles to have more exaggerated shading for Gilly, Minmus, Ike, Dres, Laythe, Vall, Tylo, Bop, Pol, Eeloo.
    0.8 Updated Bop to 0.21. Restored the ocean masking on Kerbin and Eve.
    0.9 Added min/max elevation markers
    0.10 Added biome color map and cursor hover. Click hover position to switch between decimal and DMS formatting. URL params live on production server.
    0.11 Added textual elevation and slope on hover. Added data loading indicator to show when text data is loading.

    I made interactive web maps of all planets and moons in Kerbal Space Program. Yep, they're ready.

    Check the release thread for updates and discussion.

    Amazing indeed. However, I do belive this thread belongs in the KSP fan-works subsection.

    What IS the copyright status for the kerbin map? I thought it was based on a freeware map the devs got with the terrain generation code...

    It was, though I think the devs completely designed the other planets and moons of the solar system.

    I believe the eventual hope is to have it sufficiently detailed so it can be used for things like landing sites so perhaps the tools and applications forum?
