The Cartograph app supports offline vector maps, offline raster maps, slippy tile online maps, and web map service (WMS) maps.

All map types share the following common options:

  • Map name: The map name displayed in the Cartograph app.
  • Map description: A description of the map.
  • Attribution: Attribution (for instance license) of the map.
  • Default latitude/longitude: The default map position.
  • Default zoom: The default map zoom level.
  • Min./Max. zoom: The minimum and maximum zoom levels supported by the map.
  • Supports caching (read-only): If check then the map type supports caching.
  • Cache size: The cache size for the map given in the number of tiles. This option is not available for offline raster maps.
  • Cache file name (read-only): The internal name of the cache file.
  • Delete cache file: Deletes the cache file.
  • Map file size (read-only): The file size of the map file. This field is only visible for offline maps.
