I would like to see the functionality of the Export OSM XML vector data command added to the script language. I Would also like to see, in both cases, the ability to control which tags are created from feature attributes.

    I've updated the EXPORT_VECTOR command to support using OSM as an export format. What kind of control of attributes would you want?

    I have placed new builds with the latest changes at the links below:

    32-bit: http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/downloads/global-mapper/global_mapper15.zip
    64-bit: http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/downloads/global-mapper/global_mapper15_64bit.zip

    Simply download the .zip file for the build that you are using and extract over your existing installation files. The likely locations to extract to are as follows:

    32-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\GlobalMapper15
    64-bit: C:\Program Files\GlobalMapper15_64bit

    It amazes me how fast you are able to add features and fix bugs!

    The software seems to make some decisions about what tags to generate. For example, a <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/> seems to be associated with one of my other attributes (MP_TYPE = 0x03)? I set the first 7 attributes in my GM workspace and the software creates an additional <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/>, effectively overwriting my setting of <tag k="maxspeed" v="15 mph"/>.

    <tag k="name" v="Club"/>
    <tag k="routeparam" v="1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0"/>
    <tag k="mp_type" v="0x03"/>
    <tag k="mp_bit_level" v="18"/>
    <tag k="kml_html_desc_text" v="Snowmobile Club Trail"/>
    <tag k="highway" v="tertiary"/>
    <tag k="maxspeed" v="15 mph"/>
    <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/>

    The GM software also seems to create a <tag k="waterway" v="river"/> associated with what a assume is MP_TYPE = 0x1F which in my case is effecting the rendering of <tag k="highway" v="secondary"/> that I desire.

    To answer your question, is there a way to provide a list of feature attributes that should NOT get tags created? In the first example above, I would chose to disable the creation of tags for the following attributes:

    routeparam
    mp_type
    mp_bit_level
    kml_html_desc_text
    <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/> However I would want my setting of "maxspeed" to result in a tag.

    So there would need to be a way to suppress some of the auto-generated keys such as waterway and maxspeed.

    Not sure if this is also an added capability but I would want to use the POLYGON_CROP_FILE with the export - will be cropping both point and line features. I'll give it a try with the update.

    Sorry for several posts... In my case, if I were able to provide a list of attributes FOR tag creation that would be a short list and achieve what I need.

    The EXPORT OSM from a script using POLYGON_CROP_FILE worked like a champ.

    Thanks for great support.

    Hi - will the customized control of attributes be something you can release soon or should I start to look for a work-around?

    I've updated the EXPORT_VECTOR command to you can provide multiple ATTR_TO_DELETE parameters, one for each attribute to ignore. So you can add ATTR_TO_DELETE="MP_TYPE" ATTR_TO_DELETE="RouteParam" ATTR_TO_DELETE="MP_BIT_LEVEL" etc.

    I have placed new builds with the latest changes at the links below:

    32-bit: http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/downloads/global-mapper/global_mapper15.zip
    64-bit: http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/downloads/global-mapper/global_mapper15_64bit.zip

    Simply download the .zip file for the build that you are using and extract over your existing installation files. The likely locations to extract to are as follows:

    32-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\GlobalMapper15
    64-bit: C:\Program Files\GlobalMapper15_64bit

    Thank you Mike,

    That's very helpful for eliminating clutter. However the issue that is causing me to perform some kind of manual post-editing is the auto-generated attributes, in particular maxspeed is over-riding my setting of maxspeed. If I specify ATTR_TO_DELETE="MAXSPEED", it deletes mine and still creates the auto-generated one. The auto-generation of <tag k="waterway" v="river"/> seems to have gone away.

    In the example below, the blue <tag k="maxspeed" v="15 mph"/> is my setting and the red <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/> is auto-generated.

    <nd ref='-6076154'/>
    <nd ref='-6076155'/>
    <nd ref='-6076156'/>
    <nd ref='-6076157'/>
    <nd ref='-5955919'/>
    <tag k="name" v="Club"/>
    <tag k="routeparam" v="1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0"/>
    <tag k="mp_type" v="0x03"/>
    <tag k="mp_bit_level" v="18"/>
    <tag k="kml_html_desc_text" v="Snowmobile Club Trail"/>
    <tag k="highway" v="tertiary"/>
    <tag k="maxspeed" v="15 mph"/>
    <tag k="maxspeed" v="20"/>
    </way>

    I stand corrected. After additional testing, if I do not specify ATTR_TO_DELETE="MAXSPEED", the auto-generated tag is suppressed and my setting is retained.

    The auto-generated "maxspeed" is generated from the RouteParam attribute. So to get rid of that you would add ATTR_TO_DELETE="ROUTEPARAM" to remove that attribute from the feature and get none of the auto-generated stuff. However I did also change the auto-generated stuff so that it should no longer replace a pre-existing attribute value, it will only add a new one or replace an existing empty value. Or at least that's how it should be working now.

    Thanks,

    I applied the ATTR_TO_DELETE command to EXPORT_VECTOR TYPE=GPX, perhaps I am not using it correctly here. I am trying to suppress all but the <name> tag.

    <wpt lat="44.470810" lon="-71.182693">
    <ele>346.708</ele>
    <name>Gold House Pizza</name>
    <desc>Trail Accessible Food</desc>
    <sym>Food</sym>
    </wpt>

    <trkpt lat="43.502235" lon="-70.962074">
    <ele>147.36</ele>
    <time>2013-07-14T17:15:32Z</time>
    </trkpt>


    My script has ATTR_TO_DELETE="ELEVATION" ATTR_TO_DELETE="<Feature Desc>" ATTR_TO_DELETE="SYM" ATTR_TO_DELETE="TIME" ATTR_TO_DELETE="START_TIME" ATTR_TO_DELETE="END_TIME"

    The ATTR_TO_DELETE tag only applies to the OSM XML export, it doesn't work for all of them. Maybe it would make more sense to have an EDIT_VECTOR call before the export and just delete the attributes you don't want directly from the features.

    Yes that makes sense. Any way to suppress some of the auto generated ones like <ele> <desc> <sym> <time>?

    <ele>346.708</ele>
    <desc>Trail Accessible Food</desc>
    <sym>Food</sym>
    </wpt>

    <trkpt lat="43.502235" lon="-70.962074">
    <ele>147.36</ele>
    <time>2013-07-14T17:15:32Z</time>
    </trkpt>

    I've added support for additional attributes for the GPX export from a script. They are now:

    GPX Fields

    EXPORT_AREAS - specifies that area features should be exported to GPX files as track lines. Use EXPORT_AREAS=YES to enable.
    EXPORT_ATTRS - specifies whether or not all feature attributes for waypoints will be included as tags. Use EXPORT_ATTRS=YES to enable export.
    EXPORT_DESC - specifies that <desc> tags will be exported for waypoints. Use EXPORT_DESC=NO to disable.
    EXPORT_ELEV - specifies whether or not a <ele> (elevation) value should be generated for each waypoints/trackpoing. Use EXPORT_ELEV=NO to disable.
    EXPORT_SYM - specifies that <sym> (symbol) tags will be exported for waypoints. Use EXPORT_SYM=NO to disable.
    EXPORT_TIME - specifies that <time> tags will be exported for waypoints and track points when available. Use EXPORT_TIME=NO to disable.

    I have placed new builds with the latest changes at the links below:

    32-bit: http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/downloads/global-mapper/global_mapper15.zip
