Version number: 1.8
License type: lppl

Summary description: Download OpenStreetMap maps for use in documents.

Announcement text:

he goal of this package is the simplest possible provision of
map images (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View
are supported). In the simplest case, the specification of an
address is sufficient. The package loads the map using the
\write18 feature, which you must activate to use this package.
The image will be downloaded by an external Lua script. You can
use this script also from the command line.

Changes in v1.8:

- added support for long routes by the gps2gps mode (getmapdl.lua)

  Long routes might be defined by several thousands of way points.
  Encoding these into a encoded polyline would hugely exceed the
  URL length limit of 2048 bytes. The gps2gps mode allows you to
  reduce the number of gps coordinates based on a given bound.

- added multi route support for gps2epl mode

- updated documentation
