Prepare maps for your holidays, your walking, your bike trips, your geocaching... You can next print them or use them with your GPS!

If you think that maps found on the Internet are either not precise, or cover too small areas, MapCapt is for you!

This utility automatically scrolls, captures, assembles and saves maps (or other window content) from a Web page to a bitmap file, even if scrolling is controlled by custom controls. It can be used for example with maps.google.com, www.viamichelin.com, www.randmcnally.com, www.geoportail.fr, maps.live.com, map.search.ch...

How to use?

MapCapt has three different capture methods.

  1. Click / Drag control (mouse).
    The easiest method, to be used when the map moves when maintaining mouse button down on the map while moving the mouse.
    • Most of the time, you can leave the four error parameters to 0.
    • Check 'With spacebar down' when the map moves only when the spacebar of your keyboard is down.
  2. Screen arrows control (mouse).
    Onscreen controlTo be used with onscreen controller. Tip: a classic window scrollbar can be considered as an onscreen controller.
    This method needs more parameterization.
    • Press the button 3 and next, click on the control which scrolls the map towards east. Repeat this step for the west, south and north controls (buttons 4, 5 and 6).
    • MapCapt also needs to know the amount of pixels for each scroll. Choose the button 7 and click next on a reference point in the map (in the bottom-right area of the map). This position must be precise, use the zoom window.
    • By pressing the button 8, MapCapt will scroll the map once towards east and once towards south.
    • Press the button 9 and click on the same reference point (which has scrolled); use once again the zoom window. The displacement is now computed.
  3. Keyboard control (arrow keys).
    KeyboardTo be used when map moves with the arrow keys of the keyboard.
    This method needs more parameterization.
    • MapCapt also needs to know the amount of pixels for each scroll. Choose the button 7 and click next on a reference point in the map (in the bottom-right area of the map). This position must be precise, use the zoom window.
    • By pressing the button 8, MapCapt will scroll the map once towards east and once towards south.
    • Press the button 9 and click on the same reference point (which has scrolled); use once again the zoom window. The displacement is now computed.
