Download Page for Canada, Greenland & Mexico
Updated 1530 Sunday 1st July 2007
Do NOT run these downloaded EXE from your Internet browser. Put them in the GPSS folder then run from file Explorer to add the files.
These maps and sounds for Canada provide a 'starter pack' which should enable most of you to start doing something useful with GPSS in your country. The data was originally uploaded for use by Tony Wallace, Mathieu Godin, Frank King, Naush Ladha and Tim Rhind - and anyone running GPSS 'on the road' in Canada. Some of these people are on the Canadian Links Page Maps and sounds are provided for all Canada, but with more detail across all Newfoundland, between Toronto and Quebec, and Calgary to Vancouver.
CANADA.EXE is a self extracting file and will expand into
approximately 6 MB of BMP, WAV and other files for use in the GPSS
Microsoft USA Trips 2001 has good mapping for Canada, and can be used with GPSS, after adding mapping from this page. For more information see the Microsoft CD Page
(old) Information on these facilities are on the CANADA Page
You can make GPSS speak French by visiting the LANGUAGE Page
These 2 maps and 41 sounds are for all our "GPS" friends in and around Ottawa
- particularly Russ Gladden who upgraded the WAW file.
A quick demo of the mapping is in
OTTAWA.NME and some real GPS data is in OTTAWA1.NME
- which starts just outside the more detailed map.
Please take care when using GPSS 'on the road'.
These 4 maps and 21 sounds cover Montreal and are for Jamie Morehouse, George Hager,
Akhtar Mirza, their friends - and others using GPSS here.
A demonstration is in MONTREAL.NME. Please take care 'on the road' !
These 2 maps and 28 sounds in and around the City of Winnipeg are for
Ken Kroeker, his friends, and anyone here with a GPS. A demonstration
is in WINNIPEG.NME and Ken's real GPS data, used to calibrate the map
is in KENKR1.NME. More accurate maps would be needed for reliable
'matching' with the road - but it should work, 'after a fashion' :-)
Please take care 'on the road', Ken.
These 79 maps and 29 sounds were uploaded for Akhtar, his friends, and
anyone else using GPSS here. A demonstration is in ALBESASK.NME
ALBESASK.EXE holds most of the data, including the essential ALBESASK.WAW
but ALBESAS2.EXE has the last 9 maps, to keep everything floppy disk sized.
Please take care, and do not rely on these maps or GPS for navigation.
ALBASASK was corrected on 13th Oct to add missing ALBESASK.WAW.
Tanks to supply of some recorded GPS data collected by Warner - you can plot the with Control-A WARNER.NME DRAW - we now have much better calibrated mapping for Vancouver. WAW and NME and DES files corrected.
This 1 map and 28 sounds cover the North Vancouver to Langley area.
They are for use by Sukru, Warner, their friends, and anyone here with a GPS.
A demonstration is in VANCOUVE.NME but the guidance part of the demonstration
is near the end. You may want to modify the text file VANCOUVE.WAW which
controls spoken description of position. e.g. to make some landmarks more accurate,
or to add your own. Those travelling south may want to
download the Seattle mapping from the USA Download page.
Please take great care when using GPSS 'on the road'.
These 2 maps and 17 sounds cover Toronto and west to London.
They are for Ted Hooton, his friends, and anyone with a GPS.
Thank Ted, for helping to calibrate the very old Toronto map.
A demonstration is in TORONTO.NME. Take care 'on the road' Ted !
These 24 maps and 22 sounds are for Larry McKnight, his friends, and
others with GPS.
Take care Larry !
These 51 maps and 3 sounds were uploaded for Chuck Slade
and his friends using GPSS in Northern latitudes. The mapping
covers all Canada north of latitude 60 degrees, with a little
more detail around Resolute. No one has used GPSS "for real"
this far north - so please look out for errors in the software
or mapping. A demonstration is provided in CANANOR.NME
Roberto from Rome, Italy, flying into Canada soon,
reminded me that this area had been missed :-)
These 47 maps and 8 sounds cover the area.
A demonstration is in NEWFOUND.NME and two WAW
files are used, one for the mainland and one for the island.
Here is some more detail for Mexico City, produced with the help of Julio
and his GPS.
2 maps and 4 sounds. A demonstration is in MEXICITY.NME.
Please take care 'on the road' Julio !
