Las Vegas Maps, CES, and GPS Software
Updated 1800 Sunday 31st December 2000
The Las Vegas street map above is based upon those expected to become available, for the whole of the USA, early in 2001. Watch www.gpss.co.uk for news, when this GPSS-compatible mapping is released, for free use with GPSS. The 3.8 Gigabytes of USA Street Level mapping has been processed down to a few hundred megabytes - suitable for upload to this web site and the "free" GPSS CDROMs The map below is a calibrated USGS aerial photograph, downloaded from the Microsoft TerraServer on terraserver.microsoft.com Thanks to Kevin Palivec - a new "GPS Enthusiast" in Texas, for finding this image for me.
The map below is based on LANDSAT low resolution (80m) image + street mapping.
The picture below shows GPSS used with an ARED-generated
map from Microsoft Streets 2000, using the software on my
AutoRoute Page . I believe many
people will still choose to use GPSS in conjuction with
mapping from other CDROMs - particularly when the CDROMs
include their own excellent route planning software.
Mapping such as this, from Microsoft CDROMs, will NOT be made publicly available - for the obvious copyright reasons. This is discussed in some detail on the AutoRoute page - but in summary, it will require you to have purchased a Microsoft "Streets" CDROM for any PC which will use this mapping.
