public land ownership in the Moab, UT area

We’ve got a new release ready — version 5.54. Pretty excited to have a new “Land Ownership” layer in the software. This information can be key to planning adventures — especially new routes. Or for hunting access. The colors on the above map are the standard ones for BLM, USFS, NPS, state, local and private land.

You can download these tiles directly in TopoFusion (using the map type dropdown in the upper right) or go to the Map Menu and select “Blend Land Ownership.” This will add the ownership data to the current map type you are looking at — using the combo blend feature in TopoFusion to blend the two map types together. Super useful!

As one who camps and travels on public land I’m very happy to have this ability. Good to know when you are actually on public land.

There are a number of other updates, including some existing map types being restored or improved.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Thanks!

elevation tiles on Parkview Mtn, Continental Divide Trail

Version 5.51 is now out, which restores access to critical piece of TopoFusion’s magic: Elevation Data!

We are extremely lucky to be able to continue pulling data from a number of public domain and free data sources. That means that TopoFusion can still be a ‘one time’ pay type of software with no recurring costs — as it has been since 2002 — 16 years!

The time may come in the future when in order to continue with key features like USGS topo tiles and elevation DEM data, that we either need to charge a yearly subscription or users pay for subscriptions to other map servers. But that day is not today! We’re going to do our best to keep it that way.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Got a new version out that fixes a bug that has been quite mysterious. If anyone out there has done much multi-threaded programming, you know how random certain problems can be. In this case I could not reproduce the problem on my main development machine no matter how hard I tried, and despite near daily use of the software (Yes, I am still the primary user of TopoFusion — use it all the time).

Finally, it started occurring, for unknown reasons, while using the WiFi at the Salida Public Library. From there, the game was afoot!

The error cropped up with an “SSL refcount error” then oftentimes a crash in the Downloader Thread. Turns out the documentation on the OpenSSL library is pretty lacking, but I believe the bug is vanquished! Cheers! Applause!

Also restored in this version are OpenTopoMaps, Juicy Trails and Open Cycle Maps.

I’ve finally given up on MSRMaps.com (formerly Terraserver) coming back online. That was the server that got TopoFusion off the ground, but it seems at last to be dead. RIP Terraserver, thanks for all the many maps and adventures!

As a result, the software has been simplified to remove those tilesets so as to not cause confusion to new users. If you have a bunch of those maps cached, they’ll still work, but you may need to enable by editing the TopoFusion.ini file and changing UseMSRMaps=0 to UseMSRMaps=1

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Thanks!

3D view of the Grand Canyon, South Rim

We’ve output a quick revision to the software, in response to some server changes. Elevation data is a key component of TopoFusion — for 3D views, shaded relief, adding to tracks, trail grade computation. The server requires the use of HTTPS now, which we added in the previous release. This release restores access to Elevation and the USGS imagery tiles.

So if you’ve been having issues downloading maps lately (getting “TopoFusion is having trouble…” messages), please update to the latest version. Also a reminder that you can get more reliable access to Mapquest based tiles (such as Open Aerial, Mapquest Street) by getting your own (free) map API key so you can download 15,000 tiles per month. We are still seeing outages on this every month on the default key. You can get a key here http://tinyurl.com/gvcuqg8 And the key is added in (Options->Preferences->Tiles->Mapquest API Key).

This version also adds some waypoint symbol exporting features for KMLs. Waypoint symbols that show up in TF now work when opened in google maps, google earth, etc.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Thanks!

New 2017 Splash Screen – Manipouri Lake, Fjordlands National Park, New Zealand

The latest revision of TopoFusion, version 5.40, has been released. We added support for secure tiles and secure transfer to/from map servers. Several servers are now requiring https in order to transfer tiles, and it also means that third parties cannot snoop on what you are doing.

As a consequence, several map servers that have not been working in TopoFusion for the last month or so (while TopoFusion author Scott Morris was away in New Zealand, see pic above), have been restored. This includes US Topo, Color, and Open Topo Maps. The latter, we should mention, has been expanded to worldwide coverage and has some nice tiles (previously it only covered Europe).

So if you’ve been having issues downloading maps lately, please update to the latest version. Also a reminder that to get more reliable access to Mapquest based tiles (such as Open Aerial, Mapquest Street) we recommend getting your own (free) map API key so you can download 15,000 tiles per month.

tracksdialog

We’ve released version 5.30 of the software, featuring a number of enhancements to both the Pro and Basic version. A few days ago Mapquest started requiring an API for use of their mapping services. Previous versions of the software started showing an error tile. This update restores access to the Open Aerial and Mapquest OSM layers.

The ‘file properties’ dialog has seen a revamp, such that individual tracks within a file are now listed, and can be deleted, highlighted and drilled down into. (See dialog above). This has been a weakness of the software before. It should be easier to work with files containing multiple tracks now.

Some improvements to the elevation functions have been added. There’s a ‘smooth elevation’ function in Climbing Analysis and File Properties. This is useful for noisy data, processing with a box filter of width 5.

Speaking of box filters, the default climbing algorithm used in TF now employs a filter. This is something that is long overdue for being dealt with. Now that most people collect data at 1 point per second (or greater!) the possibility for error in computing climbing numbers has risen since the humble release of the software some 14 years ago. We changed to include some basic filtering by default, to bring our numbers more in line with popular ‘apps’ like Strava and Garmin Connect. Climbing Analysis is still there and has received a bit of an update, as well. It’s still a great place to look at different ways of computing that all important number — how much vert did I log?

Lots of other small fixes — we definitely recommend updating!

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Thanks!

2016 Pro splash screen – Alexis Ault, bikepacking near Castle Peak, Idaho. Sadly now closed to bikes due to Wilderness designation

We’ve put the final touches on version 5.20 of the software. We had a nice suggestion from a user that works in trail design — how about a way to quickly measure grade (steepness) while drawing out a track? Brilliant idea — why didn’t we come up with it earlier?

TopoFusion author Scott Morris just spent a couple weeks doing a trail design / survey on a re-route of the Arizona National Scenic Trail, outside of the town of Kelvin. Measuring grade and not exceeding tolerances (like 10%!) is key to designing and building sustainable trail.

Even after many years of use, the software still continues to get a little bit better with age. Thanks to everyone that has used the software over the years, and especially those that have offered their feedback.

In this release we’ve also brought back the Juicy Trails tileset, fixed some simplifying/splining issues and added a clarification for the MSRtopo maps (old style Topo 4M, etc). We still believe that server will continue to be up, but it’s proving quite unreliable these days. So it is really better to move toward using MyTopo instead.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

Thanks!

TF’s address search

Version 5.13 of the software is now out. We’ve brought back the mapquest/nominatim address search function. A week or so ago it was disabled since mapquest now requires an API key to use it. Every version 5.13+ of TopoFusion will now work with our API key.

The Map menu has be reconfigured to be more intuitive — it’s grouped by map type. Thanks to TF user Wayne for the excellent suggestion on that one.

We’ve also fixed a couple of long standing and very difficult bugs — one is a persistent one that affects crashes on startup. We’ve counseled lots of folks over the years to use the “Reset TF to default settings” option in the Start Menu in order to get their copy of TF to be able to start up. That should not be needed nearly as much now!

Another is in saving out the ‘live track’ in Live Tracking. We believe intermittent (and system-dependent) issues should now be a thing of the past. Thanks to the several users that helped us debug that one.

There’s a new button in the Download Tracks dialog that helps you determine if you’ve already downloaded a day’s ride/run/hike/drive/whatever — it’ll highlight files that are not in your logbook — meaning you haven’t downloaded it yet.

In other news,msrmaps.com, the old Terraserver, has been serving up maps again. The server can be a little finicky yet, but maps are coming down.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.

v5.11 new 2015 splash screen

We’ve released version 5.11 of our software — both the Pro and Basic versions. This mostly improves on a number of areas in the software. Notably, it fixes access to my-Topo tiles, and adds a new European topo map tileset, courtesy of OpenTopoMap.org. We’ve made things a little faster, added support for Fenix units, fixed a long-standing and seemingly un-squishable bug in the insert points command, among other things.

We are still seeing issues with msrmaps.com, the old Terraserver, which has been returning a 503 (service unavailable) error for the last week. We do expect that server to return to working order, but it appears to be an extended downtime right now.

author Scott Morris, thru-rode the CDT, summer 2014

TopoFusion author Scott Morris is back from the trail, after a 4+ month break from the computer. He spent the summer cycling and hiking the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDNST) along with his partner Eszter Horanyi. It’s believed they are the first people to traverse the trail from end to end by mountain bike.

Scott is back on the computer now and a new version of TopoFusion is out, version 5.06. This revision updates a number of server access methods, so if you are getting lots of stuck ‘downloading’ tiles, it’s time to update! It also fixes a number of bugs, including one that has been longstanding and difficult to squash. See below for full revision details.

To read more about “CDTBike” — traversing the CDT by bike, head over to Scott’s CDT 2014 Journal for full journal entries, tons of photos, and of course, some GPX data.

Thanks!
