Completed

Please, add altitude tag in "Quick WWW Bookmarks".In my case - to call http://www.heavens-above.com/ with right parameters.


And, please, don't remove this great feature!

Good day Evgeny,

I'm glad that someone this feature use :). This idea = quick action, implemented. Just be careful that elevation will use offline HGT files, in case, they won't be available, Locus Map sends '0.0' value.


EDIT: btw. if this feature will work fine for you, feel free to share any useful configuration that you think it worth to included directly into Locus Map for other users, thanks

Download HGT-file

Sorry, Menion :) I grabbed URLs from Locus, because other methods for download current area in Locus is too boring.


  1. locus-actions://http/maps.melda.ru/hgt?lat={mapLat}&lon={mapLon}

Now it fails with empty area (.empty files), but I want to improve this.

Hmm nice, thanks ( mainly funny method how to get HGT files ... ).


@Michal, if you will want, check what may be useful for user, I'll gladly add it into current "favorites". Just need name, url templace and 96x96 px icon, thanks ;)

And can you give me full list of available hgt-files? :) For return .empty if requested file not in this list.


(technically I can full scan your appspot storage, but I think, ~60k requests - this is very, very bad idea)

Surprise me that you are able to get Url to our HGT file storage, are you?


List of "empty" files ... you have exact copy of our HGT files on your server? If now and you use some own files, then it is possible that you may have files for areas we don't and opposite, so some list of files may not match your list of files ...

My script generate locus-action xml for downloading from your server :)

Hi Evgeny,


there is a list of valid hgt files that are stored in our storage.

Hm. Sorry for my english. I think, we don't understand each other.

I didn't want to surprise you (it's your great mission - surprise us by new Locus functions :)

I want to ask you:

1) can I use (and give to friends) this way to download hgt-file in Locus (== use script, that links to your appspot storage)?

2) (if â„–1 - yes :) I want to improve this script: make it work good with areas, where no hgt file exists. Now in this case my script links to not existing file on your server and Locus can't download it and show error. Right way: my script must generate link to virtual zip with ".empty" file on my server (and generate this zip on the fly). But when I generate xml for locus-action, I don't know, is there hgt file on appspot or not. So, I ask you: can you give me list of existing hgt files?

I think, that grabbing this list by 60k requests to your appspot - it's bad idea and I will not do so.

Petr, thanks!


Now only first question :)

Don't overuse it and expect that system may change in future (as we are currently rewriting our whole AppEngine system).

Ok, thanks!


And what do you think about another solution - simple native way to download hgt-file for current location in Locus?

I know only long, boring way: long-tap, tap on hint, add point, elevation - get, download, waiting for done, three dots at top-right corner, discard.

That's only cause, why I make own solution.

(or it's better to ask this in new idea ticket?)

We have a better solution. Purchase any map in Locus Store ( LoMap for example ) and download all necessary HGT files that cover map area with one tap ;).

Oh! Great! Now, I don't use vector maps, but with it's price (very low) - this is good way for hgt mass download. Thanks!
