Hello,
thanks for your great work with MGMaps. I was wondering whether there is an easy way to use the maps provided at URL
http://www.jnto.go.jp/map/eng_map/
I did some digging, and it would seem that the server and command for that site can be read in the file
http://www.jnto.go.jp/map/shr/js/libmap.js
The server seems to be defined on the first screen in the line starting with this.MapServURL, and the command at the other ocurrence of MapServURL.
Regards

Thanks for the links... this seems to use a different map projection (I'm not sure, seems to be latlon/equirectangular instead of the mercator projection used in google maps and mgmaps), also it uses different zoom levels and a different tile x/y numbering. So I don't see any quick/easy way to integrate it in MGMaps or gMapMaker.

Thanks anyway. I am just back from the trip, and your app proved extremely useful. I also wanted to advertise the maps of the JNTO, as they are the only ones I came across that have a consistent English transcription mode. I used offline maps of The Big Provider That Does Not Want Its Maps To Be Used Wink, since they have at least partial transcription, on a Nokia 5800XM. Works great, although I saw a hangup many times after several hours of continuous work, had to switch off the phone, on one or two occasions it even switched off of its own will. I did not manage to identify the circumstances that lead to problems, sorry. I also saw something most strange: the bar with menu, plus, minus and target buttons sometimes got much bigger than usual.
Again, thanks for your great app.
