Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

[[File:StuartsSlippyMap1.png|thumb|Stuart pushed some changes to fgdata with OpenStreetMap, OpenAIP and VFRMap layers for the Canvas Map Layer system, which can be seen on the canvas map dialog. They use a generic Slippy Map OverlayLayer Map Layer. Additional web-based mapping can be trivially added by creating a new lcontroller. See Nasal/Canvas/map/OpenAIP.lcontroller for an example.Stuart also added a Web Mercator Projection to the Canvas Map support.The wiki will be updated shortly.<ref>{{cite web |url = https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?p=319545#p319545 |title = <nowiki> Re: Canvas G1000 </nowiki> |author = <nowiki> stuart </nowiki> |date = Sep 28th, 2017 |added = Sep 28th, 2017 |script_version = 0.40 }}</ref>]]
 
 
 
=== October 2017 ===
Stuart committed some changes to update the Select Airport dialog to use Canvas MapStructure Layers to display airport information, rather than the now deprecated map layers. The change should be largely transparent to end users - the only significant change is that your can display navigation symbols. This is all part of a long-term effort to provide the building blocks for a Garmin G1000 - these layers could be used for the airport display on the MFD, and could easily be combined with the APS layer to show a moving aircraft.<ref>{{cite web

=== September 2017 ===
Stuart added some new Nasal Canvas MapLayers to support Slippy Maps, as used by most web-based mapping services such as openstreetmap. This allows us to display sectional charts (for the US - vfrmap.com), and airspace information (courtesy of openaip.org), as well as a openstreetmap data. The canvas Map dialog has been updated to support these layers. Map data is retrieved over http and cached locally.<ref>{{cite web
