Description:

Release 0.6 of the Marble Desktop Globe.

Source Code / Binary Release


Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth: You can pan and zoom around and you can look up places and roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia article.

Of course it's also possible to measure distances between locations or watch the current cloud cover. Marble offers different thematic maps: A classroom-style topographic map, a satellite view, street map, earth at night and temperature and precipitation maps. All maps include a custom map key, so it can also be used as an educational tool for use in class-rooms. For educational purposes you can also change date and time and watch how the starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change.

For developers Marble is a light weight generic geographical map component for use in a Qt 4.x / C++ application. It is provided as a library, a QWidget and a KDE 4 KPart and hence can easily get integrated with KDE 4 or Qt 4 applications. By default MarbleWidget shows the earth as a sphere but doesn't make use of any hardware acceleration (No OpenGL).


For more information please visit:

http://edu.kde.org/marble

Download: Please have a look at:

http://edu.kde.org/marble/download.php


Current features include:

* Marble uses a minimal free dataset that can be used offline. Currently the total amount of data that is meant to be shipped is about 10 MB.
* Marble doesn't use OpenGL or 3D hardware acceleration. It just uses Arthur as a 2D painting backend. Depending on your hardware and the maps being displayed framerate is approximately 5-20 fps.
* Marble uses vector as well as bitmap data: Currently it uses the MWDB II data combined with SRTM.
* Different Projections: Globe, Flat Map, Mercator
* Marble should start up almost instantly. Currently it "cold" starts fully within 2-5 seconds. On each subsequent start it takes about one second.
* Uses KML-Import to display places (Google Earths open format to store placemarks), Basic GPX support.
* Cities Down to 12000 inhabitants that you can click on using the mouse. Highest Mountains of each continent. Automatic Placemark label placement.
* Several Map Themes: Atlas, Satellite View, OpenStreetMap, Night Map, Temperature and Precipitation Maps.
* Sun Shading, Real-Time Clouds
* Dynamic Coordinate Grid
* Measure Tool
* Basic Wikipedia integration
* Starry Sky Plugins

* And many, many more ...

 Kubuntu Feisty

Can someone please make a working Kubuntu Feisty package? There was one yesterday on GetDeb, but that one didn't work unfortunately. It is now even removed from GetDeb, so far I can see.

Hi,

packages are being worked upon. Today the debian packager has uploaded the first package to Debian unstable. However there are still issues with it which we are sorting out at the moment. Also work is going on on providing packages for the other plattforms. I'll link the binary packages once issues have been sorted out ( I estimate about 2-3 days at most ).

Thank you.

Meanwhile thereis a new version (0.4.1?) available on GetDeb: http://www.getdeb.net/release.php?id=1297

...and that works!

Very great and very promising. Maybe dragging the surface can become a bit more smoother, but I like it now even more than Google Earth, Worldwind or whatsoever :-).

One more thing.

If I watch to the map of the Netherlands, the cities are not situated perfectly. They are a bit to far to the north. You can easily see this with checking the area in and around the IJsselmeer (the big lake in the center of NL).

Another thing.

In the build I have (from GetDeb) the legend-pane is empty. Maybe this had to do with the build.

Yes, that must be a build problem indeed. It doesn't happen when built from source or with other packages.

 New version?

Hi there,
would be nice, if you only update, when there's a new version available. Or you should change version to 0.4.x, if there are any fixes.

Greetings

Well, it just happens at times that I forget to "uncheck" the announcement Checkbox when I just add another binary package. The last time I added the Windows package of Marble.

Ah, ok I guess it's due to Marble usually being built as part of KDE-EDU. Usually for a KDE build we'd expect that people check out all of KDE-Edu and build according to KDE4 build instructions. This release is mostly about the Qt version. See

http://edu.kde.org/marble/obtain.php

We'll try to fix the issue though.

Im looking this great software for mandriva 2007.1 (aka spring) but it seems to be dropped off :-(


KDE is made for users....

What can you give to others?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
