OpenOrienteering Mapper 20191108.3

OpenOrienteering Mapper is an orienteering mapmaking program and provides a free alternative to the existing proprietary solution. Its main advantages compared to it are: Open Source: The program is completely free, every programmer can improve it. Cross-platform: The program works on Android, Windows, macOS and Linux. It has been used to produce maps for classical orienteering, MTBO and radio orienteering races. All required functions for drawing maps are implemented and the program works very stable. So it can be considered ready for productive use, although it is like always a good idea to keep backups of your files. We are happy about feedback to the program.

Significant modernization of 3rd-party components (Qt 5.12, PROJ 6, GDAL 3). Note that this also means that some older versions of operating system are no longer supported by Mapper. Windows (7 and up): You can choose between an installer (*.exe) and a portable archive (*.zip). For most modern Windows installations, you should choose the x64 bit packages. The x86 will also run on all Windows desktops but are limited by the 32-bit architecture. macOS (10.12 and up): You may need to run the app via Ctrl+Click the first time, in order to allow it to run despite coming from an "unknown source". Android (4.1 and up): You can try arm64-v8a package on newer devices. Otherwise, the armeabi-v7a package should work for most
