I know this bug, but I don't have an iPad.
If you test, I try to repair.

Hi all,

Really nice work!!!
But can someone improve the zoom for at least iPad(might be all touchscreen devices). To explain the problem: view the world take on your right bottom Australia between your fingers and zoom in as far as you can. Even though you had Australia between your fingers it doesn't zoom to there. Basically the problem is that two finger zoom takes the map coord of the two fingers and keeps these at all times below the two fingers. How the math formula is when you rotate the fingers, there I am not completely sure but I guess the coordinates below the fingers are always calculated circular to the center coord between the two fingers.

Just see the comparison between Gmaps, Bmaps and KHTML.

Hi all

There is a new github address for the khtml.maplib:

Florian Hengartner and Stefan Kemper from HSR Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil did lots of improvements to the lib.
Even if I didn't merged in the code directly, it was a really great help.
I changed a lot of their code and hope they still like it. There are still many things I have to merge. The most important maybe unittesting.

What's new:

There is a special overlay for handling vector and marker data now. It's based on GeoJSON and should be very easy to use.
The best documentation for that is available at:


There are also new parsers for Kml, Osm, MapCSS.
Basic support for WMS is also available now.

Examples will follow.


For an overview please have a look at my Sotm-eu presentation http://khtml.org/sotm/
There is a navigation pulldown at the sotm logo.

What will come?

Ewald Wieser is working on Markers and should be finished in about one month.

have fun
