Open Source Roadmap software?
« on: September 20, 2018, 06:24:23 PM »

Are there any open source mapping programs out there? Not looking for GIS, but something like Streets and Trips.

You mean Open Street Map, but offline?

KDE's Marble seems like what you're looking for. I think it still downloads data (e.g. OSM) over the Internet. I'm not sure if there's anything that doesn't these days; it's simply more efficient to download data from a server as it's needed that to push out massive data updates.

I poorly worded that question. Marble looks awesome. Am installing it now.

I downloaded Marble. It's not capable of doing anything except crash.

Just noticed it crashes frequently.
