#2623 closed defect (fixed)

Yahoo images are VERY unsharp

Reported by: borisC Owned by: cbro@…

Component: merkaartor Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Yahoo images (both WMS & tiled) are unbearably unsharp. This is not simply a minor scaling problem, obviously the zoom level for those images is calculated wrong.

Until this issue is fixed, I strongly suggest to make v0.13.2 available for download again, as this is the last version with usable images.

The attached image is from an area with hires yahoo coverage.

Please attach an equivalent (i.e. same viexport) sceenshot of JOSM for comparison (as I assume you feel it is better there).

Re the download of 13.2, just take any link pointing to 0.14 and replace the 0.14 by 0.13.2. The files are still there.

Sorry, no JOSM, but how about mapzen? (I can't help disliking JOSM ;-)
