Tracing Paper JS – tool for generating JavaScript coordinates from image

Tracing paper is common tool for illustrators and graphic designers.

I wrote a tool which is able to convert clicks on image into coordinates and use it in JavaScript.

Launch Tracing Paper JS in full screen mode

Just click at the image and tool will record set of coordinates as JavaScript code.

It’s simple app written in JavaScript with AngularJS.

Source code is available at Github: https://github.com/georgik/tracing-paper-js

How to stitch maps by Photoshop

Photoshop is very handy tool when you need to stitch several images together. It is also possible to stitch maps from smaller images into one bigger. This is useful when you’re planning trip somewhere and you do not have a paper map. You can create screenshots from OpenStreetMap and stitch them together in Photoshop.

Step 1. Create screenshots of maps and store these files it into directory. Images should overlap. Use PNG format to avoid blur in images.

Windows users can use Snipping tool. Mac users can use Command + F4.
