Cartographer is a modular, lightweight, and efficient framework for manipulation of the world map.
  • Battlegrounds : allows viewing of battlegrounds outside of the zone.
  • Coordinates : adds coordinates to the bottom of the world map of the player and the cursor.
  • Foglight : Shows unexplored areas on the map. replacement for MozzFullWorldMap or Unexplorer. Much more efficient, though.
  • Group Colors : turns all your party's and your raid's POIs into circles colored based on class, and shows a number on them based on their raid group.
  • Guild Positions : show all guild members that also have Cartographer.
  • Instance Loot : shows loot tables when you click a boss note
  • Instance Maps : shows maps of instances.
  • Instance Notes : adds boss notes and such to instance maps.
  • Look 'n' Feel : allows you to change the transparency, position, and scale of the world map.
  • Notes : lets you put notes on the map, similar to MapNotes.
  • POI : store notes that city guards point you to.
  • Professions : automatically tracks herbs, minerals, and treasure.
  • Waypoints : allow you to make waypoints and have a big arrow point the way.
  • Zone Info : on hovering over a zone, it will show the levels of the zone, the instances in the zone, their levels, and the number of men the instance is made for (e.g. 5-man, 40-man).

Latest release of Cartographer does that already, so use that. Love that feature, will not go back to Gatherer. Thanks, cknight!

One thing

Switching from Metamap/Gatherer all I really feel I'm missing is the ability to have the list of bosses, in the instance I'm viewing, to choose from, instead of just the mapnotes.
Metamap has a list of bosses in the right side and the loot on the left.
Also...how come I have to click every item on every boss to see which items are there?

Cartographer_Import does not work

I tried to import my Gatherer data to Cartographer, but the importer does not do what it is supposed to. Gatherer.lua is in SavedVariables, a no importing is performed.

i;ve seen this mod on wowace: http://www.wowace.com/files/Cartographer_Import/ to import data from gatherer.

my question is: i used ct_mapmpd to store my herba/mining nodes. can that mod be adjusted to import from ct_mapmod?

thanx

i was wondering i used to use gatherer a lot , since dropping auctioneer for KCI items, I've quickly realized how great ACE add ons are. I was wondering if there was an add-on similar to gatherer, that was based on Ace, or designed to work within cartographer directly ?

small modification

I loved how the coloured numbers would tell me who was where at a glance in a battleground. Soon enough, I found myself looking for people losing hit points to see where backup was needed. With that idea (to see the incomings instead of waiting for them to be called) I opened cartographers code and here's what I came up with:

GroupColors.lua
Code:
tex:SetVertexColor(t.r, t.g, t.b) --line 110
if UnitAffectingCombat("raid"..i) and (time()+i) % 2 == 0 then -- line 111, added
	tex:SetVertexColor(0.8, 0, 0) -- line 112, added
end --line 113, added
Code:
tex:SetVertexColor(t.r, t.g, t.b) --line 124
if UnitAffectingCombat("party"..i) and (time()+i) % 2 == 0 then -- line 125, added
	tex:SetVertexColor(0.8, 0, 0) -- line 126, added
end --line 127, added
So half the time, a player's color is red if he/she is in combat. A more integrated way to go about it would be to have two sets of GroupColorsArtwork files, one with black (default) numbers and one with red (in combat numbers). The UnitAffectingCombat function is somewhat limited in range, likely the enemy targettable distance, but it is the most accurate, as far away info is delayed at best.

Thumbs up Best map mod, period.

This is, hands down, the best map mod I have used to date.

Gathering has been updated in the latest version, and works, so far, flawlessly (been using for about 2 weeks now with no issues, even after the 2.0 patch).

Instance maps are wonderful. Your location actually appears on the map! I can't tell you how disappointed I was in Atlas regarding their instance maps in this function... I am a new player, so I don't have instances memorized in the slightest. I would rather know where I am, than know what loot drops where. I mean, you figure that out when it drops anyway, right?

The note adding ability is second to none, and the on screen, hot scalable, hot alpha adjustable map is THE BEST, PERIOD. Nothing else comes close. Instance maps are also, for direction finding anyway, the best, period.

Can't say enough about the mod. I use squeenix for the square mini map feature, the combination cannot be beat.

If you like Atlas, if you like Titan map mod, get this. You'll realize just how much was missing from the other mods when you try this out. And yes, it works just fine in BC and patch 2.0.

Ah ha! Go to this thread and it has a Perl script to download that will convert your data. Worked perfectly for me.

Love cartographer!

For some reason I its not tracking herbs/minerals for me. I expected this feature to be automatic upon installation. Am I missing something?
