Qt Map with mavlink



  • Hi everyone,
    Glad to be posting on Qt forum, and i hope i will have help from the forum to help me develop my applications.
    I am trying to build an application based on Qt map and then use mavlink protocol for displaying a mavlink based vehicle on the map.
    But i still can't figure out how to implement that approach.
    I can use the ready to use example of Qt map from Qt creator, but the problem i am having is how to implement the mavlink protocol with the map and how to get the mavlink messages sent from the vehicle to display it on Qt map.
    I know that there is applications like QgroundControl available for this approach, but the code for this application is complicated and i can't figure out how they are using mavlink with the maps.
    And thank you in advance for the help.

    this is a rather complicated task i'd say.

    the QtLocation plugin to display the map can be found here it seems.



  • Thank you for your answer.And i will check out the class referred to.
    But my question is, if i want to make my own applications Qtmap-mavlink, how should i implement this approach, i mean what should i consider writing in the code, and is there any tricks maybe that i should take care of, or maybe a specific logic i should make use of ?
