Fetch_map is an script application written to
fetch a given size map from supported map services by
retrieving needed individual map part images and combining them
to a larger map. The user provides the map center geographical
coordinates and the horizontal and vertical result map size in kilometers and
the requested map scale. Multiple map scales are available from the services.
The application supports Finnish coordinate systems and map area of Finland.
In addition to generating the requested map image, the application script
saves map calibration files to the disk. Supported calibration and map
archive formats are:
The script currently uses and supports the following Finnish map services:
- Paikkatietoikkuna service (default)
- Retkikartta.fi service, both current

The script can be extended and further developed to support other map services.
