rotate map view

Description (last modified by skyper)

It would be nice if one could rotate and tilt the view of the map, because:
i stand on a position and take several photos into different directions.
allthoug all photos are geocoded and reference points are visible
it would be easier to map the things shown if one could rotate the map so the direction of a way
seen on the photo (it goes straigt forward) is the same of the mapview.

atteched you will find the original photo and how it could be.

This feature would be much appreciated. I find myself tilting my head all the time when editing ways in detail, it would be far better for my neck to rotate the viewport instead.

Btw., it is possible to rotate the map, but probably not as convenient as you may have hoped:

First find the UTM zone for your region and the corresponding EPSG code. For example for UTM zone 34 it would be EPSG:32634. Then, to rotate the map by 30 degrees, use a custom projection with the following parameter string:

+init=EPSG:32634 +gamma=30

comment:11 Changed 3 years ago by Don-vip

+init=EPSG:3857 +gamma=30 does not work, is it only for some projections?

comment:12 Changed 3 years ago by bastiK

Yes, gamma is only a parameter for Oblique Mercator (omerc) and Transverse Mercator (tmerc).

No progress after 10 years? Seriously? It would help a lot with mapping not horizontal features. Now it is too painful.

comment:16 Changed 21 months ago by michael2402

There has been some internal work to make this possible, but a lot of components / layers do not support it yet.

No real demand in 10 years actually says "Not worth bothering with".

This is a very disturbing comment. The reason why there's "no demand" is because people don't see any progress in 10 years and don't see the point of raising it again. There's no response in 10 years and it's unlikely a few more comments would make it better. It's a sad fact but not why we should take it as-is.

Well, maybe we understand our own bug tracker a bit better than you think? Features which people really want get duplicated tickets all over the time with differing descriptions and use cases. A request which sits here for such a long time without a single duplicate is not really needed. And please don't think starting to make duplicate tickets now will change the situation.
