New: Improved calculation of mountain landscapes even with very high resolutions
New features for the calculation of mountain landscapes deliver more beautiful gradients even with very high resolutions. The result is smoother and more natural mountain ranges that combine with satellites and vector data to create beautiful landscapes.
More structures with the Perlin Noise Engine
Without Perlin Noise
With Perlin Noise
In addition to the improved calculation of mountain landscapes, the Perlin Noise Engine generates additional information, so that even fine structures can be recognized, which would otherwise blur.
New: Country borders can now be switched on/off separately while on the water
Just as before, you can individually switch country and federal borders on and off. However, now you can also decide if you want to have them displayed on oceans and lakes.
New: Revised GUI engine for faster workflow
No more delays in displaying the user interface. Workflows can now be performed even faster.
Multi-GPS selection to determine a desired map area
Importing a GPS track to calculate the map area

What else Vasco StreetMaps 8 offers you
A completely redesigned map engine makes it possible to create maps that
are even more beautiful. In addition to the previous map customization options,
Vasco StreetMaps 8 now lets you create maps with shadow and glow effects for
that extra depth and expressiveness.
You can now also add a variety of landscapes on surfaces, such as forests, meadows, lakes, etc. to make your maps even more vivid and leave you wanting more. Take advantage of the many new options offered by Vasco StreetMaps 8 to make superlative maps that are individual and attractive.
More details in Vasco StreetMaps 8 than ever? Is that even possible?
You bet! Once again, the amount of mapping data that's available has
increased by so much that that it would take a stack of DVDs to contain it all.
That's why we've now switched over to Blu-Ray discs for the first time so that
installing the data on your computer remains as easy as ever.
Vasco StreetMaps 8 now contains a total of 280 GB of vector, altitude and satellite data and thus provides probably the most comprehensive map pack is that you can install on your computer. The 75 GB of global elevation data will let you create stunning relief maps.
More data means, of course, that maps produced by StreetMaps 8 offer much more detail and what were once just open spots on the globe are now filled with information. This mass of data results in extremely accurate maps which you can customize to your personal taste and needs with the help of Vasco StreetMaps 8.
Vasco StreetMaps 8: individual mapmaking taken to the extreme
course, previous Vasco StreetMaps already allowed you to customize your maps as
you liked, but Version 8 now goes one step further. Not only can you "just"
customize almost every detail of the map data for example with color, but now
you can also apply a variety of optical effects to the map data to boost the
plasticity and spectacular appearance of your maps. For example, you can now add
shadows to the urban canyons of big cities or sink riverbeds three-dimensionally
into the map.
The new "glow" effect also lets you have smoothly flow into each other to create transitions in terrain that appear more natural.
But that's not all: Vasco StreetMaps now lets you decide what type of vegetation you want to add to your landscapes. You can set up grain fields, wildlife sanctuaries, forests, and fields with different textures to give your maps that lifelike look you know from satellite data. Of course, these textures can also be colored to your liking.
Vasco StreetMaps 8, improved detail
We continue to develop our programs, we always have an open ear for the wishes and suggestions of our customers.
The result: Vasco StreetMaps 8 features many improvements in how maps are displayed and changes that make the program easier to use.
You can turn the wide variety of map labels on or off, depending on what you
want displayed on your map.
With the new textures, you can put forests, meadows, and lakes on your maps to make them even more lifelike and set them apart from other static maps.
Add shadows to bridges, lakes, or rivers or add a dark shadow at the edge of
woodlands to create extra depth and expressiveness.
No problem, just change the color profile settings for the altitude data and you can create beautiful snowy landscapes in your mountainous region. You can customize the color profile to represent the specific character of each region.
Combining the data to create detail-rich maps
Combine satellite, altitude and vector data to create one-of-a-kind, aesthetically pleasing maps. Either keep them simple or combine elevation data to create a relief map. Or add a satellite map to create a map for every area that will astound your friends and family.

Due to changes in the data structure, this can lead to problems. Older project files from Vasco StreetMaps 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 can, however, be imported and edited in Vasco StreetMaps 8.
Vasco StreetMaps 8 will be delivered exclusively on Blu-ray! Therefore a Blu-ray drive is required for installation
Romantic encounters in London
In this video, we show an example of how accurately and effectively Vasco StreetMaps maps can be used in Vasco da Gama. The map's geo-information remain despite post-editing in a graphics program. This makes it possible to give exact routings with personalized maps. In addition to Vasco StreetMaps and Vasco da Gama, the object package "Sights of Europe" was used.
Vasco StreetMaps offers a variety of new functions and data. Designing maps has become even more flexible. It is also possible to load Vasco StreetMaps maps into a graphics program before importing them to Vasco da Gama and editing them without losing the GPS data. Create your own maps for Vasco da Gama or for individual use as a stand-alone solution.
A trip from Frankfurt to Cologne
In this video example, we show how the maps of Vasco StreetMaps can be used within Vasco da Gama in order to design detailed travel animations. Maps were created in various resolutions and transparencies in order to achieve the level of detail that gives the best look depending on the means of transport (airplane, car, on foot). In addition, SatMap Professional Germany, Blue Marble NG and diverse object packages were used:
Demonstration of setting the zoom factor
In this video, we show how flexibly the resolution can be adjusted when generating the maps with Vasco StreetMaps. One can generate maps of whole continents as well as high resolution road maps and precisely adjust the appearance of the maps as desired:
The maps were created with a lower JPG quality, so that the
file size is as small as possible and thus the downloading takes place faster.
