There are a number of new features and improvements in jsdotpattern – my tool for generating random patterns for maps.
The most important one is you can now record processing steps and save and distribute them as links. Here are a few examples, you can click on the links to open jsdotpattern and have the same pattern generated as SVG in your browser:
Be aware that although these are all relatively small patterns some take a bit of time to process. You might need to wait a few seconds, possibly even tens of seconds – depending on browser and computer. To get a similar link to a recorded sequence of your own design just click on the sequence link at the bottom of the jsdotpattern interface and you see the sequence of your current session and a link to share it.
Other changes are:
- Selection of symbols is now more convenient and with previews.
- You can also generate SVGs with the individual symbols inlined and not referenced.
- There are quite a lot of new symbols including those I used for the OSM standard style bare ground and wetland patterns.
- Casing width can be adjusted now.
