The aldeia Project aims at making a cartographer (a software to design maps) for maps in general and for the map of Aldeia in particular.

The main task of the aldeia Project is to make a cartographer, based on a new XML dialect that was especially invented for that purpose. This new format is called XAM, it means what you want : Xml for Aldeia's Map or Xam Ain't a Map or whatever. The goal of this format is to be a simple, scalable, cooperative and extensible format (yes, all that). There is a library and a CLI to handle the format.

In the same time, the aldeia Project is a repository for the official map of Aldeia. The map of Aldeia is a test for a large scale real map.

In the long term, I would like the aldeia Project to be a big laboratory to design map easily, with a powerful GUI and a good format. So if you are interested in the project, don't hesitate to contact me, event if you want to change everything (I already did that several times).

A new release of the aldeia Project. The new thing is that the files are now distributed under the GPL licence (was LGPL). The next version will probably be a big upgrade as there is many things in the TODO list :)
