22 February Map Updates – First Time all Maps with Housenumber Search Support

(German – Deutsche – Translation hier )Woohaa, todays openmtbmap and velomap update brings, for the first time: Adress search down to housenumber accuracy! This is the first time  for OSM created Garmin Maps. Big Thanks to the devs (mainly WanMil and Steve) who made that possible and published the first working beta version of mkgmap 3 days ago. So now all adresses that are tagged with addr:housenumber and add:street are now searchable. I must admit, I had expected this to happen already 1 to 2 years ago, but now it's here. Not all addresses in OSM are tagged this way, but the support is sure to be extended in future.

This only leaves proper overview maps missing on the feature side of what is possible with the old Non NT map format from Garmin and not yet implemented in the openmtbmaps.

 

I will update the full Europe Map tomorrow too (downloadable from Saturday updated), so you can enjoy proper address search with housenumbers.

You can also see the housenumbers as a popup now (if in OSM):

Map Updates and News – 18 January 2012

(für Deutsch – bitte dem Link oben folgen und den Artikel auf openmtbmap.org/de lesen) – Well long time no see, here are News from Openmtbmap and Velomap again. I know it's been a long time, but I just didn't find the time to write down all the news during the last weeks.

Largely responsible for this is, that as I couldn't really do sports over the last 8 weeks. Due to my ankle still not fully recovered, I fell into a bit of a motivationless hole. But well, in 1-2 weeks my ankle will have recovered so far, that I can go mtbiking, skiing and boarding again – I just hope that there will be another big fall of snow – like the last 2 days here in Vienna, where around 30cm of snow fell even in downtown Vienna.

My main work during the last weeks, was focussed on bugfixing on the server side, and on making the maps for Mac OSX easier to use –  here is now a guide for Dummies on Mac OSX

 

Besides the Newssection below the picture – I put up a promotion special – hoping to convert some of the readers of […]
