Mountainbike and Bicycle Autorouting Revamped – New Maps / Karten

O.k. my fellow Mountainbikers, Hikers and Cyclists.

The Openmtbmap.org as of today got a new routing that simply kicks ass. I implemented about 100 additional lines into my main lines stylefile (now 500 lines longs – I will write a spreadsheet for future changes as the rules get really complex by now. Only for highway=track there are about 50 lines to check for most common things like routes, access restrictions, mtb:scale, mtb:scale:uphill and tracktype.

So to get to the point. If you activate “avoid toll roads” on your GPS or in Mapsource you get pristine bicycle routing respecting all laws (if the access rights are set correctly), not using footways, bridleways except if they are part of a bicycle route or have bicycle=yes or bicycle=designated added. Oneway streets (except primary, secondary, tertiary) will also be routed against their direction ( I hope that mkgmap coders find out about how we can set the unpaved and the carpool option – then oneway streets will get their own switch to be respected).

If you deactivate the toll roads option your GPS is ready for Mountainbike and Hiking action. No access rights are respected anymore, gnarly trails will be chosen and if the […]

600+ Visitors on first day, Sponsor for webspace and Germany will be up soon

Hello everyone, what a day! I did not even get to mountainbike today. Been occupied with this site and automating the map generation (plus some improvements) the whole day.

I did expect maybe 100 visits today, but not 600+ (mainly during the last 12 hours). I don’t think many other websites put up privately get that many people on the first day….. Had I known this I would have improved the page design a bit more before posting on forums (mtb-news.de, naviboard.de, naviuser.at) about this site. I feel quite ashamed about the mess the site is in…

Without help by mtb-news.de for hosting the files and the offer by DomainBox.de to give me free webspace for uploading the mapsets for you I bet this site would have been taken down already by my filehoster. (I decided for a €3.33 offer with 1GB, unlimited traffic – were you can be more or less sure that they either block your sites until next month or get rid of you according to what I read in forums about them once you get to around 25-30gig traffic per month).

Right now my CPU is running hot compiling Germany. I think it will be uploaded […]
