Los mejores mapas para MTB y montañismo

Bienvenido a Openmtbmap.org - ¡Consiga los mapas más populares para bicicleta de montaña de todo el mundo! Todos los días más de 4000 personas llegan a esta página para obtener información y conseguir mapas que les guíen por los mejores senderos, en lugar de extraviarse. Estas son las razones por las que confiar en los Openmtbmaps:

  • ¿Tipo de vía / calle? Diferenciación clara entre todos los tipos de vía. Los mapas muestran la información de manera ideal para ciclistas / montañeros. Por ejemplo, con flechas de descenso para indicar senderos con pendiente muy pronunciada.
  • Información de interés para MTB & senderismo / montañismo & ciclismo, tal como fuentes de agua potable, refugios de montaña, postes de información,... Las rutas se muestran de manera evidente junto a (y no en lugar de) las calles, diferenciadas por colores según su tipo, y según su importancia
  • Curvas de nivel basadas en los excelentes datos de viewfinderpanoramas.org. De mucha mejor calidad en las zonas montañosas que los datos SRTM3", que padecen de abundantes huecos sin información.
  • ¿Quiere participar? ¿Está el mapa incompleto o es incorrecto? Puede participar y añadir la información que falta a OSM. ¡Actualizo los mapas todas las semanas, así que cada semana los mapas son mejores y más completos! Únase a los más de 300.000 usuarios que mapean en OSM en todo el mundo, y añada vías o corrija los errores usted mismo.
  • Buena documentación porque todo lo que pueda y necesite saber se puede encontrar en Openmtbmap.org. Primeros pasos y descargue los mapas
  • Velomap: Si monta principalmente por carreteras o usa su bicicleta de carretera, ofrezco también los mapas VeloMap. Los mapas VeloMap prestan especial atención a las carreteras adecuadas para ciclistas y a las vías y rutas ciclistas. Al mostrar menos detalles, estos mapas resultan más fáciles de entender.

 

¿Quién puede usar los mapas de openmtbmap.org?

Los mapas que aquí se ofrecen son principalmente para su uso por parte de propietarios de GPS Garmin y ciclistas de montaña en general, sin embargo no es necesario que disponga de un GPS para usarlos. Qlandkarte GT, un visor de mapas de software libre y de descarga gratuita permite visualizar los mapas en toda su dimensión, y aunque no posea un GPS Garmin ni haya comprado mapas de Garmin, siempre puede instalar el Garmin MapSource en su ordenador y disfrutar del autorouting como nunca. Además de los anteriores hay programas de terceros tales como Gloups o Garmin Mobile XT que se pueden usar para ver los mapas de openmtbmap.org en su PDA o smartphone.

 

Acerca de openmtbmap.org

Comencé a trabajar con OSM porque vi la oportunidad de que, por primera vez en la historia, hubiera mapas creados por ciclistas de montaña para ciclistas de montaña. Sin embargo en esos momentos aún no había ninguna estructura para clasificar caminos, por lo tanto desarrollé la etiqueta mtb:scale así como otros muchos otros atributos para OSM. Sin embargo casi nadie usaba estas nuevas etiquetas, así que comencé a crear mapas que las mostraran, y al cabo de unos meses publiqué openmtbmap.org para poner los mapas a disposición de cualquiera que deseara descargarlos.

En la actualidad hay en torno a 2000-5000 visitantes diarios diferentes en openmtbmap.org (medido mediante Google Analytics).

Openstreetmap nos da la capacidad de crear mapas realmente orientados a bicicleta de montaña como nunca hasta ahora había sido posible. ¡Por esta razón le animo a involucrarse y comenzar a participar en OSM, como ya hacen más de 300.000 personas en todo el mundo!


New Contourlines for all Maps – and again – Please Stick to Basecamp 4.6.x

1. Yesterdays/Day before Yesterdays map update of the Europe Map has new contourlines - so especially all OSx users - please do not reuse the old contourlines. For Windows the installer throws an error message anyhow.

It took me a lot of time to iron out bugs in the contourline data, convert it correctly to the needed input formats - fill voids and put it together. The Europe map is now the first to be fully based on Sonnys LIDAR data where available (Italy is new), elsewhere the still pretty excellent ALOS World 30m data - and from 60° northwards voidfilled viewfinderpanoramas 3" data. Yes except for the Alps the Viewfinderpanoramas 3" data used to be the common source for all my contourline maps - it's IMHO crazy how much better the ALOS - and of course LIDAR data is in mountaineous regions. LIDAR data is from laser scanning - of course that will be the best possible to attain, however the ALOS data (downsampled from Alos World 5m data to 30m) is where it's not voidfilled by SRTM1v3.0 really astonishingly good in my eyes. Often flatter forest areas are put 5-10m too high (but SRTM and viewfinderpanoramas also have that problem - if a little less) - but especially in rougher areas the accuracy is pretty good.

I've now also put 10m contourlines instead of 20m interval to all European countries that have no summit over 500m altitude (and to some Germany Bundesländer Maps). Else it's 20m.

This weeks map update will be using the new contourlines for most European countries, and some worldwide countries - however only for maps where the contourlines are not a separate download. Next week map update will then have the new better contourlines for all countries. 

Also of course again all contourline maps come with altitude shading and for those countries like Europe continent map where partly contourlines where missing - this should be fixed with the new contourlines.

See below for the Matterhorn - the Matterhorn is pretty much data rubbish in most elevation models - due to it's sticky pointyness, usual cloud cover and glaciers. Thanks to LIDAR data it's really pretty exact (compare that to SRTM1 rubbish in Google earth for fun).

2. Again to stress on Basecamp 4.7.0 - Please do not use it neither on OSx, nor on Windows. It is prone to crashes  - and while on Windows MapInstall 4.2.0 which comes with it - will not send maps on Windows, and often crash while sending larger maps on OSx.

On Windows make sure to run both Uninstall and Installation with Administrator rights - and if you have Problems - Uninstall again - and delete all garmin Folders in Program Files / Program Files X86 folders. Your userdata is safe and not affected as that is in your Userprofile / Appdata folder (no  need to delete anything here).

On OSx I'm not quite sure how to check correct full uninstallation - but it should be similar.

Do NOT Update to Basecamp v 4.7.0!

Sorry this is just a quick message - but because it's kinda important and may cause a lot of confusion - I send out this short newsletter.

 Garmin released a new version of Basecamp - 4.7.0 - in order to remove many features that were not in accordance with the GDPR regulation. Actually it's not that 4.6.2 is wrong here - it's that there were a few web services - that Garmin switched off - and those were interlinked into 4.6.2 - so that actually in 4.6.2 some functionality is not working anymore - I could on a quick check however not discover any actual difference otherwise in relation to the GDPR regulations - so 4.6.2 is no different in this regard to 4.7.0 - well and new privacy page/EULA of course).

Now the problem is - Basecamp 4.7.0 also ships an updated version of Garmin MapInstall - and that version is broken in so far that it does not send any maps in .img format anymore! This also applies to original garmin maps. I have some old Garmin Topo Austria and Garmin City Navigator map - that cannot be sent anymore. Also any of the garmin demo maps converted into .img format from gmapsupp.img do not transfer anymore.

 

If you are a Windows user and upgraded to 4.7.0 you have 3 choices:

a) Downgrade to Basecamp v 4.6.2: it can be found here: http://www.gawisp.com/perry/mapsource/

ATTENTION - you need to first deinstall Basecamp, then Install Basecamp 4.6.2. If you simply install 4.6.2 without deinstalling 4.7.0 Mapinstall is not correctly downgraded.

b) download the OSx (Mac) version of all openmtbmaps/velomaps in .gmap format. You can install them by placing them into the C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\maps\mtbCOUNTRY.gmap respectively C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\maps\veloCOUNTRY.gmap and better read the OSx tutorial too: https://openmtbmap.org/tutorials/install-maps-mac-osx/ respectively for Velomap users here: https://www.velomap.org/tutorials/install-maps-mac-osx/

c) do not send any .img format maps until Garmin releases a new version without this bug.

 

Actually right now only a part of the overview map is sent - it would be nice if Garmin could send the overview maps in general too - as right now they are only used on Desktop. Would actually speed up the GPS devices a bit - especially if you have no activated Basemap on your device.

 

Besides this: I'm still working hard on improving the contourlines just another time, and fixing some bugs (e.g. in the Europe continent map right now in the north of Norway/Sweden some contourlines/DEM data is missing). Should not take long anymore. Expect a new release of the Europe map in the next 10 days (also worldwide all maps will come soon with even better DEM/contourlines).

 

Oh and of course I also updated my Privacy/Rules according to the GDPR rules now effective. Actually nothing changed except that I explained a bit better which data I gather (which was very easy to see/find out anyhow).

In effect I do not store (except temporary logs on my server) any data from users except the one I'm forced to store for invoice creation and making sure you can login to your account. (IP address, email, name, address) and yes I use google analytics in anonymized mode. Still due to great wisdom in actual IT knowledge of our chosen EU representatives and local governments the privacy rules have become long and tedious to read....

If I could I would not store addresses at all - but well VATMOSS EU regulations force me to do so. So nearly all of the personal data I gather, I gather only because just of another super stupid EU regulation.
