Map Updates – Recap 2…


Hallo Everyone, let's continue the news recap and also inform you about latest changes.

First off all there are new contourlines for Denmark, Norway and Finland and Sweden. They are fully based on 1" data – so very high quality. However for Sweden only the 50km bordering Norway are actually excellent quality. The rest is based on 3" data.

So good news for your next trip to Scandinavia. Hopefully soon will update the data for the Alps too – then I will of course also update the contourlines in the Alps.


Also I went through openmtbmap and velomap websites and made sure no more broken image links are present anymore. So the map legend and the screenshots are updated (lesson for me – never upload any images to image hosters – or expect them to be deleted after a couple of years).

Finally some Open MTB Map News again ….


Well I must say, I'm sorry but I have been really lazy about posting news of the maps. I always thought – let's implement this feature – then post a big long news article – and well I never got to do that…


So let's split it up into several news posts summarizing the changes over the last year.. Lets start with a list of added Countries and continent maps over the last 14 months:

New Countries where you can cycle to and get the right maps

Antarctica  – well there is not much coverage in OSM here – but it was the last missing continent. Of course with contourlines

and Greenland.


Asia – contourlines are now integrated into the installer. Otherwise there is a lot of new Asian countries which I recommend instead because it's a huge download (especially the contourlines at around 9GB)..
