Map Updates 09 June

Okay, the last map updates were a step in the right direction IMHO, but many of you were right that they were not "clean". I followed the route and decreased the map to three tiles now (main1, main2, mtb). Also routing offroad is now much more differentiated and in the tooltip of Mapsource (not on GPS for the moment, however I’m working on it…) and for every street type that could be unpaved, I take now mtb:scale/mtb:scale:uphill/ routes, tracktype, bicycle=no, bicycle=yes, bicycle=designated and sac_scale into consideration (about 150 different combinations for EACH road type, like path or unclassified) so that road classification is even better. Oh and riverbanks are back (was not nice to look at empy rivers, was it?)


n the mapsource tooltip you can identify which factors were taken into account as I put abbreviations into the name. These are much shorter this time, and on my Vista HCx in the routing page, very rarely does a roadname get stripped, on the map page while navigating even less often.

Routing over longer distances should work a bit better now, if the area is well mapped. I tried out a many routes that I know from the past […]

Openmtbmap Germany uploading / Deutschland Mountainbike Karte am hochladen

O.k. the newest Germany map is finally compiled and uploading. I hope that next time I will have my new PC to get it done faster.

Hier ist ein Auschnitt der Mountainbike Karte (sorry ich muss Keywords fuer Google benutzen – die Suche nach “mountainbike maps” auf ist schon auf Platz 1, aber Mountainbike Karten/Karte ist noch unter ferner liefen). Man sieht schoe die biserigen Mountainbikerouten. Ich hoffe mal da naechste Woche mehr zu sehen. Im Harz waren die Mountainbiker schon fleißig!

Bitte auch bei der Abstimmung teilnehmen. Zum Vergleich koennt ihr Bayern noch mit alten Zoomeinstellungen anschauen.

Einige Maptiles sind falsch benannt “openmtbmap_aut” statt “openmtbmap_de”, dass stoert aber nicht die Funktion.

Edit 07:13:

Der Upload ist abgebrochen heute Nacht. Wird daher erst gegen 10:00 fertig sein (muss mal schauen warum sowohl wput wie auch filezilla dauernd abbrechen).
