Again Updates « - Mountainbike and Hiking Maps based on Openstreetmap

Again Updates


Since 23.05 all my maps had one big flaw, routing over tile boundaries did not work. Luckily error is solved now and therefore I upload new maps.

As reactions to the beta maps were quite positive, I will stick to the format.

The next big change is the move to 7zip compression, as it saves about 10% better than RAR or ZIP on maximum compression. Generally I would have preferred zip or rar because it is more widespread, but 7zip is anyhow a very good program and lzma compression is also widespread, Opensource (which rar is not) and supported on all OS. I will need to hear good arguments to move back to zip. Please comment if 7zip format is a factor for you not using the openmtbmap.

Map data will not be updated however, as geofabrik sever is down.
