Map Updates 19. August 2010

Finally I found some more time to work on the openmtbmaps again. There are quite a few substantial changes. First, I changed around quite a few positions of lines so that no lines in the basic types are wrongly classified (outside of the routable types..). The not really correct positions were a left-over of the days were mkgmap could not write extended types. This means old typfiles are not compatible anymore (if you have done any modifications).

Second I introduced arrows pointing downhill now also for mtb:scale:uphill=3 and 2 in less noticeable colors compared to before or 4 and 5. This gives better indication of steepness. Last I made basic_hut and wilderness_hut searchable too, so not only alpine_hut can be found. lean_to and the for me remniscent amenity=shelter will not be searchable. Also I moved up the priority of city types, so that some more cities/places will show up in the city search.

Last but not least, is someone by chance next week (Monday to Thursday) riding in Portes du Soleil and got a (cheap) bed for me to crash? I want to go riding there for a few days and have problems finding a reasonably priced place to stay (and knowing the popularity of PDS just think that maybe someones around). Would be happy about comments/mails regarding this ASAP (before sunday at the latest...)
