[MAPS] - Vector maps
« on: July 17, 2011, 09:49:21 »
This is temporary topic for sharing Vector maps, till I find any stable and working solution for map distribution, so please if you have any maps on some sharing service, give links to others here ...

I set up an account at 4shared. With a free account you get 10Gb of space and a max file size of 2Gb. The number of downloads is also unlimited. The one restriction that may be a problem is that only one person can download each file at one time. It will be interesting to see how that works out  :D

These are the maps I uploaded, with the dates the map was created. Depending on how long it takes Menion to get a server system available I may update some of these at some point.

Note that Hong-Kong, Singapore, and Thailand are not available at the Geofabrik site, so these maps are generated from data from the CloudMade site. The national boundaries for Thailand are missing, and they all have coastline problems. I think everything else is OK though, so as long as you ignore the fact that some roads go through the ocean and some just seemingly stop for no reason (because it's really the coast, of course) they are usable. Mapforge is aware of this problem, but don't seem inclined to fix it any time soon.

You need a tool called "osmosis" and the mapwriter-plugin from mapsforge: http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/wiki ... terOsmosis

This is working for me, except that I couldn't manage to convert the complete europe file...

I think that would be HUGE :) I did the whole of Asia, and the resulting map file was more than 7 GB!

Hi all,

Thanks for the link in the second post, the vector maps work great.
I wonder if there is also a complete germany.osm.map file anywhere?

I tried using the germany.0.2.4.map from mapsforge ftp,  but this doesn't work for zoom levels > 11.

Thanks in advance, Robert

Hi Robert,

as these should be vector maps, they should be independet of the zoomlevel. Are you sure that there is a zoomlevel restriction? How big is the file?

I took the germany.osm from geofabrik and converted it myself to mapsforge format. The file is arround 1GB in size and seems to contain all information.

Hi supermaz,

thanks for your reply.

I checked my file :
germany-0.2.4.map, 992.41M, 25/07/2011...

As far as I remember, the download didn't brake. Interesting point is, that zoomlevels <= 11 are working. Zoomlevels above 11 are only displayed white.
Locus doesn't seem to be the problem, because in cgeo it doesn't work either ... (ok, i know, they also use the mapsforge lib, but you never know  :P ).

Hmmm, if no one else has any proposals, I will try to download the germany map a second time to doublecheck that the download is not corrupt.

Thanks, Robert

white area instead of some lower zooms is normal behavior as I noticed ...
