Title: New vector maps for Locus - feedback
Post by: voldapet on December 08, 2012, 16:32:32
Locus comes in version 2.8.0 with new vector maps with prepared themes for Hiking, Cycling, Driving and for city. Maps are available via Locus store. Switching styles is also simplified in new version – long press on name of the map in Map manager causes changing of map style (see attached image).
Maps are in some kind of beta version and for this reason we’ll appreciate any comments, issues, suggestions or ideas how to improve styles and maps.

already known issues:
- blue ocean is missing (for some regions)  
- somewhere are coastlines thick red lines
- ghost contourlines


Thank you
VOLDY

Not yet a comment but a question. Will these maps also be available for downloading (and paying) on the PC? I find that more convenient. Like before on http://vectormaps4locus.eu/ (http://vectormaps4locus.eu/)

Hi,
We are planning to change whole system of distribution of vector maps and probably add possibility to download maps to the PC but at this moment this is only idea… So I can’t promise it but we also think about it.

Sorry guys, I have to be honest on this one. I love Locus, but the monetizing of OpenStreetMaps vector maps is the most stupid idea that has ever come up.

http://www.openandromaps.org/ (http://www.openandromaps.org/) is an amazing website with a serious open philosophy behind it. There is no need to make an alternative for it, and even less need to monetize it. Maps are something which should be regularly updated. Not something where you should pay by megabytes or titles. People who know it the best are map enthusiasts, what happens to be also the most fanatic audience for Locus. The newest maps on openandromaps have an amazing theme, regularly updated, have perfect contour lines by now and has fixed the ocean areas (I guess this has also been fixed in the Locus ones)

I tried the new Locus themes and they aren't even comparable to andromaps ones. Paying for the maps even less so. Asking for money because of bandwidth is laughable when openandromaps can just do it for free with Google Drive.

Honestly, I'm going to recommend/ask buying Locus Pro for all my friends/family members, and it's an amazing application, but this monetizing of vector maps is a greedy and stupid idea and should be abandoned in my opinion. More close cooperation with openandromaps and possibly a downloader plugin/module would be a much nicer direction for the future.

Honest is always appreciated!

When I started distribute vector maps, it was more then years ago, first attempt was thanks to Dropbox. Second day after first release, I received notification, that my Dropbox account was stopped because of abnormal usage. During next few months, I tried few web services and everywhere was some problems with ads, limited speed etc.

Now seems that Google Drive allow unlimited bandwidth. This may be solution on one side. On second side, even if you have to buy some credit, per month is downloaded around 1TB of data, so it's more then 30GB per day. And thanks to Amazon hosting service, all is perfectly fast and without any worries, that there will be problems.

OpenAndroMaps is nice work from kech and I appreciate it, because it helps to increase popularity for OSM project and it's very very good. Anyway you have to count that Locus system for distributing vector maps isn't alternative!! As I wrote, I started with it more then year before. Since June, Peter (voldapet) works on improved system for generating as his main work ... so point is, we're not creating alternative, we're creating main source for vector map in Locus

I can write here few pages about this topic, but I don't want, because this topic is about "how maps looks and works" and not about "why they exists". Anyway, it's good that exists alternative for people, that don't want to use Locus system like you and it's absolutely OK for me ;). Price for maps in Locus is so low, that I think it should not be problem for anyone who want comfort and easy way to obtain maps. Dot

Menion, thanks for the good work on Locus. I would like to support you by buying the Pro version but without giving my credit card details to Google. Any tips how to pay anonymously on Google Play from the Czech Republic are welcome.

On the other hand, I don't feel comfortable paying for the vector maps. I am an active OSM contributor and I update the map data in my phone very often. The OSM license (http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/summary/ (http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/summary/)) requires you to provide provide your modified maps under the same license so I think, there should be way to download it for free.
Title: Re: New vector maps for Locus - feedback
Post by: menion on January 15, 2013, 10:35:49
Hello Washeck,
  anonymous paying on Google Play is not possible I think. Alternative way is to purchase Locus on AndroidPIT server, but here you'll have to also install additional program AppCenter to install and update Locus

  about license. Maps we generate are of course licensed under same license. So if anyone want to distribute them, modify etc etc, it's all of course possible by the terms of use of this license. On other hand, there is nothing bad to receive payment for work you did between raw xml data > map file and also for cost we pay for Amazon server (that store and distribute these files).

  I'm absolutely open to alternative ways, so for example if you use OpenAndroMaps from kech, it's gladly supported. It's just on you, if you want to use this or that. That's also reason why I'm not forcing anyone to use Vector maps available over Locus. If you want use simple way of downloading maps directly, then you just pay a small payment for this. If you have friends, you may share these files with them etc. You know license well so I don't have to say you this.

  And finally, you may create maps for Locus by your own, by methods described on MapsForge site

Hello,

possibly an obvious fact for someone, but not for me - quite a recent Locus user: What are the differences in maps from OpenAndroMaps.org and those downloadable directly form Locus? Does they include different data or render in a different way?

Thanks for an answer!
Title: Re: New vector maps for Locus - feedback
Post by: voldapet on February 27, 2013, 10:17:39
Hi,
Is little bit complicated to generally describe the differences. It depends on area you want to download, purpose of map (cycling, hiking),  updates…
From my point of view:
Anyway Locus maps and also OpenandroMaps are still in developing process, so it’s difficult to say which is better or which one contains more data. Every new release (of  maps) comes with new elements or with new theme which made maps better. ( I mean boths Locus and also Openandromaps)
You can also contact the author (kech61) of Openandromaps for more info.

Actually, you reminded me that we wanted to create some test maps as a preview or for comparing...thanks :)

Hi Petr ;)
Locus cycling theme

Highways are really so important? :roll:
More important than cycling?

I don't care about Motorways/Highways
With an cycling(!) theme i expect to see bike paths!

Title: Re: New vector maps for Locus - feedback
Post by: voldapet on July 15, 2013, 16:54:46
At this situation I’m little bit limited by OSM data. Tags for highway A27 say that this highway is in higher layer then bridge with cycleway. There is an issue that in our themes is highway thick and cover cycle way. In normal situation should be placed cycleway over highway.

So there is maybe question into discussion: how create hiking/cyclo styles. When I created them I wanted to offer general tourist map with hiking or cycling way and of course with highways (from my point of view highway is important element in countryside). On the other hand there is openandromaps solution which put great emphasis on cycleways and other map elements are not so significant.

Anyway  I can make highway more narrower ... :-)

Long or short names, this isn't the point. On a biking or hiking map we don't need these names at all and also the rendering of the highways itself should be reduced because we want to see the biking resp. hiking ways.

Post by: voldapet on August 07, 2013, 08:48:03
There are small changes in Locus internal themes for cycling and hiking. The labels for highway are smaller (maybe too small) and caption for water areas are bigger (maybe too big). There was also discussion about thickness of motorway. They are little bit narrower but please don’t expect small lines for motorway as opencyclemap has.

There is small discussion about Cycle theme. I don’t’ want to ask which elements/icons are missing in our themes. I’d like to ask what about “dot” system in internal cyclo theme. All cycle ways are rendered with dots and from level > 17 are these dots transparent. There were two ideas: dots are rendered in such a way that you can see more type (local/international) of cycle ways over the background track. The second idea was to see what type of track/highway is under the dots.

So is this system usable in the field? Are these dots visible outdoors? Is it important for you wheather cycleway is international or local?
Thanks for ideas

Hi,

Not sure if this is right topic, but it's about the vector maps, so I'll try.

I just "bought" a few vector maps of Asia (Cambodia, India - Uttar Pradesh) and Europe and after quick look on them here is a feedback:

1. On Cambodia map on the south of Phnom Penh is missing river Mekong. I mean it is not missing it just looks that way, because for some reason the islands in the river are blue, but river itself has color as land. (see attachments)

2. Is (or would be) possible to show on religious places what religion they belong to? For example in India live Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists and maybe more, but when I look on map of Delhi (theme City (město) - zoom 15) I could see only a few churches and no Hindu/Jain temple, mosque or gurdwara. I can find another religious places, but I have to search for them. When I look on the map I really would like to see what interesting places are around me.

3. Some countries are divided into smaller maps. I get it when there are a big countries, but to be honest I would prefer for example in case of India to divide it not by the states (some states are really small) but by geographical location (eg. south of India, NW/NE of India).
It's not only India. In case of Ireland I have to get map of Republic of Ireland and North Ireland. Why not provide whole island?

Yes. There is really issue with missing tiles. Have you remember the very old issue that some metatiles contains so much data that wasn't generated properly? I guess that this is the issue. I've tried to generate Northrhine-Westfalia again with different setting of zoom-levels but without success

thanks balloni, it's same issue in all cases. We have increased size of tiles in new vector maps to 512x512 and seems they are in rare cases, too big to fit to available memory. I've increased memory limit on 4.0+ devices, so it will work for them in next version. 2.x devices, there is unfortunately no simple solution for now.

I think this will be little bit different problem. Probably caused by incorrect check of bounding boxes of vector maps. Not so easy to fix now. I needs from Peter to update some special metadata in vector maps itself to improve this issue also. Hope it is not a big problem now. Zoom in should fix this right?

1. "Missing tiles" on new Locus maps may be the same tiles as "missing roads" on OpenAndroMaps maps, reported in http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4263.msg33635#msg33635 - certainly the tile from the area near Ruthin is missing when I view your latest Wales map using the latest LocusPro
2. Increasing the size of the tiles has gone a long way to dealing with the horizontal/vertical ways artefacts when rendering closed ways reported in http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3698.msg27520#msg27520 and http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/artefacts-when-rendering-closed-ways-in-vector-maps but not totally removed traces of the false ways.

Am I the only one who is experiencing super slow loading times with the latest map of Germany from the locus store? All other vector maps (freizeitkarte, open andro maps) work fine and load a lot faster. I am using the same theme (locus hiking theme).

Eldron, I was playing with new vector maps a lot and I think we finally found a problem. New maps, as I wrote before, has different tile size (now 512x512 px compare to previous 256x256). This increased speed for high zoom levels because Locus now handle 4 times less map tiles at once. On second side, mainly in Germany (generally all maps) in low zoom levels 8 - 12, loading of tiles seems to be slower. Locus needs to load a lot more information from file and seems that memory even on 4.x devices is quite limited for this task.

Expect improved version of vector maps which will solve this issue. So during Q1/2015. Till then, I'm unable to improve it on Locus side for now ... sorry

Unfortunately it's not a problem. New themes are prepared for new Locus vector maps that contains also the database of POIs. Some captions aren't shown in new themes because with new map lot's of points are click-able and you can quickly get name by clicking on the POI icon.

I have downloaded a few vector maps, but I seem to have some fundamental problems. The biggest one is that I see a white screen instead of the map. It seems that I can only see one map at a time, which is particularly irritating when I look at the border area between two maps or when I zoom out far enough to have two or more maps on one screen.

With other maps the Locus strategy has always been that the map tiles appear when I move the map to another place. Is there any good reason to deviate from the original strategy? It has always seemed OK to me.

More generally I would wish that Locus always shows me a map if I have one for the area I am looking at. What sense does it make to show me a white area? Even when I have vector maps and move to an area for which I have only a raster map, what is better, if I see the raster image or if I see nothing?

Yet another problem was that I had a vector map of Germany and a much more detailed vector map of Bavaria in Germany. Of course, when I look at a place in Bavaria it does not make much sense to show me the much less detailed Germany map. I think, Locus should automatically change to the more detailed map if the user has overlapping maps of different detail and zooms in as far as to actually show the details.

Hi,

do you mean that you can see white tiles (rectangle) in the middle of some vector map? If yes, would you please send me the screenshot or name of the broken map?
Hovewer Locus has  auto-load feature for vector map - see: Menu > Settings > Map -advanced >Vector maps > Map auto-load. If you enable it, Locus automatically loads map on the border (if exists).

Unfortunately Personal maps and Vector maps are "separated" at this moment. It means that Locus can automatically load only vector map or only personal map. It's not possible to combine automatic loading personal and vector maps.

German versus Bavaria maps. I'm sorry but all vector map have the same resolution and all maps contain the same data (if you use vector maps from Locus Store)

Post by: hgmichna on March 18, 2015, 16:46:31
Thanks for your quick reply!

No, I did not mean blank areas inside a vector map. I was referring to adjacent maps, but your hint of the auto-load setting solved this problem. Thanks for this!

Actually I am wondering why that setting is even needed. Why not have it always on? Who in the world wants to stare at a completely white map?

As to the maps with different "resolutions", the problem maps indeed did not come from the Locus Store. I will probably restrict myself to the Locus Store to avoid this problem. How about payment by bitcoin?  8)

Some maps are overlapping neighbor countries at least some areas near the frontier of them. The autoload setting would change the map in some cases if you are near these frontiers. I have deliberately turned off this setting.

It's little bit complicated (as jusc wrote). Auto loading would make sense if Locus would support only one own map. But users often use some own custom maps. Even different maps for the same area. For this reason it would complicated to create good logic for auto-loading personal and vector maps.In addition there is also technical complication.

About the resolution of vector maps. I don't know where you downloaded the maps. Users often download them from OpenAndroMaps page and I guess that these maps contain almost the same data as maps from Locus store. BTW you can download first three vector maps from Locus store for free. So you can check the "resolution" And finally only way how to pay in Locus store are Google InApp Billing payments.

Locus maps do not show all buildings
Please look at "Arkaden"  http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/51.95989/7.62658 (tag is k="building" v="retail")

@jusc
Thanks for report. Actually I focused on missing building last week. But new generation of map is needed - so It'll be fixed in next version of Locus vector maps.
Thanks

About LoMap and his own hiking theme.
(don't found the right topic in "theme")

Why this theme ignores this ares:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/47.19895/13.11837  ?

OSM description:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Cs:Tag:natural%3Dscrub

compare:
GoogleEarth map | Locus-hike theme | HiLo-theme:
(http://s14.postimg.org/kczfao8x9/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/kczfao8x9/) | (http://s14.postimg.org/em98wy0x9/locus.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/em98wy0x9/) | (http://s14.postimg.org/6i14s7ei5/hilo.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/6i14s7ei5/)

btw.
For me as an hiker, this would be a better orientation in the field, then the useless gas station(fuel) symbols in this theme  8)

I'm sorry for delay - some problem in notification. Well I guess that internal theme used to use custom color for natural=scrub. Even the theme is ready for it. But it seems that I had to removed. Unfortunately I don't remember why :) Maybe some simplification?
Well you'd like to see it, right? :)

Hello, during my last vacation I noticed the following error in Locus vector map (Germany South). Please see the attached screenshots. 1st is Locus map (Germany South) and 2nd Openandromaps (Germany Mid). What's causing the erroneous display in Locus map? Thank you in advance.
