Title: [Theme] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on March 04, 2013, 18:22:01
The Voluntary UK theme is designed for clarity of display. Its colours are based on UK Ordnance Survey conventions and will be fairly familiar to British users. Even if you are not British, the colours and styles will probably work well for you. It automatically scales for devices with displays of different resolutions and symbols enlarge smoothly for higher zoom levels. The zoom levels at which various features appear has been adjusted to provide optimal information and reduce unwanted clutter.

You can choose Hiking, Cycle, City, Multi, Yellow or Transparent style when you select the Voluntary UK theme.

The styles take advantage of switchable options. Display of hiking, cycle and mountain bike routes can now be switched on or off, as can highlighting for each of them. The number of options shown is relatively limited to aid ease of use. Cycling, Hiking, City and Road styles function almost as presets with a limited range of tailored options. Within these particular styles the display is subtly tailored to its purpose: for example, Road displays junction and road numbers better; Cycling has a better display of cycle routes. Multi, Transparent and Yellow have a fuller (but manageable) range of options. Locus remembers the settings of the options for each style.

The City style is aimed at use in large cities such as London and has a less cluttered (and slightly faster) display at low zoom levels. Colours in the Yellow theme are more muted and are aimed at use with overlays in Locus Pro.

1. Voluntary (Mapsforge version) | 2. Velocity (Locus version)

A "Transparent" style turns off the map background and enables use of a vector map as an overlay on top of a satellite image in Locus Pro. This requires the use of "src atop" blend mode for the overlay map. Similarly the "background" checkbox in the Yellow style can be used to achieve the same effect.

Generally, blue dashes are cycle ways, green dashes represent dual use both on bike and on foot (bridle paths in the UK), and brown shorter dashes use on foot only. Blue blobs are cycle routes, green blobs are hiking routes. Mountainbike trails are shown by violet blobs. Cycle routes are also indicated by blue dashes on the roads. Hiking, cycle and mountainbike routes can be emphasised by selectable overlays.

The theme is designed to work well with both LoMaps from Locus Store and maps from OpenAndroMaps. Footpaths, bridleways and cycleways are indicated on the map by dashed lines where they follow the path of a mapped track or pedestrian way if the map supports it (currently OpenAndroMaps).  Also on maps from OpenAndroMaps, blue dashes on roads are either cycle routes or roads with cycle tracks alongside, while shorter blue dashes on roads show cycle lanes in the road.

The Locus package includes a version that works with Mapsforge v4+ (Multilingual) maps from OpenAndroMaps. This theme only appears when a Mapsforge v4+ map is selected.

Also included in both zip files is the visually-similar Velocity theme for a simpler display with much faster drawing.   

The package is available in two versions, one for Locus maps and the other for Cruiser, Orux Maps, etc.

The Locus version of this theme can be installed easily from the Locus Store in the app. Go to Locus Store > By Usage / Graphic  / Themes - Vector Maps and scroll down to Locus Community / Voluntary UK theme. Alternatively, download Voluntary Locus.zip, below.

For Cruiser , Orux Maps, etc., download Voluntary.zip, below. Voluntary.zip contains the following flavours:
MF5 for Cruiser, Orux donate, Orux beta
MF5- for Orux free (no text on curved paths)
MF4 for any app that cannot scale dotted and dashed lines. Mapsforge 4 compatibility.

From time to time I will update these themes (and reset the download count). The latest version is always in this post.

I have updated the first post with a new version of the themes which now show hiking and cycle routes on the latest Locus maps as well as with the OpenAndroMaps.
The new Locus maps also show windmills, gates, orchards, pylons in these themes.

I've reworked the theme, and uploaded Voluntary Hike UK to the first post.
It features reworked and colour-coded symbols and captions (and more of them), named bodies of water and streams, canal tunnels shown correctly, motorway junctions, and more.

edit
Added cliff and ridge/arete symbols to the maps. See first post for download.
However, do not rely on OpenMaps to avoid falling over a cliff.

February 12, 2014, 22:56:00:
Updated to display "hcw network" from OpenAndromaps, that is, routes which are "designated for cycles". Straightforward cycleways are shown by blue dashes as before but what is new is showing other paths and tracks that are OK for cycles.
In general in the UK these correspond to bridle paths (open to passage on foot, horse or bicycle and with no stiles or locked gates), restricted byways (open to passage on foot, horse, non-motorised vehicle), or byways open to all traffic (in theory, but often not - either because of their condition or other legal restrictions). Unlike cycleways, you are most likely OK to walk on these paths or tracks!
Working on that basis, I indicate paths that are not cycleways but are "designated for cycles" in the same way as bridleways (green dashes) and tracks that are not cycleways but are "designated for cycles" as green-coloured tracks. Unspecified tracks are brown in colour.  The grade (surface/visibility) of the track is indicated by how far apart the dashes of the track are.
Updated file in the first post as usual.

Reworked rendering order, following Tobias (mainly)
Also:
- Show coastline and beaches above and below high tide line
- Distinguish cities, towns, villages and suburbs better and more intuitively
- Changed the representation for construction, greenfield, and quarry
- Adjusted visibility of road numbers at low zooms
- And general tidying up

Latest version in the first post of this thread.

- Further reworking of rendering order to show highway areas linked to neighbouring highways better
- Now shows runway areas and aprons correctly
- Airport names shown better
- Coastline, and distinguishes beaches above and below coastline (hightide)
- Reworked some fills to be more intuitive, such as
-- Construction shown as scattered dots on grey
-- Greenfield construction shown as scattered dots on pale green
-- Quarry shown as scattered dots on pale brown (industrial)
- Hamlet, village, town distinguished by size and weight of names
- Road numbers hidden for low zooms to avoid caption conflict
- Railways hidden for low zoom
- Railways more visible at higher zooms
- Tramways and light railways colour-coded yellow following Ordnance Survey maps
- Subways (underground railways) colour-coded red
- Weirs shown by map symbol and marking
- "Greens" coded by accessibility and detail: very pale green = grassland; pale green = grass; light green = "private" (golf, camping etc); darker green = accessible (common, village green, park, recreation ground)
- Private gardens cross-hatched
- Patterns for nature reserves and military areas reworked

New versions uploaded in first post. Voluntary UK uses special Locus coding to scale dashed lines, Voluntary Hike UK avoids that.

Post by: Bill Lancashire on November 11, 2014, 14:01:52
I like this theme very much but I am still a little confused by the naming of the two options available for download:

Voluntary_Hike.zip contains the folder 'Voluntary UK' and it's contents
and
Voluntary_Hike_UK.zip contains the folder 'Voluntary_Hike_UK' and it's contents.

I use the 'OpenAndroMaps' therefore which of the two themes should I be using?

Many thanks,

Bill.
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on November 11, 2014, 20:48:44
I quite agree it's confusing. I've updated the files now and and renamed them to avoid confusion. Voluntary UK uses special Locus coding to scale dashed lines, Voluntary Orux avoids that and is suitable for Orux Maps, Cruiser, Atlas etc.
Use OpenAndromaps to get the best out of this theme.

Many thanks. That make it much clearer to me.
So if I use the Locus app with OpenAndroMap I would use 'Voluntary Orux'.  Is that correct?.

Post by: john_percy on November 11, 2014, 23:57:20
I've had another attempt to remove the confusion (see the first post). Use the Locus package for Locus apps, and the Orux package for all other apps (Orux, Atlas, Cruiser). Use maps from OpenAndroMaps to get the best from either theme. Very sorry that I can't explain myself better the first time.
In Locus you may want to  turn on  Settings | Map-Advanced | Advanced Settings / Resolution of maps and set Settings | Map-Advanced | Vector Maps / Text Size and Settings | Map-Advanced | Advanced Settings / Scale Resolution to suitable values for your display.

That's now all clear to me.

I was misunderstanding as I thought one of the versions was specifiacally for the 'Locus Shop - provided maps' whereas it is actually for the 'Locus app'.  I can now see what the effect is when I look at the two themes on my device.

Thanks again,

Bill.

There is a bug in the MapWriter engine that produces extraneous vertical and horizontal lines at certain zoom levels where the "way" is closed (such as a raceway, airport perimeter track, and certain road layouts). This revision of the Voluntary bundle includes themes that attempt to fix this bug for raceways, runways and taxiways and unclassified and tertiary roads, although they do introduce other minor artefacts for the roads.
These images illustrate the bug, followed by "corrected" ones:
(http://s9.postimg.org/5yedyn84b/2014_03_06_09_21_00.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/5yedyn84b/) (http://s8.postimg.org/in4cvvq29/2014_03_06_09_17_421.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/in4cvvq29/)

Versions that leave the roads unfixed are also included in the zip for download, which are in the first post as always.

I have also updated teh Locus version to give smoother contour lines and added a minimum zoom for various roads to appear, so low zoom maps do not have strange bits of road forced to appear by hiking or cycling ways. (That will make sense if you know the bug!)

There's a new scalable version coming very soon.

In the meantime, these are the adjustments in Locus:
Settings > Map advanced > Vector maps > Text size
Settings > Map advanced > Resolution of maps . [tick]
Settings > Map advanced > Scale resolution . [set]

Also for internal icons and text:
Settings > Map - objects and style > Map icons size
Settings > Map - objects and style > Text size

Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK

You can try to add somthing like  "scale-icon-size="17,1.2" to the end of line like:

  <symbol src="file:./symbols/busstop.png" scale="1.2" scale-icon-size="17,1.2" />
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on February 06, 2015, 12:19:23
You can simply magnify the whole map by using
Settings > Map advanced > Resolution of maps . [tick]
Settings > Map advanced > Scale resolution . [set]

The revised theme will be available very soon, so I'd advise against doing a lot of work on the current theme.

I've updated the Voluntary theme to scale better on zooming and on higher resolution screens. I've remade almost all the icons and patterns, and made most of the icons appear at higher zooms to avoid Locus failing to render some tiles in cities and towns.The key in pdf format is outdated, but still of some use.

This version is still in trial, so let me know how it works for you.
Upload the zipfile, expand it and copy the contents to the Locus mapsVector folder.

Latest versions in the first post. The Locus version is now fully scalable for different resolutions, and scales on zoom, with totally redrawn symbol set. Atlas version is designed for Emux's Atlas but has not been updated this time round.
This theme is intended to work well outdoors, and so has high colour contrast.

Hi Kona,

you can try to change edit the xml file of  Voluntary UK xml
Try to find the line with
<rule e="any" k="addr:housenumber" v="*" zoom-min="21">
and change zoom-min value p. e to "19" or any other value,

If you can´t figure it out, please wait for John.

<rule e="any" k="addr:housenumber" v="*" zoom-min="21">
and change zoom-min value p. e to "19" or any other value,

Seems '18' gives me on my HD screen what I need.
So I can play on both of your themes guys now a little bit as I found some fonts are to small in HD, and some labels to big, I know it's matter of needs, so custom work needs be applied here. ;)

Both themes are fantastic!

Cheers.
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on March 09, 2015, 15:30:06
There are new versions in the first post, and house numbers now appear at zoom=19.
The biggest change is that the themes make use of tags on maps from OpenAndroMaps that indicate access by bike or on foot. Tracks now have access indicated down the centre where this is mapped (blue=bike, orange=foot, green=bike and foot). Hike and bike networks are indicated similarly on roads, as well as by large blobs.
Colours are derived from UK Ordnance Survey, if you wondered.
Getting correct font sizes and zoom levels at which symbols and captions appear is not easy, depending on screen resolution and density of mapping in your chosen area. Voluntary UK dp on Locus makes a valiant attempt to scale appropriately for your display.
PS. Uploaded revised version of Voluntary Atlas due to bug in turning circle code.

New versions in the first post now include a fully scalable Locus theme using svgs.
I’ve updated all files, made all pngs much smaller and ensured the svgs display correctly on Locus, Atlas and Cruiser.
As a bonus there are Euro and Dollar versions of the bank, atm and toll symbols included in the folders (Locus and Atlas svg only) that you can rename and slot in if you wish.

And thanks, MagratC!

I believe I have found some bug, seems like deciduous wood tiles overlapping coniferous. In that area other themes show coniferous forest only and I think there is no deciduous trees at all if I remember as in Grand Canaria is only/mainly Pinus Canariensis (Canarian Pine) with huge pine cones. ;)

Hi,

Seem it doesn't load at about 1000m - 2000m view on my device. Not sure what zoom value is that.
Also I preferred red points then blue train icons. ;)
Or dots change for icons when zoom in?

Sorry, zipfile was incorrectly formed. Corrected and uploaded in first post.

Also, changed rendering slightly for coniferous woods and for ferry routes.

Hello.

I still have the same problem as Kona with the current svg version of your theme (was working in the previous versions). It doesn't render the whole map. Maybe there are some icons or symbols missing?

In this case it would help, if you can zoom into the map and change to another theme, to find the missing symbol and please share the coordinates or a usable picture.
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on March 24, 2015, 19:50:49
I don't understand this, but the zip file, which I had successfully corrected following Kona's post appears to have reverted to the previous version of its own accord. Unlikely, I know.
Anyway, I've re-uploaded a corrected one to the first post. Sorry for the difficulties.
In this version, there is an additional feature: railway stations are semitransparent, so that details can be seen in large station halls, for instance of London Victoria.

I have added style support for latest version of the Locus Maps app. You can choose Hiking, Cycle, City, Road, or Multi style when you select the Voluntary UK theme.
(http://s16.postimg.org/xmxhu3ptt/Screenshot_2015_04_20_18_58_16.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/xmxhu3ptt/)

The City style is aimed at use in large cities such as London and has a less cluttered (and slightly faster) display at zoom levels 14 and below.
(http://s23.postimg.org/yeam48lxz/Screenshot_2015_04_20_18_57_33.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/yeam48lxz/) (http://s30.postimg.org/4mprxpoal/Screenshot_2015_04_20_18_58_01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/4mprxpoal/)
City style -- Road style
Also included in the zip package is Voluntary png which is another scalable theme but using png bitmaps rather than svg vector images, which conceivably might work better for some users (no style variations though) and Voluntary bugfix, which reduces the extent of unwanted rendering artefacts. Unfortunately this is not scalable and roads will appear too thin on high resolution devices.

Thanks as always to Tobias (and others).

A beautiful theme, thank you very much!  (Voluntary UK, in Locus Pro, Andromaps)

I think I've found an obscure bug, but also a workaround.  I'm seeing lakes, wetlands, meadows, etc. being drawn with a dashed border, which is unattractive and apparently not intended.  These are inner members of a wood multipolygon, the outer way of which (307333650) is also the outer way of a nature_reserve multipolygon.  (I think this is legal.)

When I commented out the two "line" elements in the XML file, the ones following the nature_reserve keyword (line 808), the problem went away.  So apparently, the boundary decoration of the nature_reserve "jumped over and down" to the interior holes of its cousin, the wood multipolygon.  Strange but apparently true.

I've noticed this behavior in some of the other themes too.  Anyway, I have a workaround, so I'm quite happy.
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on May 19, 2015, 10:17:17
The Ministik Lake nature reserve is so vast I find it difficult to see what is happening on the screen but as far as I can see, those excluded areas are not recognised as tagged leisure=nature reserve. They are excluded in the standard osmarender theme as well. Although there is no border to show this so clearly in that theme, the marshes do not show a nature reserve overlay. Whether that is a bug in the mapping or an error in the tagging, I don't know.
Can anyone with greater understanding help?
Title: Re: [Themes] Voluntary UK
Post by: Viajero Perdido on May 19, 2015, 16:11:12
To clarify, those wetlands etc. are being treated as holes in the nature_reserve (wrong), as evidenced by their being drawn with a nature_reserve dashed border and without the ducky nature_reserve fill pattern.  This is in addition to the wetlands etc. also being treated as holes in the wood (correct).  I say wrong/correct because they're only marked as inners of the wood multipolygon, not of  the nature_reserve, though both share the same outer way.

I'm not familiar with osmarender, but the rendering seems correct on all the slippy renderers I have tried (Mapnik, OCM, MapQuest, Humanitarian, ...), and JOSM had no complaints when validating.  So I *think* it's a legal construct.  (EDIT: On closer inspection, it seems OCM and Humanitarian get it "wrong", but it's extremely hard to notice, 1-pixel borders.  Mapnik does it "right", because wrong would be very noticeable.)  Maybe I should just duplicate the outer way...

Anyway, thanks for the quick response.  I doubt it's a theme bug; I simply mentioned it here for lack of knowing where to direct a bug report, and in any case, it's probably a minor one.  Cheers.

It appears to be an issue connected with OpenAndroMaps as the downloadable Mapsforge version does not show the same artefacts -- see http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/north-america/canada/alberta.map
There are other issues on the Ministik sanctuary using the OpenAndroMaps version, most notably the wood is not rendered in the rectangular "holes" in the sanctuary. Apart from that, the OpenAndroMaps map is far better IMHO.
I've referred this to Christian, the originator of OpenAndroMaps at http://www.openandromaps.org/en/oam-forums/topic/polygon-interaction/#post-4769

Revised version in the first post and available in Locus Store (free).
I've revised rendering of tracks and unsurfaced roads for consistency and clarity; revised rendering of private roads and paths, and of "customer" roads for clarity; included kissing gates and turnstiles for new maps from OpenAndroMaps; reduced size of captions of monuments and memorials for consistency.
The kissing gate symbol is a visual pun: a gate with an "x" for a kiss. Extras subfolder in svg folder contains alternative symbols for the kissing gate, and also for dollar and euro areas. Just copy the chosen symbol into the svg folder.

Voluntary Orux is no longer needed -- use Voluntary Atlas for Oruxmaps, Atlas and Cruiser

The main changes are:
- Added Contraflow cycleway in one way street;

Minor (bugfix) update for Locus version in the first post connected with Locus styles.
Title: Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
Post by: gynta on June 13, 2016, 13:37:45
This bundle is blatantly based on the work of others, and the name pays homage to the Volatile set of themes. The colours of the roads are tuned to UK Ordnance Survey conventions. Hiking and cycling routes are shown by simple coloured blobs (green and blue respectively) along the roads and paths involved (if the map supports it, like OpenAndroMaps or the vector maps from Locus Store).
The zip file includes a basic key to roads and paths and a changelog.
There are quite a few other tweaks, (such as changed order of some rendering; changed patterns for allotments, orchards, nature reserves, private access roads; semi transparent woodlands and other areas; changed rendering for canal locks) which I failed to document as I was going along.
From time to time I will update these themes (and reset the download count).
The latest version is always in this post.

Hello John
First thank you for your theme

I struggled little bit with non clear description of files and mess in folder structure.
There is a bunch of types files and folders.
(http://s32.postimg.org/jz42ni9qp/2016_06_13_125930.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/jz42ni9qp/) . (http://s32.postimg.org/wf0sh932p/2016_06_13_130106.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/wf0sh932p/)

I suggest, to create a "all in one" solution because i expected a single "Voluntary UK theme".
A possible solution?

I've reworked the Voluntary theme significantly to take advantage of selectable overlays in themes. Display of hiking, cycle and mountain bike routes can now be switched on or off, as can highlighting for each of them. I've limited the number of options shown to aid ease of use. As far as possible this works for both LoMaps from Locus Store and maps from OpenAndroMaps.
There are other improvements, including embankments and dykes and cycle tracks and lanes on OpenAndroMaps and a Yellow version to help when using overlays such as Strava (see http://www.locusmap.eu/strava-heatmap-in-locus-why-not/).
I have also provided a slightly more limited version for Cruiser and Orux. The "bugfix" version has been retired.
As this is the first release with these features, please treat this as a beta and let me have your comments, please. Once I'm sure it is working well, I'll upload it to the first post as usual.

I've adjusted the styles for the theme so that Cycle, Hiking, City and Road styles function almost as presets with a limited range of tailored options, while Multi and Yellow have a fuller (but manageable) range of options. Locus remembers the settings of the overlays for each style (Neat, Menion!).
The key (same link as post above: http://bit.ly/volkeybeta ) has also been updated.
Voluntary Cruiser is included here for completeness but is not intended for use with the Locus app.
This is still beta, but almost ready for release.

Voluntary theme has been updated. The new version is available in the first post, or through Locus Store in the app.
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296
The main enhancements are:
- Option to show "difficult" paths in LoMaps and maps from OpenAndroMaps
- Names for archipelagos, islands and islets in latest maps from OpenAndroMaps (from 1 Oct 2017)
- Minor but important changes in the order of rendering of one-way streets, route overlays, railways, aeroways, ferries and bridges; white underlay for paths on bridges; revised border rendering.

Multilingual (Mapsforge v4) maps from OpenAndroMaps can now be displayed with the included Voluntary Mapsforge theme, which is only offered as an option when a Mapsforge v4 map has been selected. Voluntary Mapsforge is as similar to Voluntary UK as possible.
Other changes:
- Addition of switchable tracks in City and Roads styles
- "Blue" icons darkened to improve visibility
- Buildings under construction shown in latest OAMmaps
- Cable cars now hang downwards in Voluntary Mapsforge and Cruiser/Orux version
- Velocity colours revised (track/residential/runway/military etc)
- Voluntary UK national/international cycle routes set to red labels (as UK signage)
- Rendering order and style of roads under construction changed
- Alignment of passes; abandoned and active mine and military bunker now shown on OAMaps.
- Peaks appear at zoom levels according to their local prominence on OAMaps.
- Bridges align for cycle tracks on OAMaps.
- Race track bridges, tunnels shown.
- Paths etc slimmed slightly

Apologies for such a quick update but I've realised that many of the wilderness huts (bothies) in Scotland are mapped as both "wilderness huts" and "basic_hut" shelters. I've now modified the two Voluntary themes to prioritise showing (a) if the hut is private (b) if it is a basic shelter (for example, no fire) (c) if it is a true wilderness hut. I think this conveys the best information and hope it works elsewhere. This update changes only wilderness huts and if you are not interested in them you can skip this update.
The theme files are zipped and attached to the  first post in this thread (http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296).

Title: Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on May 25, 2019, 00:00:02
Those actually are not junction numbers but cycle route nodes, which are supposed to be of interest to cyclists.
I admit the size is far too large! We don't have these in the UK so I'd overlooked testing them properly. I'll make some changes in the next version which will be out shortly.
In the meantime, try out this version, attached below.

I think, highway junction names use too much space. To me Locus is not car routing software so I'd like to get rid of such text...

The good side of mfv4+ seems, the priority of city/village/town names works.

Post by: john_percy on May 25, 2019, 11:04:12
@tapio
The modified theme I posted last night for you is named Voluntary MF v5 (and uses v5 scaling for dashed and dotted lines).
The version with no tree symbols is called Velocity MF v5 and has a simplified display.
Junction names only appear in the "roads" style, and shouldn't look like that. There's something wrong here, either in the mapping or in my modified theme. I'll look into it.
Edit: Looks like the link roads have been mapped with extended junction names. Not very helpful. I'll take the road references off link roads to solve that.
Edit 2: Please try the modified theme in the attachment to this post.

Hmm. I have trees in mine! I don't think any files are missing in the archive but either the installation may have gone wrong or the theme cache may be stuck.
Could you please validate the integrity of the theme by a long tap on its name in the theme chooser. That will also kick the theme cache if it is stuck. If it fails to verify, it should tell you of any missing files. You might try deleting the theme from the same long tap menu and installing the modified theme I just added to the previous post.
(The tree symbols do not appear at zoom 13 in the City style, or if the detail box is unchecked.)

@tapio
I've not implemented priorities with any consistency, certainly not different priorities for items according to the active style. I don't want to increase the size of the theme excessively and need to think about whether there are certain key items I should prioritise for different styles. I'm not sure if MF v5, which allows variables in themes, might help.
Forests are intentionally lighter (paler, whiter) than before to give better contrast to paths and tracks through them. As far as I can see, the transitions as you change zoom on MF v4+ are entirely due to Locus's attempt to implement a fade between zooms. With a MF v3 map and the equivalent theme, the fade happens without this effect.

Oh sorry, I thought about if you could misunderstand my writing about the different sections. I didn't mean "priorities" in the technical xml sense, but in a general language sense. I meant that I was just wondering about general priorities in sections, i.e. the Hiking section shows hiking related POI sooner, Bicycle section shows no hiking route dots etc.

I think I like the brighter forest style, will see it "in the wilds" today :D

The Locus store was still on 190219, too hasty, so I took the zipped files.
Alas, no more hiking nodes anymore. See screenshot. Luckily I could go back to the 190219 version through the Locus store and the nodes came back in view.

@Henk van der Spek
Could you try downloading the latest OAM map, please? There was a bug in the previous maps which made it impossible to differentiate correctly between hiking and cycling nodes. I hope this is now sorted, but if not I will look at it again.
Edit: I can confirm that this works with the latest OAM maps. I have however identified another bug in that hiking node numbers appear in all styles. Watch for a theme update shortly to correct this.

I think this is due to multiple layers overlapping. In an attempt to convey as much of the information as possible, most land cover layers are semi transparent, so for example woodland in a park is greener than woodland in open country. In the screenshot, the woodland in the bottom left area is in a country park and that in the top right is not.

@tapio
I have just discovered that this effect may also occur when two maps overlap and Locus attempts to draw both of them, which it may do if "Automatic map loading" is turned on for vector maps.
I'd previously noticed the duplicate drawing effect on contour lines where the contour lines are not identical in the two maps. It doesn't always happen and is not clear to me what triggers the effect.
If the semi transparent woodland is drawn twice, its intensity increases. The workaround is to either turn off "Automatic map loading" or to reselect the appropriate map.
John, sometimes Locus displays your theme bright, sometimes darker, which I like more. I guess it is about painting order. Seen that?
Edit, ah I see I already mentioned it here

Updated and available for download in the first post. Mainly the update is to allow the names of bike and hike routes to appear at a lower zoom in the respective styles. A useful side effect is to enable hike route names to be displayed for LoMaps whether mapped as names (more common in UK now) or refs.

I still use the Bernard/ www.maiwolf.de Locus desert V4 theme when I want to distinguish between sealed & unsealed roads. It seems to be the only of my 6+ themes to reliably do this. Attachment - side by side comparison of desert/ voluntary/ Locus themes with OA MF4 map. sealed road - solid yellow, unsealed - red dots on yellow.
Title: Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
Post by: poutnikl on May 08, 2020, 05:12:46
It seems to me Elevate has maybe even better distinguishing than Desert, and puts more stress to routes over motorways. The truth is Desert distinguishes surfaces at lower zooms.  I like Desert theme very much as well.

I just (re)visitied Elevate & Elements. Unlike the other common themes, both do distinguish unsealed from sealed surfaces, but not to the same extent as Desert V4. In my previous screen capture I forgot to mention I have modified Desert to change original yellow/ gray dashes to yellow/ red dashes, so not a entirely fair comparison to OpenAndro themes. Given many common themes have a specific Cycling setting, or even Locus Cycling theme, I don't understand why they don't attempt to distinguish unsealed ways.

I have improved the rendering of unpaved roads in the Voluntary theme, available in the first post in this thread.
Unpaved roads of various kinds are shown by pecked edges. In general terms, the greater the pecking, the worse the road.
There is no doubt that Elevate/Elements shows far more detailed information and shows it well, but my aim in Voluntary/Velocity has been simplicity and clarity rather than the fullest detail available.

What would be  really cool is if someone could create a small map that is actually a legend built with all the supported ways and nodes, then you would have a legend built that works with all themes.

I'm confused by your map key (Locus version): http://bit.ly/voluntarykey - is it true your theme can render road surface like in the bottom of page 3? Or only with tracktype key? Or in Locus Map but not in LoMaps from the Locus store? I've copied  Voluntary Locus.zip to the proper directory and when I switch to Voluntary UK this highway=unclassified surface=compacted https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/23682693#map=10/51.9955/-1.8107 looks like every other highway=unclassified
From https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:map_tools:theming in the tag-mapping_20170119.zip ,,XML file used for generation of vector maps contains combination of OSM tag KEY-VALUE of elements that are rendered in Locus vector maps" there is no surface key so I posted an idea to implement it: https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/implementation-road-surface-tag-in-lomaps

Road surfaces are only supported in maps from OpenAndroMaps, not in LoMaps

I have uploaded a new version in the first post in this thread (https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296).
Changes are numerous:
- Added wintersports with skiing pistes (downhill and Nordic) and sledding, with difficulty shown, as selectable option in Hiking and Wintersports style.
- Protected areas now shown as gold (access allowed) or pink (access restricted) tint  which is most intense at low zooms and becomes fainter and less distracting as you zoom in.
- Surface for cyclable ways now shown, when cycle tracks and lanes, or Cycling style is selected
- Hiking, cycle and MTB routes can now be displayed independently of paths and tracks
- Improved display of hiking, cycle and MTB routes
- Also added: cutting, hedge, row of trees, water park area (corrected), beach resort, cliff diving, free flying (kite surfing etc), climbing adventure (Go Ape etc), roller skating, skateboard, miniature golf, ice cream vendor, emergency access point, historic stone, memorial stone, boundary stone, natural stone, log barrier, ditch barrier, natural earth bank, block barrier, town hall, art work, water works, sewage works, covered parking, private playgrounds; historic buildings, military buildings distinguished; historic areas shown.
- Icons changed for kissing gates, stile, pharmacy, doctors, toilets, recycling (colour change), playground, emergency phone
- Adjusted zoom levels for roads for consistency

There's a "Yellow" subtheme (idk terminology); what was your basic idea behind it?

Btw I'm seeing this behaviour of displaying the same area usually brighter, sometimes darker. Seems to be related to draw order. Darker is the rare case. Happens unreliably after zooming in/out. For the screenshots, after the darker one I re-applied a preset and Locus painted it brighter. It's the yellow theme here, oam map Germany, Nordrhein-Westfalen.

@tapio This type of behaviour can occur if you have two maps that overlap and you have Autoload Maps turned on for vector maps. Sometimes *both* maps are drawn, one after the other. It particularly affects OAM maps (I think). Woods etc are semi transparent in this theme so as to not hide details underneath them, and if drawn twice (which may happen from the overlapping maps) appear more colourful.
The double drawing does not happen reliably but can often be triggered by zooming out and then in.
I suspect the effect may be more obvious in the Yellow style because the roads attract your attention less than in the other styles in the theme. It shouldn't be anything inherent in the Yellow style as that changes only road colours.
I used to find this bug most annoying when I had overlapping maps with different elevation detail as I got two lots of contour lines which were different. This has been discussed before and the only solution I know of is to turn off Autoload Maps.

Text appears at ZL 14 (numbers according to Locus top bar). IMO there should be nothing at 14, symbol at 15 ,text at 16+
Elevate has it from 14+ as symbol, 16+ as text. But there it is configurable ("Emergency")

Hi John, I know draw order is a thing, but still. After all theme display is not reliable, only POI loading is.

E. g., here a shelter is not shown in an intermediate zoom level... what do you think, why is it happening?

Title: Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
Post by: john_percy on July 04, 2021, 10:20:59
@tapio Almost certainly in this case the shelter symbol is clashing with the "G" of the path reference which has a higher priority (not just display order)
and so the shelter is not shown.
Alternative approaches would be to either give the shelter a higher priority or to make it display=always. A higher priority would mean that in this case the shelter displayed but not the "G"; display=always would mean they both displayed (probably). But there would be other locations where that would not be desirable.

Updated themes with emergency access pois appearing later (Thanks, @tapio)

Also a quick beta version of Voluntary Mapsforge (for OAM maps in Locus), which colour codes hiking routes in the Hiking theme only, as requested by @respublikamroja. 
Colours are:
- international walking routes: blue ██
- national walking routes: red ██
- regional walking routes: green ██
- local or unspecified walking routes: yellow ██

Feedback welcome. If positive, I could extend the colouring to other versions of the theme and to cycle routes in the Cycle style - but not to the multi, yellow, or transparent styles in the themes because they allow the user to show both hiking and cycling routes which would become confusing.

Edit: Please note, this does not show the difficulty of visibility of the route, only its place in the hierarchy.

@tapio It's an unfortunate side effect of using semi transparent fills to allow underlying details to show through. As it seems only to be a problem at zooms 12/13 I'll try reverting to a solid fill at those levels. I had that before but for some reason changed it.

Does this only happen at zoom 14? It looks like the border of a nature reserve area but the same defect is likely to happen at zoom 14 for water parks etc.
If it only happens at zoom 14 I can remove it at that zoom.

<area fill="#14f0a000" />
</rule>
The area fill is semi-transparent so as not to block out the underlying features.
PS Because I can't reproduce the effect you are getting, I can't be sure whether it may be due to other semi transparent fills as well.

Hi Tapio,

In the OSMap theme there is an option "emphasise access land" which allows you to switch off the purple/gold outlines. I suspect this is caused by an issue with the underlying graphic's engine not being able to draw outlines correctly. It also looks like another element is outlining in black too...

does that help?

Karl.

It's the areas with outlines that are not being rendered correctly at this zoom level if they don't fit within a tile. In this example that's the woodland and the white area by the lake near Schrammberg. I'm afraid it's a known weakness of the implementation of the renderer.

Hmm... I am aware if this phenomenon and do relunctantly remove outlines at zoom levels below Z14, and this seems to works for all devices I have tested on so far... so I assumed it would be the same for other devices....

Does this mean outlines should be avoided for all large areas at Z14 too?  This would be a problem for my theme as outlines are a key aspect of the emulating the UK OS map style.

Is there any known workaround we could use at Z14? E.g. using delta offsets, etc?
