Title: convert Oruxmaps (xml and db) to Locus RMaps sqlite
Post by: opio on May 23, 2013, 15:35:40
Hi,

i found very nice bergfex.at map of austria (1.5GB), but in OruxMaps format.
I'm looking for way to convert to Locus RMap sqlite format, because i like Locus :)

Is it possible?

Thank you, Andrew

hi Andrew
  question is, is it needed? Did you tried to use directly this format in Locus? Try to put your files into Locus/maps directory, if they'll work

Thank you for answer, that's perfect

there is another complication i forgot to mention.. File is too big for my phone
For another map (cz/sk shocart in RMaps) i always create smaller map region i need, using MOBAC

But MOBAC cannot read offline OruxMap format (or i didn't find howto), RMaps was ok

just for fun :) I was looking into sqlite databases of both
OruxMaps defines topleft,topright,bttmleft,btmright in XML and has tiles in databases "x", "y"
RMaps defines center of map and in database also "x","y" and "z" for layer, "s" i don't know
So if there is no GPS projection differences, converting should work
