Title: Place names
Post by: gauvins on November 01, 2021, 14:55:16
Would it be possible to improve place name rendering?

Attached is a screen shot of France taken from the LoMaps city theme, compared to Stamen's toner (my device has a grayscale display).

Notice that the LoMap shows Argenteuil instead of Paris most likely because Argenteuil is rendered before Paris.

Hi,
this is a really really an old, currently unsolvable problem for LoMaps maps. A possible solution is to use a more modern version of the map library. You may try it with OpenAndroMaps, which currently uses this V4 version of the MapsForge library. Thanks for understanding.

Yup, use OAM maps and an MFv4 capable theme.
