Maps / Re: Digital Swisstopo maps free of charge from 1 March 2021
« on: February 09, 2021, 13:13:56 »
Hi,
yes, we'll offer these maps also for free. At this moment are Swisstopo maps charged in the store. We'll change these items in the store to be free from 1.3.2021 and we'll also prepare the new version of Locus app (during March/April) that should offer other Swisstopo maps - eq. satellite map.
Thanks, Petr

Maps / Re: LiDAR- Digital Terrain Models (DTM) of European countries
« on: December 12, 2019, 12:39:59 »
After lots of hours of work, finally the latest version of DTMs of Spain are ready for Download:

https://data.opendataportal.at/dataset/dtm-spain

I therefor used the latest available source-files of the Spanish survey Institute. Most improvements are in regions which lack of LIDAR source data in the previous DTMs: Andalusia and the Balearic Islands.
Now the whole territory of Spain is covered by high quality LIDAR data.

Hallo Roland
ich hab verschiedene Einstellungen und Routingprofile getestet, leider erhalte ich immer das von dir beschriebene Ergebnis sobald ich den Cache #9 als Zwischenziel angebe.
Wenn ich aber kurz vor oder nach dem Cache  mein Zwischenziel mit der + Taste hinzufüge passt die Wegführung.
Am Cache selbst kann es auch nicht liegen ich hab einen Wegpunkt mit den Koordinaten des Caches erstellt aber auch da zeigt sich der Fehler.

Tiramisù as OpenTopoMap

for the topography, and exploration on the maps

only for V4 maps!

For V3 (lomaps and other)  TOTM 1.9.2 - > https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=6027.0

in the future it will be slightly improved:
  • all water except springs (rivers, streams, lakes, canals, etc.)
  • all railway and tram
  • all labels
  • setting priorities
  • streets, driveways and younger roads in the direction of greater elegance (at the moment - too thick)
on my smartphone 282 ppi, 320 dpi

It also works well on Oruxmap, Cruiser, and most likely in other mapsforge-compatible programs
(tested in Oruxmaps 7.4.22, Cruiser 1.7)



Map: ESRI satellite;  Overlay 85%: OAM Ural ML;  Layer "Terrain" in the theme is OFF
Waiting for comments and constructive criticism.

To the Locus and OpenAndroMaps community,

I finally adapted also my "desert" theme and created a new "desertV4" theme, which can be used with the new multi-language mapsforge V4 OpenAndroMaps. It is compatible only with these new maps!
Please take the theme as a draft. I am happy for any comments, suggestions and there will be constant improvements.

Hi Locus community,

I made a simple icon pack similar to the marker icons used in OsmAnd – they are well visible also on detailed maps, that’s why I like that style. Maybe they are useful for you, too.

Best, Lucas

Ich hätte kein Problem 50 Euro für eine App zu zahlen, wenn ich dafür nicht ewig Fehlerreporte schreiben müsste und dann die Reparaturen mehrmals nachgefixt werden müssten.

Also wenn ich überlege, was ich an Zeit reingesteckt habe, damit Menion kapiert hat, was für Daten googlemaps mit Locus austauscht, damit der Austausch zwischen den beiden Apps sinnvoll funktioniert. Aber bei Victor von Osmand habe ich mich auch schon gewundert, was ich ihm alles testen sollte, damit eine Funktion läuft.

Ab und zu frage ich mich, ob man Appentwickler wird, weil einem nichts anderes übrigbleibt.

Ich habe beruflich viel mit Microsoft Produkten zu tun und wäre heilfroh, wenn dort auch nur annähernd so schnell auf Fehlerberichte (auch sehr ausführliche) reagiert werden würde wie bei Locus. Und ich wage zu behaupten, dass Microsoft etwas mehr Ressourcen zur Verfügung hat. Teilweise sind Bugs aber, trotz vielfachen Reports und teilweise sogar vorhandenen User-Workarounds, auch nach Jahren noch vorhanden - und leider nicht nur unbedeutende Bugs.
Ich würde sogar so weit gehen zu sagen, dass mir nur wenige Apps / Programme bekannt sind, bei denen derart schnell auf Fehlerberichte reagiert wird.
Dazu ist der Entwickler sogar noch offen dankbar über Feedback und Fehlerberichte und sehr aktiv im Forum.

Wenn ich dann noch bedenke, was Locus alles an neuen Features, Funktionen und Verbesserungen erhalten habe, seit ich es vor vielen Jahren gekauft habe bin ich durchaus bereit erneut dafür zu bezahlen.

To the Locus and OpenAndroMaps community,

after many try-and-error runs I was able to adapt my "outdoor" theme and create the new "outdoorV4" theme, which can be used with the new multi-language mapsforge V4 OpenAndroMaps. It is compatible only with these new maps!
In general, I have tried to make the theme identical to the existing "outdoor" theme. Due to problems with many tags used for the configuration of font sizes and priorities, many small changes had to be made. You will find more details (i. e. which tags had to be ommitted) an my website www.maiwolf.de/locus/ [in German].
Please take the theme as a draft. I am happy for any comments, suggestions and there will be constant improvements. Maybe, I will adapt in the future also my existing "desert" theme.

Discussion/New features / Re: Update of map core (2019)
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:19:59 »
Sorry for a delay, quite a lot of other work over week.

So back to the problem with themes. I do not have the best solution. Rewriting the whole system and do it "theme-centric" (renderer selected based on the version of the theme) instead of "map-centric" (renderer selected based on the version of the map) is quite a big change. And because everything slowly moves to use new engine & new themes, it looks to me like a waste of time.

SO new setup of system:
V3 maps: offer V3 (basic + locus-extended) themes
V4+ maps: offer V4+ themes

I belive this won't be a big problem. Users that use LoMaps, usually use internal themes or themes with "locus-extended" system. Users who wants to use OpenAndroMaps, usually use themes for these maps.

@zossebart
hmm two same theme selectors in one view do not make too sense, agree. The crash is weird anyway in the next version will be only one button to select the theme, so hopefully, it will help.

WMS maps: any map for test?
EDIT: wms sample not needed, I see one big problem, thanks!

@flyingman_ch
only a side effect of horizontal GPS filter you have enabled in settings > GPS. This thin line only displays real GPS coordinates received by Locus Map and may be used for comparing with tracks recorded with Track recording. I'll leave it there for a while for testing and remove it later. But do not worry about it, it has no effect on anything.

So....
Nun hab ich selbst etwas rumprobiert.  8)
Hab mir das Armband Band 3 von Xaomi gekauft (~28 EUR). Damit funktioniert das Ganze, aber minimal umständlicher als ich dachte. Der Fitnesstracker hat im Netz den Ruf für wenig Geld eine recht brauchbare Pulsmessung zu liefern.
Vorgehen:
- ich muss erst in der APP von Xaomi eine Aktivität (Radfahren) starten damit die permanenten Pulsmessung am Armband aktiviert wird.
- dann ganz normal im Locus die Trackaufzeichnung starten.
- einmalig muss man im bluetooth Manger im Locus das Armband als Herzfrequenzsensor koppeln (das geht nur bei gestarteter aktivität in der Fitnesstracker APP!)
 
Zum Schluss der Tour hat man neben dem Steckenverlauf und den Höhendaten auch ein schönes Profil seiner Herzfrequenz. So hatte ich mir das vorgestellt. :)

Evtl. teste ich noch ein Armband von Huawei Band 3 Pro

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] TOTM
« on: January 16, 2019, 09:17:05 »
V4 is possible if the developer supports locus-extended= "1", scale-line-dy-by-zoom=" 1 " and other features.

For now - update the V3 theme - it is more accurate. (in the first post - ver1.9.2)

To all users of Locus and Openandromaps,

I have just published some major updates for my themes "outdoor" and "desert" and added the new theme "navigation". You can find some description (in German) and the downloads also on:

 www.maiwolf.de/locus/
Please use always my website to download the NEWEST version of the theme!

Here a brief summary of changes:
- the 3 themes use a common backbone, meaning in general they use the same styling and symbols
- they differ in zoom levels, detail levels and amount of selectable features
- they can be used in parallel on the same device
- all symbols (nearly) are now switched to svg (scalable vector graphics)
- the most predominant symbols can be switched to be only small circles to not overpopulate and confuse the map
- the "navigation" theme is thought to be used for car navigation and shows road bigger but leaves off some other elements (i. e. elevelation lines)

Feel free to use them and send me feedback.
I am constantly trying to improve these themes.

Regards

Here are some screenshots and the themes for download.
