Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.21.+ ( 1/2024 )

Wow, Locus root directory on Android/media!
That solves the Locus photo access, too, I suppose.

The URL string has to have x/y (lon/lat) included. Are they in the right place (order)?

Arghhhh, meine Formulierung in Post #16 war etwas mehrdeutig. Mein Thema waren die Dateinamen und Umrisse der jeweiligen Karten, nicht deren Karten- oder POI-Inhalte für die abgedeckten Flächen!
D.h. es gibt nicht für jede OAM-Karte eine LoMap mit gleichem (Außen-) Zuschnitt; und umgekehrt. Für die meisten aber sehr wohl.

If there is a recovery possible or not totally depends on the backup strategy you employed over the years:
- if you had set up the Locus backup to Google Drive, you are fine
- if you had the backup to another folder on the old Pixel and copied manually (does not sound like that, though), you'd be fine as well
- if you have LM 4 Gold with tracks and points replicated into the Locus remote storage, you'd be fine, too (but would have noticed on the new device, I suppose, as Locus should download the stuff)
- if you have another third party cloud feed for tracks (and maybe points), there is a way at least.
The POI and the track databases reside in /Android/data/ folder.
If you should have zip backup files from Locus, you can re-import them from Locus.
If you have only gpx or kml files from somewhere, you can import them into Locus and re-populate its database.
Other than above, I fear your tracks would be history.

Any more thoughts from a Locus export colleague?

Das sind die Neuigkeiten:
- Der OAM-Hintergrund für ZL 8 und höher ist jetzt aus Christians Dezember-2023-Vektorkarten generiert (ausgenommen der Nahe Osten, für den die OSM-Vandalismus-Reparatur noch immer andauert; Status ist dort Sept. 2023).
- In Zoom-Level 5 bis 7 werden Ländergrenzen in rot eingezeichnet und Regionen (in Russland), Teilstaaten (in USA) und Provinzen (in Brasilien und Kanada) in violett.
-Die Anzeige von Ortschaften wurde von Stand 2021 auf den aktuellen Stand gebracht nach einigen Korrekturen und Aufräumarbeiten. Falls dabei etwas schiefging, bitte ich um Nachricht. Danke.

These are the news:
- The OAM background from ZL 8 and up now is rendered from the December 2023 edition of Christian's OAM vector maps (except Near East, for which the OSM vandalism repair is still ongoing - status there is Sept. 2023).
- In ZL 5 to 7 country borders are shown in red, while regions (in Russia), states (in US) and provinces - Settlement rendering was updated from 2021 state uo current, after a number of corrections and cleanups. If you spot something that went wrong, pls. let me know. Thank you.

While this is good news, it does not resolve the dilemma: if you want to have all your track history with you (without sharing it with the world in some online service), you have to swallow enpormous backups in every cycle.
That is something only Menion can fix, right?

Mine has exceeded 1 GB, a real challenge, for backups e.g. and space in general.
I had proposed long time ago to support a second "archive" track DB, that may reside on ext. SD e.g. and will be part of searches, but not part of backups (you do that once to an offline device like OTG USB drive or a PC).
That mechanics should of course include the pruning of the original DB (your point in the post).

PS: der Backup-Folder sollte (im Betrieb) niemals in der privaten Struktur unter /Android/data/... liegen. Denn bei einer eventuellen De-Installation wird der seitens Android zerstört.
Beim S22 gibt es keine externe SD mehr, aber die Backups funktionieren auch mit Foldern auf der oberen Ebene (haben also nicht die Restriktion auf /Android/data).

Bei Neigungswinkel könnten die Leute an ihr Smartphone denken.

NeigungsWINKEL halte ich auch für problematisch.
NeigungsRICHTUNG war der Vorschlag, den Wolfgang genommen hat.

Das habe ich bei gefunden als Definition:

This map provides a colorized representation of aspect, generated dynamically using the server-side aspect function on the Terrain service. The orientation of the downward sloping terrain (0° – 360°) is indicated by different colors, rotating from green (North) to blue (East), to magenta (South) to orange (West).  Flat areas having no down slope direction are given a value of 361° and rendered as gray. This service can be used for visualization or analysis.

"Neigungsrichtung" ist im Moment das einzige deutsche Wort das mir dazu einfällt.

Schöne Grüße

@Menion: re. "@michaelbechtold Can't simulate any problem with overlay. What map should I use for testing, is there anywhere available for download?"
My bad - apologies! When trying to find the smallest possible map combination (world plus overlay) for your reproduction, I immediatley came across an overlay that worked perfectly fine on my device. Next step was to check the Europe overlay (highest resolution (png) private version) - which was missing ZL 12 entirely :-((
Hence Locus did fill in the vector base map - as expected.
Filling ZL 12 now into that special map :-)

No problem.
Where I'm scratching my head is: the painful restrictions by Google for the file system access do exist since Android 11. Hence, if you came from Android 11+ and it worked before until recently (upgrade to 14): what was special about your Android 14 upgrade? HHas the device been wiped on the way to Android 14?
If not wiped, then you can try x-plore or Total Commander to get access to the private data structures where your data should be residing still. But then, on the other hand, also Locus should work seamlessly as the structure would not have changed.
I.e. still some digging to find essential facts ...
