Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.1.+ ( 4. 5. 2021 )

Yes, I am aware of this (temporary) limitation. Currently the term in the search bar is only matched against names of points in the local-unspecified language and the language of the client. Other tags are not taken into consideration. (Cannot be taken into consideration directly, as the OSM dataset is not the only possible source of data.) How this search is intended to work (and already works internally, with some minor performance issues):
Let us assume:
- Every point belongs to one or more categories.
- English is the language of client (mobile app or web planner user).
- "wate" is the term in the search bar.

1. A localized fulltext search matches "wate" against names (in local language and in english as specified). As you noticed exactly. Currently, this is the end.
2. Another fulltext search matches "wate" against small dictionaries of synonyms (thesaurus). "wate" could mean: waterfall, watermill, drinking_water, fountain, hot_spring. Why fountain, hot_spring? Because somebody has decided that water and hot_spring are semantically close enough. These little sets of synonyms, language specific,  are configurable on the fly, not stored in a hard manner.
So suggestions are proposed after points that match by their names. Are you searching for drinking_water, waterfall, watermill, fountain perhaps?
3. If we chose one of the suggestion, another search runs (Yes, I actually mean waterfall. Yes, i actually mean all accommodation possibilities combined by typing "room"). This time a localized search matches point by their category, not name. Only category is taken into consideration here, as a source of point can be e.g. Wikipedia, which is not tagged by OSM standards.
Hope this makes some sense, I attach some dictionaries (thesauruses), both specific and more generic to make it more clear.

Elevation data for routing: we have altered brouter internals to use our company maintained dataset, which combines enhanced SRTM source (viewfinderpanorama) and some Lidar sources. However the resolution is 3'' only.

Locus Map 4, prep (Archived) / Re: Online LoMaps & Online POIs

Hi, regarding more generic qualities of places: there already are "attributes" - icons and short verbal description of features like WLAN access, wheelchair accessibility, smoking ... these are visible in the point detail, if present at all (in well mapped areas there are more of them). Diet is already somehow expressed by icons (veg. is "V", non veg. is "fork and knife"). Anyway being more specific about cuisine would be good, I agree. Probably a feature to do for next version of the database.

Can the internal profiles be accessed from file system side? Didn't find them. Just curious.
No, internal profiles are hidden from user. Anyway we keep them in sync with above mentioned public repository. You can modify those publicly available profiles to your liking and place them in Locus/router/profiles2. Then in advanced settings the app recognizes them.

Hi all,
we have updated the set of routing profiles available here:
Profiles are of course credited inside.
Now we want to ask for some feedback again: More specifically, In landscape (both flat and mountains) you are familiar with:
-Is the MTB profile in your opinion: Too easy, too hard, or just about right and safe for an average biker?
-There will be not much distinction between walking and hiking in flat landscape but  there should be some distinction in well mapped mountain areas. Do the results suit their activities?
-road cycling: roads too busy?
-any reason you would not use a particular profile for intended activity?
You can try them here:
And of course using brouter-web directly.
