Themes - Vector maps / Re: Docu for OpenAndroMaps
« on: December 29, 2013, 16:00:39 »
Hi Jusc,

I know this issue have to be resolved,
same for the webpage design, the installation videos, themesync, rreworking OAM-Themes,aso... ;-)

In March a big projekt for a customer (not mapping related) will come to an end - this will leave more resources for the OAM-project.

As we dicussed earlier I still hate the way OSMC is implemented in OSM and it will add a lot of overhead to both maps and Themes, however its the best implementation we have so far.
I have to check too if this stuff (overlaying transparent pngs) is working in generic Mapsforge...
A collision detection for the labels would be nice too (I had this for the hike/cycle nodes and it took ages to process).

Troubles & Questions / Locus Actions crashes APP
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:13:34 »
Hi Menion,

I tried to implement the Locus:Actions for downloading and installing OpenAndroMaps themes to locus.
Well, it crashes Locus (the actions from Freizeitkarte too).

Sometimes Locus says that an error occured, sometimes it crashes hard.
There is no errorlog in /locus/logs

Phone: XperiaActive Android 2.3

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

(klick on Android-Phone symbol)

I tried various encodings, unix and dos EOLs, size tag, - no luck

Best regards,

Themes - Vector maps / Docu for OpenAndroMaps
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:05:07 »

I'v published the basic settings (Tag-Transform, TagMapping) of the OpenAndroMaps to make live easier for everyone.
(you have probably seen this already)

Last weeks there I added numerous tags and transforms to OAM so the section contain a changelog too.

Best regards,

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 2.15.X+ (updated 4.9.2013)

@kech: really? damn .. I hoped all is tested and working. Hmm ... oki, I'll look at it
EDIT: please try to delete cache of vector maps by changing theme to another and back. Just for sure

Hi Menion,

Leftbound: peaks, volcanos definitly render leftbound, cache was cleared.

Hi Menion

However, Captions still render leftbound.

What is a mountain pass? Example?
Thanks in advance.

Passhöhe, Sattel tagged as node for roads and paths too.
However its not rendered in Mapnik.

you can the dx parameter remove again from your themes. With new test version there is no longer need for it.

Thanks, done
+ added mountain_pass

Best regards

...In mapsforge is set labeling to Align.LEFT but in the end, all labels was center. I probably fixed this by accident, so this started to work correctly :) ....

Thanks for information!

hi guys, are you sure it was centered by default before?

Absolutely, in Apps with standard 0.3.0 implementation the captions render centered.

your labels are as captions in your renderTheme?

Only the labes of cycle + hiking nodes (these are nodes in osm) - is there a better solution for this in the modified code of Locus?
EDIT: Cycle Nodes are a special kind of cycle navigation/guiding in the Netherlands and Belgium, the best in the world.

I'v provided samples of Locus and standard:
You see that the captions of peaks in locus are leftbound (it was centered a few versions bevore), standard 0.3.0 is centered.

Thanks for this hint. Some locus versions ago was the "dx" parameter added. So you should add it to your render theme.
(I have to update my themes too  :D )

Hi Jusc,

Thanks a million for quick solution, just right for the update of openandromaps this evening.

Hi Menion,

I noticed that caption are rendering left bound (at least since a couple of weeks) - in standard Mapsforge these captions render centered.
While this is usually no big issue it affects the cycle nodes which consits of a circle with the number of the node rendered into it.

This looks not very pleasing in Locus.
Is this a bug, or in other words if you changed the renderer - is there an option for the theme to render those cycle nodes as it was in earlier versions of Locus?

I edited the power lines section as a workaround:

Hi John,

Much better than my renderrule, I'v replaced it with your solution.

Thanks and best regards

what? norway has in Locus Store 330MB for download (550 extracted). On OpenAndroMaps, it will be similar

Norway on OAM is 312MB, its the same Mapwriter as for maps from LocusStore so there cant be much difference.

Whatever kech61 has done for his server, it didn't work properly for me, and it was only after I cleared the browser cache and restarted that I managed to get the latest map on download. (And yes, I also cleared the download folder.) This happened more than once for me, and on more than one updated map, so I know it's true!

Hi John,

I dont say that you are wrong - I would never ever even think in this way, there are so many browsers, so much updates, so many options to be set - I try to stay compatible with all user configurations even if its expensive and even if google punish me in ranking couse of 1sec more of page loading. However, it is impossible, there is always a chance to fail for certain configs.

i do not have cleared the browsercache. when you download files again - it is no question about the cache. you sent new order and get request from the server. cache is a reason, when you have problems with the site and its scripts. here you load the files from servers.

but - i will try it again and let you know what happend. i start this tomorrow because i have to drive my truck now


Usually you are right, on openandromaps all browser caching ist disabled in the W3TC plugin to avoid problems with browsers.
However, there are some browsers with exotic settings enabled that may cause confusion.
An other issue is that downloads are numbered if you have one with the same name in your download folder.
So if you have the downloaded the "update"-download will have the name germany(1).zip

My recommendation is to clear both download history _and_ the physical downloadfolder bevore updating a map.
