[MAP Overlay] Wanderreit Hill shade and Topo
« on: May 01, 2012, 15:36:34 »
Sorry, I can't stop. :)

http://www.wanderreitkarte.de have a nice looking hillshade with included contour lines, and a topo layer they use on top of a simple base layer.

As locus already have the map included, the Tile Usage policy should also apply to this Overlay: http://www.wanderreitkarte.de/licence_en.php

Don't download tiles from zoomlevel 16 and higher!

if it does not exist, create a /sdcard/locus/mapsOnline/custom/provider.xml and insert this text:
If it already exist edit it and just insert the <provider*> ... </provider> stuff inside the <providers> ... </providers> xml tags.

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<providers>
<provider id="10231" type="0" visible="true" required="false" background="-1">
<name>OSM - layers</name>
<mode>Wanderreit topo overlay</mode>
<area></area>
<url><![CDATA[http://www.wanderreitkarte.de/topo/{z}/{x}/{y}.png]]></url>
<zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
<zoomMin>14</zoomMin>
<zoomMax>26</zoomMax>
<tileSize>256</tileSize>
<attribution>Topo overlay tiles come from http://www.wanderreitkarte.de, Terms of Use: http://www.wanderreitkarte.de/licence_en.php</attribution>
</provider>
<provider id="10232" type="0" visible="true" required="false" background="-1">
<name>OSM - layers</name>
<mode>Wanderreit hill shade overlay</mode>
<area></area>
<url><![CDATA[http://www.wanderreitkarte.de/hills/{z}/{x}/{y}.png]]></url>
<zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
<zoomMin>16</zoomMin>
<zoomMax>26</zoomMax>
<tileSize>256</tileSize>
<attribution>Hill shade overlay tiles come from http://www.wanderreitkarte.de, Terms of Use: http://www.wanderreitkarte.de/licence_en.php</attribution>
</provider>
</providers>

Now you have new maps you can use as overlays in 2.3.X (Main menu / Functions / Map overlays), you can add this function to the right toolbar for quicker use...

For the hill shade layer, if you download them, you should never redownload them, because they will not change.

Hm, looks like they just added the hill shade to their Topo layer. The shading layer seems to be no longer available on its own.
