Sorry, we do not even have this in the road plan on the nearest years...

I tried to do a search for "3D" in https://help.locusmap.eu/ but the text must be longer than 2 characters. I wanted to see how many people have voted for this feature. I typed "3d map" but no results. I'm sure there are help desk topics on this subject but the search engine is too naive to help here.

You may check most wanted topic by sorting ideas here: https://help.locusmap.eu/topics/idea/status/all/category/all/sort/popular/page/1

The first topic is currently more than "work in progress", next three are topics from Scully and his Korean friends who bend the voting system a little bit :) and then is 3D support. So one of two most wanted features ... and still > not planned.

A digression sorry, but the search system used by help.locusmap.eu is not terribly good. I understand this is not under control of Locus, but I just make the observation. It is almost impossible to find old topics, even some of my own. When I start typing "3d..." the page suddenly redirects to another, confusing in itself. Typing further "3d map" does find anything. Typing further "3d maps" doesn't even show the actual topic "3d maps by using SRTM file" at the top of the list, or at all even though an exact match.

Terrible search? We know  :(

We already at least three times reported some obvious search problems, but no serious improvement over years ...

A few months ago, we already tried to migrate whole system to Freshdesk (the different solution), but because of existing content = no so simple.

So for now, sorry you have to use it from time to time :).

Any update on this in last four years?

My friend uses Gaia maps and 3D view is the only feature I am envious about. Not that it is a dealbreaker, I can still interpret contour lines with shading, but it is cognitively heavier and so it takes longer.

@Sup - try this - export track as KML then import into Google Earth - it's fantastic. POI are correctly imported as well. I wish I'd known about this possibility years ago.

That would not help me, I use Locus mostly offline, Google Earth isn useless in such a setting. Thank you for the tip though.

No, not at the horizon. Additionally, ASAMM is working on the IOS version, which probably is a huge task.

iOS does not slow down the Android version, fortunately. We are still (only) two guys on the whole Android world and own 3D maps is not in our possibilities. iOS version will use MapLibre library for maps, so there is a huge chance, it will have 3D maps quite easily (at least compared to Android).

Oruxmaps uses its 3D based on Mapbox. Allows you to download a part of the map for offline use. It is understood that Locus Map has other priorities than adding a 3D map

Seeing a track in a 3D environment would for sure be great, especially useful if it was possible in track planner.

I guess that means mapsforge themes like Elevate will not work on iOS, right?

Also, would 3D support mean moving from mapsforge on Android?

Yes, Elevate and other themes won't work on iOS. Simply MapsForge library and its maps/themes are not (and won't be) used on iOS.

I'm thinking about switching from MapsForge to MapLibre on Android as well. It should simplify many tasks on background we now have to do twice. Anyway except loss of many functionalities and features I made in my own map core, my estimate is maybe 2 years of work, so maybe in 2030 :)

I see. I think I would then switch to another app, Elevate is really indispensible to me (unless something equivalent which really shows OSM data in detail exists for MapLibre). But I am just one datapoint.
