Minor bugfix for Locus version in the first post.

Updated and available for download in the first post. Mainly the update is to allow the names of bike and hike routes to appear at a lower zoom in the respective styles. A useful side effect is to enable hike route names to be displayed for LoMaps whether mapped as names (more common in UK now) or refs.

Thank you. Downloaded and updated for field testing today. Looks good as ever and the Dutch hike or bike nodes are showing! Map Netherlands OAM OSM ML4.

Some further (minor) changes to ensure more consistent display of cycle and hiking routes, available in the first post.

I still use the Bernard/ www.maiwolf.de Locus desert V4 theme when I want to distinguish between sealed & unsealed roads. It seems to be the only of my 6+ themes to reliably do this. Attachment - side by side comparison of desert/ voluntary/ Locus themes with OA MF4 map. sealed road - solid yellow, unsealed - red dots on yellow.

It seems to me Elevate has maybe even better distinguishing than Desert, and puts more stress to routes over motorways. The truth is Desert distinguishes surfaces at lower zooms.  I like Desert theme very much as well.

I just (re)visitied Elevate & Elements. Unlike the other common themes, both do distinguish unsealed from sealed surfaces, but not to the same extent as Desert V4. In my previous screen capture I forgot to mention I have modified Desert to change original yellow/ gray dashes to yellow/ red dashes, so not a entirely fair comparison to OpenAndro themes. Given many common themes have a specific Cycling setting, or even Locus Cycling theme, I don't understand why they don't attempt to distinguish unsealed ways.

Andrew Heard!
Sorry, but what kind of tag in the OSM marks these sealed roads?
  •  

john_percy

Either surface or tracktype.

John, with all due respect, which tags specifically mark these very sealed roads so that you can speak objectively. Or, a collection of tags?

I have improved the rendering of unpaved roads in the Voluntary theme, available in the first post in this thread.
Unpaved roads of various kinds are shown by pecked edges. In general terms, the greater the pecking, the worse the road.
There is no doubt that Elevate/Elements shows far more detailed information and shows it well, but my aim in Voluntary/Velocity has been simplicity and clarity rather than the fullest detail available.

@Magellan - I included GPS lat/lon in the screen capture if you were interested to see an example.

If you can access OpenStreetMap editor then check @ https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=17/-42.51302/147.64433. South side is "surface" marked "asphalt" and north side is marked "unpaved".

@john_percy - nice improvement. For me your new "pecked edges" are more visible than the Elevate/Elements subtle difference of yellow/white versus yellow/gray coloring to distinguish sealed/ unsealed surface.

@john_percy - it appears the "pecked edges" isn't working correctly for residential roads - see comparison in screen capture - 05/05/2020 LHS, 08/05/2020 RHS. Approx. https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=18/-42.86144/147.29515.
