Yes, I understand it. Some joker turned into eight main cycle path to the path. Tens of kilometers. I have already fixed it, but the change will not be reflected only after the Lomap update. A stupid joke. The problem is not on the map topic, but in eight documents. The cycleroute has been there for many years, so I never thought there was a problem with her.

Quote from: balloni55 on August 02, 2023, 13:12:44Question, why are the bike paths displayed differently depending on the used map?
I can't check directly on the maps you are looking at but there are various possible reasons
- OAM includes more information about surfaces and accessibility than Lomaps do
- OAM interprets lcn=yes as network=lcn, resulting in more local cycle networks showing than for Lomaps. This is possibly the case in your example.
- OAM does many similar transformations on the data, producing more information in general
- OAM attaches all routes to the highway they follow, meaning it is possible to know if bike and hike routes are running together, for example
- OAM preserves only the route of the highest "importance" of each type (bike, hike, MTB) when several routes run together. Lomaps preserves all routes. The theme then displays the route of the highest importance but if there are several routes of the same importance running together, the selection of which route reference to label it as is effectively random.

Recently, I drove more than 1000 km on the bike according to the map theme of the Voluntary Beta from 1.8.2023. The map theme is very clear and it was driven very well in Poland and the Czech Republic. Thanks John.

The latest version of the Voluntary theme has been uploaded, with support for cycle super highways, optional emphasised cycleways, improved marking of frontiers and other boundaries.
Thanks for support and helpful suggestions.

Hello,

first of all thanks for the theme I really like it. Lately I have been travelling a lot on the Balkans. Unfortunately open street maps are not very accurate on the Balkans. A lot of gravel roads did not have a type assigned. It was often confusing that a road without a type is better marked than a gravel road (thicker line and bright yellow). All the roads that did not have a type were gravel roads, not a single one was paved. But they appear to be paved.

I think it would improve the theme if untyped roads would marked in a different way, so they don't appear to be better than gravel roads.

@finn
Could you give me an example, please?
Any road that is mapped as gravel will have the edges dashed and the central core according to its status. It's hard for the theme to make up for deficiencies in the mapping.

Voluntary theme is now available to install from within the Locus app via the Locus Store once again.

Latest update removes a workaround that is unnecessary with the latest maps. This now gives a better display if a bike or hike route runs along a major road.

@john_percy - suggestion - given your theme can be for cyclists, optionally display bike parking as POI? Attached is map around OSM node https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/6804728475. Maybe I have missed a theme setting? Online LM route planner correctly displays the bike park @ https://web.locusmap.app/en/?lat=-42.883736&lng=147.333798&z=19&map=hikeBike (although it is tiny, nearly invisible), as does online bikerouter @ https://brouter.m11n.de/#map=19/-42.88322/147.33309/standard.

Hi John, if there are several tourist marks on one trip, Voluntary shows only one. See SCR. Would it be possible to view everyone as in the Lomap topic? The colorful dots along the road are not much visible.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.

I decided not to do that as it would vastly inflate the size of the theme. The code required to display just one marker is a large proportion of the theme already. Thanks for your understanding.
Edit: It does look like the colours of the small squares could be modified to make them more visible. I'll add that to my list.
Edit2: The visibility of the small squares has now been significantly improved.

@Andrew
Do I see in another post that bicycle parking is not included in the offline maps themselves, so it can't be displayed in any offline theme?

It sadly appears not possible! see https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=8518.msg74298#msg74298

My apologies @john_percy (so many ways in Locus to do things) - as mentioned elsewhere I can instead search LoPoints(offline) > Hiking & Cycling > Bicycle parking. It works. Although as general comment, the LoPoints unfortunately blend in very well in this use-case, with the overall clutter of a map, so nearly impossible to see. There could be a "high contrast" set of icons for temporary searched LoPoints.

BTW while creating the screen capture, I noted with this theme more "bike park" icons than with @tapio theme. Not a criticism tapio ;-) Workaround/ tip - switch to Locus road theme, which has the least "clutter" when doing search LoPoints(offline) - see 2nd screen cap.

The visibility of the small squares that indicate OSMC marker colour has been significantly improved, and a couple of bugs discovered and dealt with.

Hi, would it be possible to move street names? Somewhere they completely overlap the substrate. This is unpleasant when cycling, because the street can be easily overlooked. It would be good to always see a piece of white street area.
