Important notes for OpenAndroMaps Theme composers
« on: March 16, 2014, 13:34:22 »
Hi,

There is a new generation of maps upcoming in the next weeks.
No big deal for you - the old Themes will be 100% compatible with the new maps.

However, the last couple of weeks (weekends ;-) ) I changed the structure of my rendering system.
Now its possible to assign special tagmappings to individual maps with ease, and the simplification-factor too.

Next weeks will see maps with contourlines starting at zoom-level 8 (major/medium) 11 (minor) for maps covering wide empty areas.

Starting with iceland (ready for download) with new contourlines, tags like helipad, shelters, alpine_huts, peaks, volcanos at very low zoom-level and a simplification factor of 3.

There are some additions/changes neccessary for the themes, basicly adding code for contourlines from level 8 on and adjusting the zoom-mins.

The whole posting and a preview of the new iceland.map can be seen here:
