OSM-FR
« on: February 16, 2015, 12:35:20 »
Hello,

1st post so many thanks for this great app ! ;)

If it's possible, i would like to add an OSM based map : OSM-FR which is a little more detailed than the standard mapnik for France. HERE a link to see what it looks like and HERE a GitHub link i've found about it if it is needed.
I'm total newbie and i don't know how to proceed. Maybe add an .XML file in the custom folder but what code writing in it ?? Maybe something more simple ? I'm swimming in deep water !! ???

Someone to help me ?

Many, many thanks ! :)

Hello Chon,

there are two options

1. add map directly to application - for this I need a confirmation from our map expert Peter (currently on a vacation) and also from map provider. Then I should add map to next Locus release.

2. add map over XML file. This is anyway advanced method and if you don't mind, lets wait a week till Peter returns and I'll then write you more.

2. add map over XML file.

If you don´t want to wait a week, add the attached two files to your Locus/mapsOnline/custom directory.
(To see/download the attached files you have to login into the forum)
Don´t forget to restart Locus afterwards.

@menion,
I also prefer your idea to place the map into Locus app directly.  I can wait a week :D
Regards J.

Wahoo !

Thanks for those very quick replies and solutions ! ;)

@Menion : Your 1st solution is obviously THE solution and it would be really nice to have permission.
When you say that if possible, you should add map to next Locus release, you mean that it could be add in the app itself or in providers.xml by Tweak ?

@Jusc : Waiting for THE solution, i will try yours because i'm impatient. :P
The .PNG file must be paste in the custom/ folder or in the custom/icons/ folder ?

Many thanks again !

Map Tweak is unofficial tool done by one of Locus users. Team behind Locus has nothing to with it.

So if I say "add to Locus", I mean directly to list of maps or probably in this case, to Locus Store as another online map source.

no,  place both files in  Locus/mapsOnline/custom.
You can use every "fitting" *.png if it´s name is like the map you want to display.

@Chon
In first step (to add map into Locus Map) I'd like to know the difference between standard mapnik. Is the OSM-FR map really so important? I only want to avoid the situation to have the same maps in Locus app.
Thanks
Petr

Hello,

The OSM-FR is not "really so important", as you can see on my link, it is just a little bit more detailed with some more POIs for France (maybe for other countries either but i don't know).
An other important thing for me, the OSM-FR can be downloaded for an offline use wheras OSM Standard Mapnik can't.
