@all Locus users.

What do you mean? Are more informations with coloring "ways" usefull? Or is it too ugly?

OLD VScale "ways"


my personal NEW VScale "ways" with colors for grade (difficulty) for paths and tracks, uphill arrows and including informations of hiking or cycling ways.



This is a small example from Mödding (Austria) with OpenAndroMaps (Alps)
Please let me know what you think.  The map becomes a bit ugly or?  ;D

more info is usefull, but with no legend i didn´t know the difference of different colored tracks
Quoteuphill arrows

Looks very useful, the colours stand out  on my phone. The more info I have in the depths of Dartmoor the better.

they're beautiful.
but... too much color / arrows can make a TRACK layed over the trails hard to determine which is the track, and which is the map's trail. just something to think about. :)

Thanks for this hint, I´ll try to figure it out.

So I figured it out. There exists an "incline_dir" tag inside OAM-Maps. It is possible to reverse the arrows.

But can anybody  verify if this is correct?

The ways arround the marker seem (at least for me) to have opposite inclines.

Hey Jusc,
is there something new about your "trail"-theme?
I would like to test this colorful theme if it is possible.

Thank you guys for asking.
But there is no new "Trail" theme. Playing withsome features I made a new colored theme for mainly private use with OpenAndromaps and Locus (store) maps for hiking, because only the Locus maps support the hiking symbols.
There is no support for Atlas and p. e. Oruxmaps today. And there is no map legend today
To get this result I got support from two forum users "TrulloFetzer" and "Zossebart", who tested it al lot and gave me a lot of hints.

Some impressions of it.

That looks great! I'm interested in these themes also because my focus is more on hiking / trailrunning.
Sometimes i use the not precise Kompass maps because of additional Information like names off small hills, cliffs or mountain ranges not available in LoMaps or OAM. Is it possible to implement this?
I like theme rendering on vector maps amd would like to stay with it...

Can you post an example of Kompass maps, to make it a bit more clear?
With Openandromaps you can do something like this, depending of available mapped tags:

Sorry. My mistake :(
Another desire: names of creeks. That would be nice.
If you need another tester: choose me ;)

Typical Kompass map:

OSM beats Kompass hands down regarding accuracy, but Kompass still has the upper hand regardings looks. Obviously thats a matter of taste...

Looks great, much more colorful than Elevate theme.
Because i use most of the time your V-S2 theme, i would pay for this new theme in final version!    :)
