Hi Peter,
thx much - the xml Code works great !
It´s really a pitty, that higher zooms are "not existing", because my missing tiles of already dowloaded areas are just in these zoom factors.
But - let´s hope for menions ideas.

kind regards
Rob

Probably a workaround for Bergfex.

The X regions are quite large. So it might be worth the work to make separate maps for the regions. Zoom Level 14 goes from X=86 (Liechtenstein) to X=89 (Bratislava). Zoom 15 from 172 to 179.
Here's an example for one region for each zoom level:
<!-- BergFex Austria (id 70) -->
<provider id="10070" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">
<name>Bergfex</name>
<mode>Topo</mode>
<area>Oesterreich</area>
<url><![CDATA[http://static5.bergfex.at/images/amap/{z}/{z}_{x}_{y}.png]]></url>
<zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
<zoomMin>16</zoomMin>
<zoomMax>21</zoomMax>
<tileSize>256</tileSize>
</provider>
        <!-- for Zoom 14 adjust between 86 and 89-->
<provider id="10071" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">
<name>Bergfex</name>
<mode>Topo 14_1</mode>
<area>Oesterreich</area>
<url><![CDATA[http://static5.bergfex.at/images/amap/{z}/87/{z}_{x}_{y}.png]]></url>
<zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
<zoomMin>22</zoomMin>
<zoomMax>22</zoomMax>
<tileSize>256</tileSize>
</provider>
        <!-- for Zoom 15 adjust between 172 and 179-->
<provider id="10072" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">
<name>Bergfex</name>
<mode>Topo 15_1</mode>
<area>Oesterreich</area>
<url><![CDATA[http://static5.bergfex.at/images/amap/{z}/174/{z}_{x}_{y}.png]]></url>
<zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
<zoomMin>23</zoomMin>
<zoomMax>23</zoomMax>
<tileSize>256</tileSize>
</provider>

And once cached, it does no harm to cached tiles when you modify the X folder in providers.xml. This way you can collect combined areas in your tile cache.

Grüße aus Dresden nach Österreich! Ich komme bald mal wieder.

I am trying to create a provider xml for the following map:

http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu

Its png url is: http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu/srtm/9/140/90.png


<provider id="2222" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">
  <name>Turaterkep</name>
  <mode>Turaterkep</mode>
  <area>Hungary</area>
  <url><![CDATA[http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu/srtm/{z}/{x}/{y}.png]]></url>
  <zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
  <zoomMin>8</zoomMin>
  <zoomMax>30</zoomMax>
  <tileSize>256</tileSize>
  <extraHeader>Referer#http://test.at/</extraHeader>
</provider>

The problem is I got an "Unknown error" after "Loading..." in the place of the tiles... Can someone help me what is the problem?

these maps are in some location map projection (together with specific url to tiles) so this is not possible to simply add to Locus. Question is also terms of use of this map. If they offer WMS server, that's best way how to add special maps

I've contacted the owner of the website (http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu)   and he sent me the following xml, which should work in Locus with his site:

<providers>
   <provider id="1000" type="0" visible="true" required="true" background="-1">
      <name>Turaterkep</name>
      <mode>Turaterkep</mode>
      <area>World</area>
      <url><![CDATA[http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu/tiles/{z}/{x}/{y}.png]]></url>
      <zoomPart>{z}-8</zoomPart>
      <zoomMin>8</zoomMin>
      <zoomMax>16</zoomMax>
      <tileSize>512</tileSize>
      <extraHeader>Referer#http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu/</extraHeader>
   </provider>
</providers>

If I open a tile manually (eg. http://turaterkep.hostcity.hu/tiles/9/140/90.png) I actually get the image.
If I add this xml to Locus I'll be able to select the map, but after the "Loading..." phase I get an "Unknown problem".

Can you help me what is the problem with the file?

The website's owner is also willing to help to ease the life of Hungarian Android users so any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks for your help.

thanks, map is now working (there was one small issue in locus because of atypical size of tiles). May you send me contact to owner? I need some answers from him before I'll add these maps into Locus
