voluntary UK maps issue
« on: June 19, 2015, 04:57:14 »
Found a issue at a location and want to see if it can be recreated.
In using locus store Iowa vector map USA at this location.


Castle Grove, IA, N 42°16.891' , W 91°16.035'

The issue I'm having is a section of a local creek is showing in road theme, but disappears in voluntary theme.

A screenshot would be very helpful, so I can tell exactly which section of the creek is not displaying. I have a suspicion that this is connected to a test I included to avoid some really horrible artefacts when the "riverbank" tag is not used correctly in the map but I can't be sure at present. Alternatively it could be some weird memory issue.

There is in fact an error in the mapping. The riverbank tag, which defines an area of river is not a closed area. This causes the blue of the river to spill over onto the land in other themes. Check out further along the same river at N42°16.537' W91°15.664'. The Voluntary theme fixes that bug, at the expense of making the river disappear.
I've revised the Voluntary theme to partially address this issue but the real solution is to edit the map. The revised version is available on this forum at http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296.

N42°16.537' W91°15.664'
Internal Road theme | Revised Voluntary theme
|

N 42°16.891' , W91°16.035'
Internal Road theme | Voluntary theme | Revised Voluntary theme
| |

That's now resolved if you download and install the revised theme from the link in my post above. I'm afraid you have to do this manually at the moment as the revised version is not yet available in the store.
