Open Andromaps Map Style too "thin"
« on: September 15, 2015, 14:01:32 »
Hey,

I'm using Oruxmaps at the moment and want to switch to Locus.
But using the offlinemaps from

http://www.openandromaps.org/en/
And map style:
http://www.openandromaps.org/en/legend/andromaps_hc_en

The cycle tracks are way too thin and too small.

Comparison:
First one Oruxmaps
Second one Locus

As you see visibility is much better using Oruxmaps.

Is there a way to change it?
I played a bit with the zoom level of the map but I didn't like it.

Tried it thx, it's better but doesn't look as good and it's still rather small.
I can't read which cycle track I follow while driving.

E.G. using Oruxmaps I see that it's track 31
Using Locus it's so thin that I won't see it.

So maybe you'll "challenge" Tobias on that in the OAM forum :-) ?

Der Unterschied wundert mich auch. Welche Auflösung nutzt Du denn?
Du kannst aber einfach  in dem XML File nach z. B. "icn" "ncn", "rcn" etc. suchen und den Wert stroke-width erhöhen.

Have you tried the Voluntary UK theme?  It's available free from the Locus Store.

This one works well with high-res screens, unlike pretty much any other theme I've tried.  (And I've tried every theme I could lay my hands on.)  It has no particular focus on cycling tracks, but does show them.

The cycle tracks are way too thin and too small.

I strongly recommend to switch to Elevate3 XL-Version, here you can chose :
"Kräftige Fahrradrouten" in the Layer-menu.

This should solve the problem.
