Wishes for Locus to use
« on: May 06, 2011, 15:56:14 »
Hello,

I hope you understand my english. It's no so good, but I'll try it.  :roll:

OSM is a service, everyman can be help to update files. Therefore very often a new version of maps is available. I'm also an very active mapper at OSM.

I work very often with maps of OSM. I have the village Datteln-Horneburg, the towns around Datteln and the cities of Dortmund and Essen as downloaded file on my SD-Card.
But somtimes I need a new map file. Then it's difficult, to remenber, which card ist available, cause I have only a small display.

I want to like have a button behind the downloaded maps, to start a new download of the same files.

Therefore I would like to have a possibility to use this two maps also in Locus:
- ÖPNV-Karte (http://www.öpnvkarte.de - yes, with the german "Ö")
- Open-PT-Map (http://www.openptmap.org)
- Open-Link-Map (http://olm.openstreetmap.de)
- New German Map Style (http://www.openstreetmap.de/karte.html)

My greates wish was a directly order, to act directly via JOSM or Potlatch with Locus to update the map directly on the device. But that's just a thing for VGA oder better devices. Not for my HTC Wildfire.  :twisted:

Is it possible, to get a new form for downloads?

I would like to download direcly about coordinates.
Via a centerpoint and a circle around, and the secend form with four coordinates for N-, E-, S- and W-border.
Maybe with a dialog system for the maps and the other types. Or all maps inside of an city border.

The other things in Locus are to good, to get wishes for.  :D

The most disturbing thing is just the thing with the AndroidPit-Licence. But that's another story.  :oops:

Thx for this gerat app(s).

Nils

may I add
 http://www.bergfex.at:   http://www.bergfex.at/?mapstate=48.1633 ... 9,12,b,180
Then click to "Vollbild" upper right and you see the map fullscreen.

Would be very fine to download directly detailed areas around tracks.

Thx in advance
krg Rob

hi rob,
  maps you noticed cannot be added to locus. When you click on bottom "Terms of use" you'll see that they use same terms as Google maps, so I cannot use them

about downloading maps along track, this is already there. On download screen, click "Select path" and you should select "create new by yourself" or use any of you already loaded or recorded in locus ...

thx menion .. it´s a pitty, but OK, I understand your concerns.
Downloading along tracks - I know. It was referred to Bergfex, but it´s obsolete now.

regards Rob
