Digital Swisstopo maps free of charge from 1 March 2021
« on: February 02, 2021, 18:20:43 »
From 1.3.2021 the Swisstopo maps are free to download.
Could these be integrated into Locus-Map?

Hi,
yes, we'll offer these maps also for free. At this moment are Swisstopo maps charged in the store. We'll change these items in the store to be free from 1.3.2021 and we'll also prepare the new version of Locus app (during March/April) that should offer other Swisstopo maps - eq. satellite map.
Thanks, Petr

Unfortunately, these are only the maps from 2016.
Can't you provide a direct download?

The map is downloaded directly from the Swisstopo map server and you get the latest version of map.
There was the wrong version name in the store (already renamed)

These maps 'only' contain the zoom levels 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15, but there are also maps for the scale 1:10000. Could this scale be included in the download?
