So could someone answer, what is actual difference between maps in ftp://ftp.mapsforge.org/maps/europe/ and in http://www.vectormaps4locus.eu/. Because maps there have different dates and totally different sizes, like 76MB and 166MB.

difference is for sure bounding area. I defined all countries manually by my own (to be true, it's work of my girlfriend) and all places have around 10km bounding area around borders. It's causing bigger files. If this is only reason ... don't know

Thank you.
I love these vector maps because I live near a border.

hello
is there a possibility to use the vektor maps of the App OsmAnd. I like the style of these maps more than these of locus because the forest tracks are pictured with more details. The vektor maps of OsmAnd have the format ".obf" Is there a chance to convert it to .map format of the locus maps?
best regards

Somehow map of Latvia from http://vectormaps4locus.eu/Europe-General does not look the same as online map from OSM... all water bodies are empty spaces and roads in woods are missing...

I know it looks bad but this is a known issue in the underlying mapsforge library, cf. http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/issues/detail?id=185.

More then water bodies I meant that e.g. this place http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=56.96 ... 6&layers=M on OSM has some roads, but in map from http://vectormaps4locus.eu/Europe-General there is no such roads, only secondary trails.

Hi guys,

I am thinking about how cool it would be to have vector maps generated also with terrain contours ... and thinking about that for a quite long time ;-)

After release of mapsforge v0.3 library, it looks like as finally possible option. I have googled a bit and found some resources how to do it.

like this:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Srtm2Osm
and this:
http://oruxmaps.foroactivo.net/t2216-co ... xmapsforge

Doesn't look too complicated. As I understand it correctly, just terrain contour data needs to be processed and merged to one osm file... and then to generate mapsforge mapfile with mapwriter using some additional configuration entries....

For viewing... a custom rendertheme has to be used.

Is here someone experienced enough to review this option as possible or not ? ;-)

I am looking forward to your feedback(s)
J.
