    Hi Tobias and Christian,
    I’m currently testing the new search offline POI function in the beta version of OruxMaps.
    I realized also using Cruiser, which lack significant tags that you haven’t included in the data, important in a hiking cartography, of objects that are still visible on the map. These are:
    – place=locality
    – tourism=wilderness_hut
    – historic=archaeological_site
    – natural=cave_entrance

    Best Regards

    I see that those tags are missing in the official Mapsforge poi-mapping.xml configuration with the OSM tags.

    Does OpenAndroMaps use the same poi-mapping?
    I can update it (or you can provide a pull request) as we agree at what point in categories tree we can put those tags.

    The used POI mapping is here:
    http://download.openandromaps.org/pois/oam-mapping.xml
    It has yet to be compared and adapted to the current tag-mapping of the maps.

    I also realized that some important tags for outdoor use are missing, and I think changing the categories to something more logical like the Elevate overlays (instead of mainly OSM tags like amenity=, leisure=,…) makes also sense to me.

    Up to now the POIs were mainly offered so that app providers have a reason to include the POI feature. As finally OruxMaps included them in the beta versions this week, it’s time to invest a bit more effort :-)

    Hi Emux,

    Does OpenAndroMaps use the same poi-mapping

    For 95% I think.
    However, I agree with @Tobias that layer-structure + tags should be adopted to Elevate Theme.

    Best regards

    Also POI writer needs some improvements regarding the issue mentioned by @Tobias. :)
