Important note for theme composers

Hi,

There is a new generation of maps upcoming in the next weeks.
No big deal for you – the old Themes will be 100% compatible with the new maps.

However, the last couple of weeks (weekends ;-) ) I changed the structure of my rendering system.
Now its possible to assign special tagmappings to individual maps with ease, and the simplification-factor too.

Next weeks will see maps with contourlines starting at zoom-level 8 (major/medium) 11 (minor) for maps covering wide empty areas.

Starting with iceland (ready for download) with new contourlines, tags like helipad, shelters, alpine_huts, peaks, volcanos at very low zoom-level and a simplification factor of 3.

So I would ask all theme-composers to adjust your themes:

This is most important because most themes are made for the tagmapping-urban.xml where the zoom-mins are different – if you use these zoom-appears the maps for iceland, kapVerde, Cannary Islands, Himalaya, patagonia, Oceania will only show a fraction of whats possible and included in the maps.

I strongly recommend to completely remove the zoom-mins for

  • highways
  • waterways
  • places
  • alpine_huts
  • shelters
  • lighthouses
  • towers
  • airfields
  • helpads
  • landuses like glacier
  • aso.

OR at least adjust them according to the settings in tagmapping-min.xml

A test-version of the new andromaps_hc is available here (still not perfect with zoom-mins):
Locus
Oruxmaps
