    I’m using OpenAndroMaps with XCTrack and would like to make smaller (unclassified, tertiary, secondary, etc.) roads visible at larger scales, like 10s of kilometers. Currently with hyperpilot and tiramisu render themes these roads disappear starting with the 3km scale.

    I’ve tried changing the zoom-min=”13″ to zoom-min=”9″ on some of the road types but it doesn’t seem to do anything. I’ve looked for a reference that shows how these parameters work but have’t found much except a page showing the approximate scale of different zoom levels.

    Any suggestions for how to accomplish this or to learn how to do it?



    The zoom_appear is defined in tagmapping, you cant exceed these limits by theme.
    Its impossible to include the smaller roads in zoom before zl 12 cause this would result in exceeding Mapsforge Limits and white maptiles.

    Best regards


    Great, thanks! I found this page which explains a bit more.

    Where is the tagmapping.xml file referenced? Is it used when the offline map tiles are created? I wonder if using the tagmapping-min.xml one would help?

    I realize the issue of having too much detail in populated areas. I’m focused on getting as much detail as possible in areas where there are almost no roads. When flying a paraglider over remote areas it is very useful to be able to see the (even if minor) road network on the ground for a significant distance ahead.


    My understanding is that the tagmapping.xml file is used to produce the maps on this site from OSM data. An “appropriate” tagmapping.xml file (varying from – shall we say – tagmapping-min.xml to tagmapping-max.xml) is used according to the amount of detail data expected to be displayed in that particular region.
