    Hello, I apologize in advance if the following question is strange.
    Is it possible to use contour lines as areas or polygons and give each elevation range a color?
    Something similar to Tanaka Contour or a relief/elevation layer.
    My idea is to isolate the MapsForge OAM contours in a separate XML and use the contours as polygons colored by elevation ranges to get an effect similar to the Tanaka contours.
    3000|3050|3100|3150 blue
    3200|3250|3300|3350 red

    I appreciate any response and sorry again for the strangeness of this query.

    Contour lines in OAM are in the tag-mapping with the attribute force-polygon-line=”true”
    That means that they can’t be rendered as areas.
    One advantage of fore-polygon-line=”true” is to avoid artifacts as in this thread:
    So I thinks it’s better to keep it that way.

    One possibility for a map as you want to render is to generate a map with just contour lines and without this attribute. Such a map should also be relative small. Here’s a how to:

    Or you can use a function of your app, e.g. in OruxMaps:
    – Settings -> Maps -> DEM based maps -> [v] Relief map
    This adds “Relief map” in the offline maps, only for those areas for which DEM files are available. You can also tune this in the settings menu above.
