    Mapsforge maps advance to version 5.

    That provides support for “variable tag values” via wildcards.
    i.e. store tag values in maps without needing to specify multiple value rules in tag-mapping.

    – Map writer can create map files v3, v4 and v5
    – Mapsforge + VTM readers are compatible with all map file versions

    Thanks to community work and more info is in Mapsforge forum announcement.

    In screenshot:
    Created Moscow map from OpenStreetMap data, with “tag-values=true” to store also building 3D tags.
    And VTM renders the map with all building details.

    Wow, that’s great news… many new possibilities, but as always will take some time until major apps support it. Thanks!

    If you have some time for map creation tests and check if all work ok!

    e.g. can see in latest tag-mapping the building heights / levels declarations for reference.

    today i have modified mytourbook(mt) a bit.
    http://mytourbook.sourceforge.net/mytourbook/
    mt was already able to display vtm maps, so it was not to complicate to add mapsforge.
    maybe one of the next version of mt will support it.

    if i want to show perfect outdoormaps i use oam,
    if i wand display nice 3D maps i have to use the maps from
    http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/v5/

    if you create someday some testmaps v5, i am interested…

    Mytourbook with Mapsforge V5
