I’ve worked on the Atlas versions a bit more, following Womisa’s contribution. I’ve updated the display of bicycle routes and cycle paths, footways/paths (not distinguished well in practice in the map data) plus what we know in the UK as byways (deprecated in OSM).
Generally, blue dashes are cycle ways, green dashes represent dual use both on bike and on foot (bridle paths in the UK), and brown shorter dashes use on foot only. There is one svg version with red dashes instead of brown for enhanced visibility.
Blue blobs are cycle routes, green blobs are hiking routes. Cycle routes are now also indicated by blue dashes on the roads.
All variants of track now have brown edges.
Footpaths, bridleways and cycleways are now indicated as such where they follow the path of a mapped track or pedestrian way. Technically, the display depends on the map data indicating that access on foot or by bike is designated or permissive, or that there is a recognised route or way.
The Locus versions are unchanged at present, but have been uploaded here again for convenience.
The key is even more outdated. I will upload a new version once I have worked out a sensible way to construct one.
The Atlas themes now includes a svg version, as suggested.
Locus fails to display all the svg symbols correctly, so this is only available in the themes for Atlas.
I still get the artefacts on both Locus and Atlas using the latest Great Britain map from this site. My “bugfix” theme is only a workaround to hide some of the worst aspects of this bug. It’s not a solution by any means.
There was a small bug in the Atlas standard version I uploaded before, so here are the correct files.
The artefacts with closed ways are still there in the latest version of Atlas but solved (or at least worked around) with my “bugfix” version. (See RAF Croughton airfield at 51.98806394040123,-1.1814135346412735).
I made an svg version of my theme for Locus, but it was interminably slow on my Android. As Locus caches the png symbols at the correct size for each zoom, it seemed a better solution, and far quicker, to create large bitmaps and let Locus rescale them. Perhaps I should make the svg version available for people with faster machines.
The Locus version is now fully scalable for different resolutions, with totally redrawn symbol set. Atlas version is designed for Emux’s Atlas but has not been updated this time round.
This theme is intended to work well outdoors, and so has high colour contrast.
The latest maps from the Locus store are rendered with a larger tile size (see http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2720.msg33873#msg33873 ) which appears to go a long way (but not all the way!) to resolving this issue. Is this worth adopting for OpenAndroMaps?
Tobias you need to update the guide for the VM in Windows, as the AndroVM download links do not exist anymore.
AndroVM site goes to Genymotion.
You can still run an Android emulator on Windows using Genymotion but there is an additional step or two.
1. Download and install the free version of Genymotion from https://www.genymotion.com/#!/download (you need to create an account). Choose the large download with Oracle VM included.
2. For update instructions on how to install Google Play services on your emulator, Google ‘Genymotion Google Play’.
2a. Alternatively, follow one or other of these instructions:
3. Restart the emulator (You may need to close it using the red cross in the normal Windows manner), sign in to Google and allow Google Play to update. This should clear the various error messages and crashes.
4. Download Locus Maps from the Google Play Store.
It works for me.
There is another route using Oracle VM VirtualBox and using Android-x86 ISO outlined in the pages below, though I’ve not attempted it.
I believe I deleted two of the original files and detached one, but the new uploads were all renamed with an extra “1”, so I’m not sure how the new files can be uploaded with the same name as the original ones.
What is the difference between delete and detach, the two options I am offered? They both deleted files from the first post.
What I was hoping for was the ability to update the attachments in the first post, which is a common way of dealing with downloads.
Contrary to what I wrote in the original post, the latest version of the theme is in the last post, as I cannot edit the first post.
Today’s update:bugfix on unclassified highway areas on bugfix versions. Also rendering of dams changed.
Themes which have been optimised for Locus won’t work with Orux and other apps, as Locus has its own extra set of commands. My Voluntary bundle, for example exists in two versions.
There was no right hand column at all. I visited the page over a number of days, thinking registration might not yet be turned on. I thought that it must be working in German, or you would have noticed, and I visited the German page. I had to register and log on in German and then changed language back to English, whereupon the right hand column appeared. Maybe I had a stuck cache.
Now working properly?
