    Thanks again Emux. OpenAndroMaps and the available renderthemes are an amazing effort, but the documentation on rendertheme rules is scant, so there is a lot of trial and error for users. From my experiments, I don’t think there is any solution to the original request to be had by a map user through playing with the rendertheme rules.

    The best I could do was to make national parks visually distinct from other conservation zones (as different government rules apply here) and show a perimeter only at zoom levels above 13 (which avoided the prominent internal tile boundaries at lower zoom levels). With transparent fill, there is a distinct tile grid effect due to overlap of tile edges at some zoom levels, but the intrusiveness of this depends on the fill colors and transparency levels chosen. The settings were:

    Thanks Emux.

    I see the problem has also been discussed here:

    If I understand correctly, the solution that you have linked cannot be implemented by a map user (in my case an OpenAndroMap user) through an altered mapsforge rendertheme / style. It would have to be implemented by the map creator. Is that correct?

    Thank you Tobias. That explains what is going on, and gives the options clearly, even for a novice like me. Much obliged.
