Add a target format (an extension) to the map creation frame via Mobac

Postby takius » 19 Apr 2017, 14:11

( google translate )

Hello,
I would like to open this subject because I would like to open my maps created via MOBAC on a new application (CGEO)
But it only accepts .MAP format

Here is a map format accepted by the application
Http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/

Do you know if MOBAC will ever be able to create this card format so that I can open it in the application?

Not knowing the programming, it is possible that a Codec is sufficient to add this format of creation to Mobac

Thank you for reading this post

Best regards

MOBAC can only output raster images. The Mapsforge MAP format uses vector data.

Hence MOBAC will never be able to create Mapsforge MAP files. Just the other way round: MOBAC can consume MAP files and create raster images from it.

As you have already posted the link to the Mapsforge download location, why do you want to create MAP files on your own? Just download the map file for your region, upload it to your phone and use it.

If you want smaller regions you can use Mapsforge-writer + osmosis to convert OpenStreetmap data to MAP files:

thank you for your reply
In fact, I want to create my own maps with existing sources

Also, the "peculiarity" of the MAP format is to be compatible with the CGEO application which recognizes only this format

Like that, I would have my personal cards with the format that wants the application CGEO

The advantage of a vector based format is that you can change the render theme and therefore change what items are displayed or not and what color/style they appear. This is pretty complex for Mapsforge maps, read the Mapsforge Rendertheme page.
