2Norwegian hiking map
3====================
4
5Mapnik style sheets that implements conventions often seen in
6Norwegian hiking and nordic skiing maps. The separate style sheets
7for winter and summer, that feature different colour schemes.
8
9The summer map is a hiking map and includes support for these tags:
10
11trailblazed=yes (and marked_trail=blue for compatibility)
12trail_visibility=* -- indistinct trails are shown with open dashing
13tracktype=grade1-2 -- often used on "trillestier"
14tracktype=grade3-5 -- tracks from tractors or logging machines
15
16The winter map tones down paths and instead shows skiing tracks:
17
18piste:type=nordic|downhill
19piste:difficulty=*
20piste:grooming=*
21
22Additionally, hiking related POIs are shown from lower zoom levels.
23Examples are trailhead parking lots "utfartsparkering";
24amenity=parking with hiking=yes, sports chapels;
25amenity=place_of_worship with hiking=yes, serviced and unlocked cabins
26and emergency shelters, lean-tos and viewpoints.
27
28The style sheets are modular, making reuse and customization easier.

33Cartography and symbols
34=======================
35
36The cartography in these maps are influenced by hiking maps published
37by Asker Skiklubb (http://asker-skiklubb.no/), which are essentially
38orienteering maps that have been cleaned up visually, and added POIs,
39place names and highlighting of skiing tracks and marked hiking trails.
40
41Symbols are taken from a standard created by the Norwegian mapping
42authorities, that are now freely available, and used with permission.

44  Symbolfonter for friluftsliv og sport
45  [en:Symbol fonts for recreation and sport] (1997). Statens kartverk
46  Landkartdivisjonen. ISBN 82-90408-52-8, Retrieved from

48
49This standard defines CMYK colour values for symbol classes.
50The RGB equivalents used:
51
52#d0006f (purple) -- activities
53#007d33 (green)  -- nature areas
54#b21416 (red)    -- culture and entertainment
55#007db4 (blue)   -- services and transport
56
57
58Contours or hillshading
59=======================
60
61Terrain and elevation are normally shown using contour lines and/or
62hillshading in hiking maps. Norway are affected by the fact that
63the SRTM DEM stops at 60.4° north, which includes "Nordmarka".
64viewfinderpanoramas.com and ASTER offer more coverage, but
65legal restrictions on reuse of these data sets are unclear.

68Installation and usage
69======================
70
71The style sheets have been tested with Mapnik 0.7.1 and 0.6.
72Assume the inc folder from the standard OSM Mapnik style sheet.
73It is suggested to create a symlink to a checkout of this.
74
75Import OSM data using the custom osm2pgsql style
76hiking.osm2pgsql.style
77
78Point your generate_tiles.py script or mod_tile config
79to hikingmap.xml and/or pistemap.xml
