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.

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

102
103(albinbakke/alpintbakke) Jeg ville rendret heisene litt lenger ut, for eksempel zoom 11 eller 12 for å indikere at "her er det noe" og en liten ide om hvor stort anlegget er.
104
105Lenger inn burde løypestrekene være en god del bredere og heisene blir litt lite synlige.
