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 features 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
24trailhead parking lots "utfartsparkering"; amenity=parking with hiking=yes,
25sports chapels; amenity=place_of_worship with hiking=yes,
26serviced and unlocked cabins and emergency shelters,
27lean-tos and viewpoints.
28
29The style sheets are modular, making reuse and customization easier.

34Cartography and symbols
35=======================
36
37The cartography in these maps are influenced by hiking maps published
38by Asker Skiklubb (http://asker-skiklubb.no/), which are essentially
39orienteering maps that have been cleaned up visually, and added POIs,
40place names and highlighting of skiing tracks and marked hiking trails.
41
42Symbols are taken from a standard created by the Norwegian mapping
43authorities, that are now freely available, and used with permission.

50This standard defines CMYK colour values for symbol classes.
51The RGB equivalents used:
52
53#d0006f (purple) -- activities
54#007d33 (green)  -- nature areas
55#b21416 (red)    -- culture and entertainment
56#007db4 (blue)   -- services and transport
57
58
59Contours or hillshading
60=======================
61
62Terrain and elevation are normally shown using contour lines and/or
63hillshading in hiking maps. Norway are affected by the fact that
64the SRTM DEM stops at 60.4° north, which includes "Nordmarka".
65viewfinderpanoramas.com and ASTER offer more coverage, but
66legal restrictions on reuse of these data sets are unclear.
67
68
69Installation and usage
70======================
71
72The style sheets require Mapnik 0.7.1.
73
74Assume the inc folder from the standard OSM Mapnik style sheet.
75It is suggested to create a symlink to a checkout of this.
76
77Import OSM data using an osm2pgsql style file where
78`importadditions.osm2pgsql.style` are appended to checkout of
79http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/export/osm2pgsql/default.style
80
81Point your generate_tiles.py script or mod_tile config
82to hikingmap.xml and/or pistemap.xml
