No cycle map export option

On the export tab, it is not possible to export the cycle map.

Vector based exports of this map could be useful.

Unfortunately it isn't possible - although the cyclemap is rendered by mapnik which can do vectors it is actually done (as anybody who saw Andy's talk at SOTM08 will know) by doing several renders and then merging the resulting bitmaps to get the translucent overlays for the cycle routes looking right,

Wouldn't it be possible to at least have a bitmap export like what's done with the t@h layer? At least it's better than nothing.

Well from what i know from the way works (dutch cyclemap), it is possible to render a cyclemap with only one mapnik stylesheet. It only requires a mapnik database loaded with --slim mode to load all the relations.

As Andy explained at SOTM, the reason for using multiple layers is that otherwise if two translucent lines (ie two cycleways) meet then you get the alpha channel applied twice at the junction and it looks darker.

A bitmap export would be a start at least.

And would it be that critical to allow an export where the alpha is applied twice. If people know an accept that such that they can have a svg, that's nicer than having to copy and paste rasters.
