Suggestions for new seamark renderer
Malcolm is working on new renderer. Perfect time to discuss improvements!
Dirk's point of view:
Personally I use OSeaM for trip-planning on inland waterways. I expect a nice overview showing restrictions/facilities like
- bridge heights
- no entry signs
- weirs, locks, gates
- marinas/ berthing
- fuel stations
While on my way, additional informations about
- fairways (buoys)
- passing rules
- speed limits
is of interest
- Due to iENC import, map is -at current state- filled with to many symbols. I would suggest reducing level of detail at zoom levels 14-16.
- Icon size (notice-marks) is fine, espacially on tablets.
- buoys size could be reduced (compared to beacons)
- all restricted areas should show a signature according to category
