Features shading

I was looking at the Google terrain mode and I noticed that their contour number markers are rendered onto the terrain as if they are actually on the ground. This got me thinking that it could look cool if the hill shading effect was applied to features like roads as well as to natural objects. It would make them look much more part of the landscape. Maybe it would look rubbish but it could be an interesting experiment --Milliams 21:29, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

This could easily be done - just move those features from topo-features.xml and topo-areansh.xml to topo-area.xml. I'm not sure it's the way to go, but feel free to try... :)

I wrote a script to create a map legend from the style files and a description file. I mentioned it in my OSM diary, and there seemed to be some interest, so I'll post that script and a description here as soon as I can. The result can be seen at - click "Show/Hide Legend" in the bottom right. --Ahlzen 16:12, 26 June 2009 (UTC)


Any idea about how to get that nice map on a piece of paper? (except the print button in my browser...) --amai 12:40, 22 August 2010 (BST)

Links to Colorado, Massachusetts and West Coast topo maps appear to be broken

Tried these back in summer of 2013 and they worked great.

They now seem to be gone.


which supplied tiles of topographic maps for Massachusetts seems to be gone.

Can you provide the new links?


GPS version

These maps are absolutely fantastic. They are the best maps I have seen! I will use them for all the hiking planning I do! It would be wonderful to be able to transform them to .img format, and load them on Garmin GPSs, as in
